I misunderstood the concept of the Sandman as a kid.
My mom, checking on me before she went to bed, found me sitting up in bed. Why aren't you asleep, she wanted to know.
Calmly, I told her I was waiting for that old man to come and throw dirt in my eyes!

I used to believe that Celtic had an age-old rivalry with Queens Park Rangers.

Imagine my humiliation when, at the age of 20, and pretending to know about football, I had to be informed that there was a Glasgow Rangers. And that Celtic did not have a (frankly weird) thing against the London club QPR.

one time, my friend and i were with our mothers and younger sisters. the moms wanted the younger sisters to take a nap while my friend and i went to the playground. to refrain from upsetting the younger siblings, my mother said that the younger ones were going to "dreamland" while we went to the park. i was extremely jealous as i thought dreamland was a theme park even better than disneyworld, and i couldnt believe i had to go to the stupid playround while my sister and friend's sister went to this magic kingdom.

As a young child, I believd that the colour of a person's hair indicated the time of day that they born. Blondes were born in the morning, brunettes in the afternoon & evening and black haired people were born at night. Redheads were born only when the sky was red - that's why there weren't so many of them.

I was born on St Patricks day, and one day an old Irish man in the park told me that anyone born on St Patricksday was part leprechaun.
