When I was around 5 or 6 years old I set to work selecting gravel and hairs from my dog and cat. I took my ingredients and mixed them with some water in a coke can. I seriously considered the implications if I followed through with my experiment. I thought that this concoction would mutate me, combining the properties of each ingredient. I imagined myself years from now as a part dog/cat/rock superhero-creature. I came to the conclusion it was the right thing to do. I poured the mix over my head in the shower, and needless to say was a bit disapointed.

I used to think when you grew up you'd get to a certain age and then get to choose whether to be a boy or a girl. And I was always gonna be a boy (I'm a girl) because is seemed more fun!! Thankfully I grew out of that one :S

When I was really young I was convinced that I had a huge pet grizzly bear (and a wolf but that's another story).

I told everyone that would listen all about the bear (that lived in a tall shed on top of the hill near my house).

When they asked I'd show them the bear by holding out one hand and pointing into the palm of that hand with the other hand saying 'look, it's there, in my hand'.

Even I don't understand.

When my sister and I were little, my Mum warned us we had to eat properly at the 5 course dinner we had every Christmas. She told us that if we would chew with our mouths open, or spit something out we didn't like, my uncle would throw up. Last year my uncle died. After the funeral my Mum, my sister and I were talking about our memories of him, and my sister and I said that he must always have had a weak stomach, because something small like people chewing with their mouths open would make him throw up. My Mum suddenly had to leave the room, and when we followed her to see if she was all right, we found out that she was laughing her head off. Somehow it had never occurred to my sister (31) and me (33) that my Mum just invented this throwing up story to make us behave ...
