I overheard my grandfather ask, "Who owns the media in New Zealand?" but I thought he was saying, "Amelia". Amelia is his cat, and we live in New Zealand, so I was like, "You do!".
I used to believe that a 'wolverine' was the girl version of a wolf.
When we first got our cat, he was a claw and tooth ninja. I was also seven years old and going through the "pants are unnecessary" phase. So my mum tried to get me to wear pants by calling them "cat protectors", but I was worried that they'd make him run away.
When I was a kid I used to believe that earthquakes were caused by stranger forces like aliens' satellites :v
I thought dogs only peed on people in America! The reason for this is because there's a Garfield movie where they are visiting somewhere (I think Britain) and Odie plans to pee on somebody, but Garfield says, "Don't do the ugly American thing!".
When I was little I believed that kangaroos were a kind of a dinosaur, because I had a toy dinosaur that looked like a kangaroo.
I used to really think that a ferret was a type of parrot because their names rhyme.
I used to believe that the moon was cheese and a rabbit lived there, sometimes I think it was true :)
I used to believe all deer were girls, and all moose were boys.
So, we had a dog named Rodin when I was a kid, and he was doing well until he got cancer. The only reason I didn’t kiss him goodbye before he was put down, was because I though cancer was contagious and didn’t want to contract it.
I had the IQ of a toothbrush. 😞
