I used to believe only black & white spotted cows can make milk; therefore, they are all female cows. The sad part is I didn't realize it's not true til I was in college!!

My brother told me that anyone with an arm band, like the ones bartenders used to wear in old western movies, murdered his brother. So, I thought that anyone wearing any kind of bracelet high on the arm; around their bicep, murdered their brother. In the seventies, these bracelets were very popular among women, so I thought I was often surrounded by murderers.

My dad told me when I was little that he was an accountant, that he did math and worked with numbers. Naturally, I thought he was a 'count' like the count on sesame street. I couldn't understand why he never wore a cape to work.

In Denmark (where I grew up) a calculator is called something that would translate back into "Pocket Calculator".
Because of this I often wondered as a child, how such a device could calculate the contents of my pockets.

When I was a kid, I thought that libraries got all their funding from overdue fines. We had a pretty lousy branch library, so I would hold onto books long after I'd read them so I'd have to pay an extra nickel or dime and maybe they'd be able to buy more books.

I once stole my great grandmother's dentures and hid them under my pillow. If one tooth got me a dollar imagine what a whole mouthful would get!

The next morning I gave her back her dentures and cried because the tooth fairy left a note it said "Don't try to trick me again or I'll take the teeth right out of your mouth!" Then everytime I lost a tooth I left a note saying "It's real!"

I didn't know my grandpa had left that note until I had lost all my baby teeth.
