While singing Christmas carols as a child, I was confused by "Angels We Have Heard on High." Instead of "in excelsis Deo," I thought it was "in Aunt Chelsea's stable."

I used to think "an armed person" meant a person without any arms. I grew up during the Vietnam War and so there was a lot of news about "armed camps." I imagined children with hooks standing around the campfire and playing games. (Naturally, crime reports on the news about "armed robbers" and gave me equally vivid mental pictures.

When I was little my dad told me that the girl playing noughts and crosses with the clown doll on the Test Card was me [this was 30 odd years ago in the UK] and I thought it was me [she did look a lot like me], I couldn't figure out how they'd managed to film me playing noughts and crosses with a doll that I didn't own ...

My parent's told me that if you push the button at the end of the handbrake in the car, the car will automatically flip onto it's head. When I was 14 my buddy and I were sitting in the car and he reached for the handbrake button - I hit him! He was not amused until I explained to him why I did it. Then he was VERY amused!
