When I was younger I used to believe that Albuquerque was in Japan, because my Japanese grandparents had a house there. This illusion was shattered when the pizza man came to the door and spoke english.... and was white.

I used to believe that there were other colours, people just hadn't found them yet. I imagined it might look like a pattern. I would spend hours trying to think of this new colour while looking under rocks and behind chairs.

When I was small my dad told me that if I unscrewed my belly button that my butt would fall off! I believed him and when people would try and tickle me I would yell " Dont touch my belly button or my butt will fall off!"

A girl in my class believed that I was a undercover ape. In pre school I played that I was a gorilla swinging in the trees and beated my chest while I shouted like Tarzan. I also ate a lot of bananas and other fruit as well as nuts. It was cleared up when she told her mum and she called over to my mother to tell her the news.

A cousin of mine used to believe that you could only see movies in the country in which they were made. Since Star Wars was an American movie, you could only see it in America, and if the Brits wanted to see Star Wars, for example, they would have to make their own British version.

Little did he know that most of Star Wars was filmed in Britain!
