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.

Turtles can fly. I believed it for ages.

My turtle got lost or probably died and I was told it flew away.

When we were little and on a trip, my Dad would keep us quiet by telling us to look for "Spam animals". These were cute little fuzzy creatures with big eyes that lived on the top of hills and where spam meat came from. It would keep me, my sister and brother busy. Sometimes we even thought we spotted some.

When I was a kid I used to believe that sharks kill by slicing you with their dorsal fin. That was because of it's shape and the the way it looked as it slices through surface of the water. It didn't even occur to me then that they actually ate you.

I have kept fish all my life, and we have to put stuff in the water that keeps the chlorine in tap water from poisoning the fish. On the bottle, it says it also eliminates nitrate and nitrite, which are bad for fish. Well, I thought these were the same thing as nitrogen, so when I found out that a huge percent of our air is nitrogen, I was terrified, because I thought, That's the stuff that kills fish!

My mother once said that if I watch an animal poop, I would go blind. I was definitely old enough to know this was a lie at the time but I certainly have never risked it.

I used to believe that the reason swimming pools had a deep end was because a whale lived there. I assumed that when people came to swim they moved the whale to a different pool for a few hours. I was always scared that they would forget to move the whale and it would be there to eat me when I went swimming.

When i was a little kid, i vaguely remember seeing camels walking around a big open space. It must have been at a zoo, but i was too young to remember that part and believed for a really long time that I'd seen the camels near my childhood home, in "the wild". I remember being really shocked and confused when i learned that camels were "desert animals" and not actually native to northern Indiana.
