I used to think stage makeup was like ordinary makeup, and that people would do things like draw on themselves with lipstick to look like blood or use eyebrow or eyeliner pencils to give themselves spots. It does sound fun.

When I first heard the word "lumberjack", I thought it was "Numberjack" like the TV show The Numberjacks. When I was corrected, I thought a lumberjack was a dude named Jack who lumbered around.

i used to believe I would be the doctor. Because I thought Heal the wounded and rescue the dying was the greatest things in the world. And I used to watch some programmes of the doctor, and they were very intelligent.

When I was a little boy, I used to believe my father went in the fire to help the people, I saw him like a hero. But he is just a fireman. It's only his job.
Because in the movie I only saw the heroic side but in the reality it's a dangerous job, he needs courage fot this job.
But I feel protect, in security with my father.
I love my dad ! He remains a hero ! My hero !

When I was in kindergarten, my teachers occasionally mentioned Mr. Mont, the school principal. A good ways into the year, we were told Mr. Mont was dropping by the classroom for a visit. And so he did, but imagine my disappointment when he turned out to be a human... since, for some strange reason, I'd been expecting a kangaroo. I'll never know why, but up until the point I actually saw him in person, every mention of Mr. Mont conjured up the mental image of a real, live kangaroo who was led around the school on a leash.

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.

When I was 19 i used to believe that I wasn' t able to be a person of success, because i didn't believe in myself.
Now I found out the power of ideas,
the opportunity make by knowledge,
the energy of massive action and persistency:)

Remember when you were told "you can't be what you want to be when you grow up unless you do good in school"? i used to think it meant someone had to choose for you. then i learned you actually couldn't get a career at all.

As a child, I overheard my mom talking with someone about an acquaintance who got fired, and literally took it to mean that people who do a bad job get killed by being thrown into a fire. For a while I was terrified of what would happen if I wasn't good at my job when I grew up

When my husband was a kid his mom worked as a bartender, and he thought that meant she was allowed to get drunk at work. How else was she to know how the drinks she made tasted?

I was once a young, Catholic schoolgirl who didn't think that nuns had to pee. I also didn't know that Christian monks existed- I thought they were all "Chinese Pagan." Thank goodness I never said that ot loud.

My cousin and I had a long conversation about popularity and princesses when we were little. We were convinced that if we became really popular, people would elect us to be princesses and we'd live in huge mansions.
