When my mom used to say dad went to work to get money, I imagined my dad standing at this large counter filling out checks

When my mom told me that I was born abroad because my father was posted to another country and that he had worked at the Canadian embassy there, I told everyone that my father was an ambassador. (My father was an office clerk). I thought that all people who worked at an embassy were ambassadors. My mother tried to set me straight, but I didn't really believe her. To me, my father was an ambassador!

Yea,there is no doubt that the children think in there own way and perhaps it would have been a better world sometimes if the cids was in charge.I remember one time when i was a smal kid and was going to the town Copenhagen in the neighbour country Denmark.Was sitting there with my father in a sunny summer day and enjoyed my icecream when two wath i thinked realy fine dressed ladys was pasing our bench there we was sitting and looking at people.I told my father wath it probably was some realy rich ladys considering the nice cloths they was having,He laughd and lay one hand on my shoulder and told me that these fine looking ladys was something they caled prostitues.Didnt have a clue in this time to wath this was so i still think they looked realy pritty.Now he is realy old but sometimes we use to laugh at storys like these from the past when he never ever gets tired to hear them!. :)

I remember watching Madonna's "Lucky Star" video and telling my mother, "When I grow up, I want to marry Madonna." As in marry her as a career. Some boys wanted to be fireman and I wanted to be Mr. Ciccone, which, I guess, still could be a plausible career choice.

I used to think that the phrase "Why don't you get a day job" ment actually "why don't you get a job that gives you employment during the day?"

So when my dad, who was working night-shift at the time, was grumbling about working at night,
I asked him Why don't you get a day job?

He started laughing...
I now no what that phrase means

I always thought the coast was the best place in the world, and so I didn't think anyone had to work there unless they really wanted to. So I wanted to get a house by the coast so I wouldn't have to work.

One summer I realized all kids got a break from school in the summer. So I asked Mom, "Does Dad go on summer vacation from work, too?" I guess I thought Dad was going to some kind of grown up school.

When I was younger, I used to believe that my mom worked as the tooth fairy. I thought that she got gold dollers from the bank, put it under my pillow, and took my tooth and...well I don't know what she would do with teeth, but that is what I thought.
