I used to believe that everybody who was bigger or taller than I was always older than me.

When I was a kid, I was convinced that everyone in the world lived to be 100 years old. I even rationalized that when people were angry with me, it was "because they were upset that they only had 64 years left to live, and they were jealous that I had 95." Hmmm, must have been a parent? :)

I used to believe that when you grew up there was a magic age, that when you turned 25, you would magically know everything there was to know and life would make complete sense.

I used to think that when you were an adult you never slept because as you got older you got to stay up later and later, so i thought that eventually you just didn't sleep.

As child when ever I did something I wasn't necesarily supposed to do, all i heard my parents say about it was "it's a phase...phase this and phase that...etc."

One day I over heard my parents and my aunt talking about one of their cousins, and how he was gay. So I asked "What's gay?" and they said "Oh nothing son, it's just a phase he's going through" after I found out what "gay" was I thought "Oh shit I have to go through a GAY phase too?!?!" Needless to say that up until I was 11 I used to believe that being gay was a phase we HAD to go through and I was NOT looking forward to that phase.

My best friend in elementary school believed that when you grew up, you could become inanimate object. Up until middle school she was convinced that she was going to grow up to be a stop sign!

I got in trouble at school once for saying my great-grandma was born in the year 1. That's what everyone at home said, she even said it herself. The confusion was cleared up when she went to school with me and explained to the teacher that she *was* born in the year 1-- 1901.

When I was 3, I was at home with the chicken pox and I remember I was curled up in my mom's lap. I asked her if grandmas and grandpas got smaller as they got older and turned back into babies. I remembered people saying that old people got shorter and just thought maybe they turned into babies again.

I used to believe that you'd be certain heights at certain ages, and instead of growing gradually you'd just scale up at the exact moment that you were born on your birthday. I remember watching my sister closely for her 13th birthday (I was 7 or 8 at the time) and being really disappointed when she didn't suddenly grow a foot taller.

When I was little I used to believe that when I learned or experienced new things, my old memories would be pushed out of my mind. Because of my concern, I was afraid to learn new things!

When I was little, my grandfather told us kids that he was so old, he served coffee and donuts to the Pilgrims when they landed here. He was pretty old, so we believed him!

When I was 5, I was on an airplane when I heard a man ask an older man how old he was. He may have said "71" or "81" but I only heard "one". For a long time I thought that we start back at 1 once we got to 100 years old.

I used to think that adults right and left were different than kids right and left because teachers would always say, "My right your left."

I used to believe that I really COULD be anything I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a unicorn.

From the time I was in 1st grade to 3rd grade I knew that I wanted to be a lesbian when I grew up. I knew that meant when a girl loves another girl, and I loved my mom!!!

I used to believe that I would never grow up, because I "wanted" to remain a child. Ha. That one fell through

Once, when I was 5, my brother and I were swimming in our pool. My fingers were starting to get wrinkly and I showed him. He told me that meant I was turning into an old lady. I cried.
