When I was little I used to watch "Seasame Street" all the time and one of the episodes Burt and Ernie are fishing. Burt is not catching anything oso ernie goes "Here Fishie fishie!" and a fish jumps in the boat. well I was out fishing with my dad and we were not catching any thing, so I do this and suddenly we are getting bites!!! to this day my dad will ask me to call the fishies in at random times.... I AM 26!!! .... still works though! lol

My best friend and I used to go over to each other's houses and try to catch leprechauns! We would leave out candy and dollhouses for them to stay in. The weird thing is, once we left out a few oreo cookies in the kitchen, and probably about ten minutes later there was a small trail of cookie crumbs with a tiny chunk taken out of the cookie. My sister was still in diapers and my dad promised me he wouldn't touch the cookies. I've never worked up the nerve to ask my mom if she was the one who did it or not.

When I was 5 or so my father took up curling at the local rink. For the life of me I couldn't figure out why he would go, since he was bald......As you can tell, I'm not a sports fan.

When I was young, I used to think that a "problem" was an actual, physical object. Whenever my parents said something along the lines of "we have a problem", I would searching around the house for the problem so I could throw it away. :)

when i used to take baths with my big sister as a child, my 16 year old sister told us that if you put sea salt in the bathtub that you would turn into a mermaid. when she put the salt in, it took 5 minutes before my sister and i started thinking that we could see fins! we ran out of the bathroom so fast!! haha

I used to think I could make televisions or radios using household materials. I gathered napkins, pieces of wood, toothpicks, and other random objects, and set about arranging them and hoping for the best. I figured I just had to position them in SOME way and it would work.

LOVED this site! My Mom used to set up our plastic bowling pin set in the long hallway in our house when it was storming, and when we heard thunder it was because an angel had bowled a strike! Years later I learned she did it because she was frightened by storms.
