When my sister and I were little and the Easter time came around, we thought that you could give any food up for lent. My sister decided to give up fruit and vegetables for lent. That didn't go down well with mum and dad...

I thought that you say "In the name of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Amen" before you pray, and then again after, because that is a toggle switch for prayer on/off.

I didnt realize that the purpose of the buttons on the front of drinking machines for handicapped people were to make the machine more accessible to those in wheelchairs, instead, I thought that button dispensed some special type of water, containing medicine or vitamins so that the handicapped people would get better. I always made sure not to push that button and drink the "handicapped water" because nothing was wrong with me.

I used to think those guys in red tunics at the Tower of London fed bees, because they were called Bee-Feeders. Those bees would then, of course, make the honey for the queen's morning toast.

I grew up on a small cattle ranch, and honestly believed that we got steaks from shearing cattle the same way the neighbors got wool from shearing their sheep. Imagine my father's surprise when I asked him at dinner "do cows shivered when you take their meat off?".

I had no idea they actually died before you could eat their beef!

I used to believe that when I went to sleep at night, my parents hid in the hallway plotting to kill me. I trusted my stuffed cat to protect me and knew he had done his job every night when he was on the floor in the morning and had been in my arms at bedtime.

When me and my sister were little we used to believe you could go "catch" a star. We were gonna go get it with a space shuttle, but we'd have to share it because the stars would try to float back home and we didn't think space shuttles would be able to "hold down" more than one.
