I thought that highway signs reading "NO LITTERING. UP TO $100 FINE" meant that the cash value of what you threw away mattered somehow. It was "fine" to litter soda cans and old newspapers, but it was illegal to toss TVs or cars, because those cost more than $100. To me, this explained why all the highway litter was cheap junk.

I believed that the milkman was really an elf. I used to try to stay up all night so I could see the elf for myself delivering our milk. I failed miserably until I was about six. I finally managed to stay awake. When I saw the truck stop I thought my heart heart was going to burst! Imagine my dissappointment when a regular guy walked up to my porch. It was my first major dissappointment in life.

I believed that when you shut your eyes tightly and shook your head really fast, you'd forget everything that was just told to you...As if you were shaking the memories off your brain before they stayed for too long and became permanant. For years I told my parents and all my friends every birthday and christmas present they were going to get from me, as long as they promised to shut their eyes and shake their heads after I told them.
