I used to believe that elephants came from peanuts. I tried to grow the elephants in dixie cups filled with dirt and peanuts- lined up on the window sill.

Whenever we were driving and saw a dead animal, I always thought it was sleeping. I would ask my dad, "Why is the deer (or raccoon, squirrel, etc.) sleeping there, Daddy?" and he would say, "I don't know but that's not a very good place for it to sleep, it'll get run over." It never occurred to me until later in life that animals don't just sleep in the middle of the road..

When I was at a restaurant when I was little, I was told by my sister that if you mix salt and pepper into your water, baby sharks are born. I believed this for a few years, and one day I tried it. I grabbed the salt, pepper, and a glass of water and went outside to my driveway. Needless to say, I had a good laugh.

When I was younger my dad told me polyester cam from furry little creatures that looked like deer. When I asked if they shaved them like they did sheep, he said no, they have to kill the little polyesters. I believed him until I was 14.

When I was a kid I had a bunch of pet Gerbils. My brother somehow convinced me that gerbils were horses that were bred down to size.

While driving threw the mountains, my dad would barely swerve over to hit the rumble strips and he'd tell me they were mountain cows. Somehow, I could never see them. After awhile my older brother caught on and helped out my dad by telling me that mountain cows eat barbie hair. I had a death grip while holding my barbies head out the window, and when I'd turn away from the window my dad would hit the rumble strips and I'd yank my barbie into the car as fast as I can. I believed in mountain cows until I was about 8...

When I was little we used to drive to Minnesota every year. We would go by a lot of cow fields and at night I thought I kept seeing the same one in every field. I thought he was following us and I named him 'The Night Cow'.

I was so scared about the movie "Jaws" that I was sure that sharks could be anywhere with water! I was constantly afraid that the person who lived underneath my apartment could have a shark is his bathtub as a pet, so i used to take a shower very quickly! The same thought was applied to the swimming pool! And in any moment the floor would open and a shark would come out! I never stayed alone at the pool, and in one afternoon, when my mom called me to go inside i answered, "I can't go now, they (my two sister and my father) are still in the pool and I need to take care of them. It's late and the shark will come at any moment!". After all, who could better save them from this beast than a 7 years old girl? No one!! I knew all about sharks and their evil plans and dirty secrets!

I used to be that sheep had no knees, and if they feel over they would die because they wouldn't be able to get back up again. I thought it was a sheep farmers job to go check on the sheep and save the sheep that had feel over..

When I was young, my aunt used to tell me that the gurgling sound the sink made when all the water was let out after we finished the dishes was her pet alligator. I still haven't stuck my hand down drain, but mostly because I know it's just gross in there.

When I was younger, I thought that the pieces of seaweed that washed up on the beach were shark guts. For years, I ran away whenever I saw them, and I wouldn't got in the water.
