i used to believe that people never stopped growing. i was very concerned about this for logistical reasons, and it took my parents months to grasp that when i repeatedly asked "what happens when you get too big for your house," i was not speaking metaphorically. for some reason i never noticed there weren't gigantic 20ft+ people around everywhere.

I was convinced that your clothes would grow right along with you. I was happy to know I could wear my favorite shirt forever.

When I was a child, I used to believe that my father was as young as me. He was born on the 14th. of april and I was born on the 16th., just two days later! I didn't understand the time and why he seemed older and wrinkled than me.

When I was little. I always thought that when grown ups were young I was old and that when I became old again, the grown ups would become young again.

I thought that enchiladas were an inch long (inch-aladas). Before I had a good grasp on what an inch was, I thought this meant that an inch was fairly big, the size of an enchilada. I kept assuming that an inch was big, bigger and bigger until I was set straight after declaring that a car was an inch long.

I was the youngest of 5 children. The three oldest were 10, 11, and 12 years older than me. I believed that as I grew up, they would get smaller, so I would have a fair chance at getting them back.

I used to believe that if you were a boy when you were born then you grew up to be a girl & vice versa. Thanks Grandpa.... then my Dad tried to convince my kids of the same thing - luckily they were smnarter than me - imagine my embarassment when i went to school & told people that my Grandpa used to be a little girl!

I used to believe that when a person got old, they turned Italian- as a child the only old people I knew actually spoke Italian, I had never come in contact with a non-Italian senior.

I believed that people in the fifties couldn't see in color. When I was about eight years old I said to my mother, "Mom, when did you start seeing in color?" She was born in 1953.

The day I turned nine I had to ask my mother how old I was going to be. Sarcastically, she answered, "Nine hundred! How old do you think you are, dummy?!" I went all the rest of that week thinking I was nine hundred years old.

when i was around 6 or 7, I asked my grandmother how did she get wrinkles and she told me that some guy in Colombia named Carlos did them for her. I didnt want to be rude and ask "why because wrinkles make you look ugly?' Not until i was around 11 or 12 i realized it was old age.



She doesnt remember telling me that story -__-

When I was young I had a babysitter who took hormone pills but she said "homeown" (say it in your head), so I thought that when you owned a house you had to take pills.

I also believed that when playing in the ocean and the waves went over you they were actually going through you.
