When i was in about third grade, there was a major fire across the street and up a bit from the school. this put the entire school onto a fire-safety trend, and we would have fire drills every two weeks or so. During the first one of these (which i thought was a real fire) we were told to line up against the back fence. I thought that if we were too close, the school would literally explode and kill us all.

My older sisters loved Gloria Estefan when I was little. One of their favorite songs to play was "Rhythm is Gonna Get You." I was terrified, because I didn't know what rhythm was, and I didn't want it to get me when I turn out all the lights!

when i was little i used to believe that everytime you listened to the radio it was actually playing live. In a place at a specific time. and i thought that all the artists were best friends due to the fact that the next song came quickly. I was completely crushed because i found out that it wasnt true when i was listening to ''Try Again'' by Aaliyah. . .and before that it said that it was a dedication to Aaliyah

I used to believe that people really got killed in movies and on television. I didn't understand why they would give up their lives for the sake of entertainment.

I had a friend (Tom) at primary school who was forever getting his words mixed up. He arrived home one afternoon and told his mother he had been exercising in the school's new gin museum (he meant gymnasium).

Up until I was about 10, in my mom's car as she was backing up out of our driveway, I never noticed she used the handle to put the car in reverse. I always thought the car knew what she was thinking, and she would think "go backwards" and the car would.
