When i was 5 & 6 years old i kept close watch on the bird seeds we planted each summer during Vacation Bible School for the birds that were sure to be produced. I firmly believed that "bird seeds" would produce birds in the same way that watermelon seeds produced watermelon.

My mon said I used to be afraid to play in the backyard because peacocks would get me, and I would yell at peacocks that weren't there. I don't remember it but she said I saw a boy severely pecked by a peacock at the zoo.

When I was little (grade 2 maybe) I saw a seagull pick up some chewing gum. It started expanding like it was in a bubble so I thought birds were smart and acted like humans!

When i was really little, at school, a teacher told us that we didnt listen because birds had flown in at night and made nests in our ears. i believed this for ages and was hopelessly trying to clean out the nests and close the window every night.

I used to be scared of pigeons because they were always in the playground. I was afraid that they would peck the backs of my bare calves and the blood would gush out - as though my calves were just thin bags of blood that could be popped!

As a child, I thought that the yolk of the egg was the part that would have become the chick if it had been allowed to mature - probably because it was yellow. I wouldn't eat egg yolks because I thought I was eating a premature, liquified chick. One time I refused to eat my birthday cake because I saw my mom put an egg in it. Even after I finally believed the adults that were telling me it was just the food sack that would have fed the chick, it took a long time before I'd eat the yolk.

My brother Adam once believed that when a person said a bird "soared" through the sky that it was "sore". One day my mother commented on an eagle that was soaring through the sky, and he got teary eyed. He felt so bad for the poor eagle for being sore.

As a small child, i had a habit of running around naked until my Grampy would tell me that the blackbirds were on the way to come and peck "it" off!
