When I was little I thought that people who worked in grocery stores spent their entire lives living inside the stores and that they didn't have families nor even knew about the outside world.

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.

I used to go to work overnight on a bus (I don't know why I just did - ok) but everytime someone asked my son what Dad did he said I was a bus driver. I eventually had to create a book on what dad really did (which was managing agas plant).

When I was in third grade, I thought my dad was a spy. He used to travel to all these weird places around the world and send post cards telling my brothers and I that he was "fishing."
I finally got sent to the principles office for lying (of course I told everyone he was a spy). Didn't stop me thinking it though.

When I was about 5 my father belonged to the Rotary Club. Each year the Rotary Club ran the Merry Go Round at the 4th of July Fair, so it made perfect sense to me that my dad was actually in the Rodeo. That he wore a suit to work every day, and didn't own or ride a horse made no difference to me. My dad was in the rodeo. I still laugh at the idea of my dad in the rodeo.

When I was a kid I used to think that the critics were actually a real board of people whose job it was to find problems with everyones work. I decided that I wanted to be one when I grew up.

when my mother talked about being "paid under
the table", i thought she actually had to get under
a table (with her boss) to get her money. i also
believed that "getting fired" meant your boss would
come after you with actual fire. which, i suppose,
could really happen.

I used to think that Lawyers were being called liars. I suppose some still do, but I didn't know it was a profession at the time.

Our neighbourhood was across the street from a large university. The buildings that faced our neighbourhood contained the medical school and the teacher's college. (There were lots of other buildings, but I never saw them) Therefore, I thought that I had to be a doctor or a teacher when I grew up, because those were the only things you could learn how to be in that city. I never questioned how my father had managed to go to that same university and become a programmer...

Whan I was younger I never understood why someone would like to be a a boss. The boss is the one that has to pay all the workers, and why would you wnat to have a job were you have to pay instead of getting paid.

I used to believe that you had to pay a one time sum to get a job and that the amount depended on how good the job was.

During a topic about the solar system in year 2 (age 7?) I told my teacher that my dad went to the moon with the Navy. I wasn't deliberatly lying, i really thought he'd been there on his ship.

when i was a child i used to believe that study a career means that you have to enter for a race, and that in the finishing line there will be some kind of cartels with the name of the differet carees so you have yo be very fast to reach the career you was intended to study!

I also thought that be a mother was a career, so yu cannot be for example a doctor and have children at the same time!
