I can remember blowing a dandelion and wishing out loud to grow older than my older sister. I guess my concept of time was whacked, but I thought that maybe I would lap him in age...or something.

When I was little I knew my grandparents, but I didn't know that grandparents meant my parents' parents. When my mom talked about her parents, I thought she was talking about other people I had never met.

I used to believe there are two types of grown-ups.
/ Type 1 would be the people who get married, become parents, and go to "work" (usually in an office) every day.
/ Type 2 would be those with an "actual profession" (as opposed to office workers) For example: teachers, bus drivers, firemen, etc. The main difference, however, would be that these people stayed single for their entire life, and couldn't have children.
/ In other words: Type 1 help raising people who would then decide between type 1 and 2, whereas type 2 serve the entire community.

I used to believe that a godparent was a biological relative, possibly a really old one (like a great-grandparent) since 'God' was supposed to be an old man.

Ok... You know when grown ups say: "You can be anything you want when you grow up" that it only means like a job? Well, my brother took it way too literally. My mom asked my 5 year old brother what he wanted to be, and he said, get this, a "Zoura" from Pokemon. She then looked at me, I was 13 at the time, and she asked what that was. I then spent an hour explaining Pokemon to my parents. And now Pokemon go is out? Oh my...

That guy with a brother that wants to be a zoura.

I used to believe that if you kissed a boy at a young age, that boy will be your sweetheart when you become a grown up, no matter what. I saw a little girl kiss 3 boys in a row and they all ran screaming in horror. I then wondered how someone could have 3 sweethearts and believed that until I was 9. I'm 10 now.

Still have no idea where that belief came from. I'm a strange kid.
