I used to admire the grown-ups very much. They apparently did not rest or sleep at all - working all day, spending all night having sex (as in the movies), always getting up earlier than me to prepare my breakfast... Wow! No wonder they kept telling me: Sleep while you may, when you're grown-up, you won't have the chance any more! So I slept diligently to catch up as much as I could and I feared growing up as it seemed to be so demanding. (Well, now, with two small kids, I know they were right! :-)

I used to believe that teachers lived at school.
When I was 6, my daycare teacher's husband was running for public office and they were both on TV, my mom brought this to my attention I said it couldn't be her because she was at school. LOL

I used to think a "con artist" was an actual type of artist, like a sculptor or something. My mom was surprised to hear that I was thinking about being a con artist when I grew up!

When i was a young, I knew someone who worked for the local sewer authority, and I used to believe that he worked in the actual sewers and I always wondered whenever I saw the man, he was never dirty. Of course since I am not a child anymore, i know that he does not crawl in the sewers

When I was little I wanted to become a Vampire as an adult (this was way before Twilight) and thought this would be a normal "job" for adults. Since the blood-sucking was not my thing I figured out it would be the same to suck red jam out of donuts. I was really looking forward to becoming a vampire and eating donuts all the time :)

When I was young, my mom was an accountant. Every quarter she'd stay at work until very late to "look for money that went missing in the books" I had always pictured my mom running around a library shaking out the pages in actual books, so the missing money would fall out.
