When I was about five or six, I thought the "Hazard" button on a car, if pressed while the car was in motion, would make the car do a jump ala "The Dukes Of Hazzard". I never got up the nerve to press it, though.

When I was very little I had 4 or 5 imaginary friends. My mom told me a few years ago she used to worry about me, because I would change my voice and pretend to have conversations with them - with me speaking for them. :)

The only one I remember clearly is Goldilocks. She loved to cut off people's heads and eat them with catsup and mustard.

When my older brother and sister would pick on me I would threaten to call my imaginary friends if they didn't treat me better. They always just laughed...

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!
