When I was around 5, my parents brought ducks home. They said that it would be my pet. The next day they were butchering and cooking it. I asked "What did they ever do to you?" and didn't get a good response. I never ate duck (or didn't like to eat it) ever again.

before i could read and write, my mother ingrained in me that the droppings of birds were called 'bird spit' rather than the 1 letter difference of which at the time i had no knowledge. for a long time, i thought that bird droppings were universally known as spit even though it had nothing to do with saliva, just as a baby goat was called a kid, even though it wasn't human.

That our car roof was a roosting place for incredibly noisy and thus large birds. It wasn't until I was six that I noticed that these bird landings corresponded exactly with my Dads arm being out of the car window.
