When I was little, we had one of those automatic car washes down the street. This particular one had picture of a donkey next to its name. Being young, I was petrified of sitting in the car as it went through the car wash. So my mother, trying to calm my nerves, told me that there were donkeys in the car wash. I don't think I had ever freaked out so bad in my life! I pictured donkeys lurking up in the machinery, then jumped down and smashing the windows of our car with their hooves!

While I was living in Pakistan as a child I used to catch ghecko's (lizards) and sometimes I would accidentially grab their tail which they would then let fall off. In my horror I would pick up the fallen tail and run to my mother for a bandaid to attach the tail back on to the lizard. I guess I just thought bandaids could fix anything.

I used to believe that taxidermied creatures were alive and that by some magical force they hybernated during the day, and came alive at night. Also if only their head was sticking out of the wall, their body was behind it. I used to tell them that I knew their secret.

I belived that until i was about 9 years old.

Okay, this one's for my sister. When she was about 24 years old, she and her cousin rented an apartment together. Well, one evening he was watching the Discovery channel. The program was about zebras. My sister walked by him and began to laugh hysterically. When he asked her why she was laughing, she said "You don't really believe in zebras, do you?, I guess you believe in unicorns, too".

Our bus driver's daughter rides along on our route, so everyone on the bus talks to her before our stop.
She's pretty little, so everyone always says stuff like,"what does a cat say?" One day, somebody said "what sound does a shark make?" and she starts making the "scary music" theme from jaws! (da da, DA DA, NANANANA!)She thought that sharks made that sound, because in the movie scary music plays before it attacks someone... cute...

When I was very small I had a stuffed monkey, which I loved. One day I left it on the bus and my mother couldnt get it back so she later went out and bought me a cuddly giraffe. I cried when I noticed it wasnt the monkey and my dad said that when monkeys grew up they grew into giraffes. I believed this until 5th grade when we were learnng about evolution in science.
My teacher asked:"what did apes and monkeys evolve into"?
Si put up my hand and said:"GIRAFFES" everyone teased me for months after that. I have never been able to forgive my father.

I used to believe that the "beeswax" in furniture polish came from the ears of bees - 'cos my wax came from my ears ( frequently syrenged as a child)! I used to wonder how they caught them, how small their ears must have been and if they had really small cotton buds made especially for the purpose.

I was 5 or 6 when my father told me that there were elephants that lived in the trees across the street. At first I didn't believe him, but he said they only came out at night. So we left some peanuts out for them one night. The next morning when the peanuts were gone I was convinced that there really were elephants that lived in the trees!

When I was a little girl my dad once pointed out to me some deer droppings while we were on a camping trip. Apparently he was pointing at the real thing, but what caught my attention instead were blue juniper berries on the ground, and I thought that this is what he was referring to. For years I thought that juniper berries were deer poo and wondered why it was blue and how the heck the deer got their poo to stick to the trees like that...

When I was about 7, I decided that rocks were really dinosaur eggs. So for about a week, I left five rocks in my sink, trying to get them warmer so they'd hatch and I'd have some pet dinosaurs. I even planned on keeping them in the backyard when they got bigger. Then if the got out of control, I'd probably move to a farm...

My niece had a funny understanding of evolution thanks to a tadpole. She witnessed a tadpole become a frog. So she was under the impression that women gave birth to apes that turned into humans as they grew older.

When I was about 3 or 4, my older sister (about 20 at the time) thought it would be funny to have me watch JAWS. Because of this, I thought the sound sharks made was the JAWS theme. Doggies go "bark," sharks go "dun dun...dun dun..."

My sister's boyfriend was quite bemused when I announced my frustration that the sharks weren't "singing" at the aquarium the next week.
