When I was about 5, I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I replied with "Police dog", genuinely believing that it was possible. I'm amazed my parents didn't just put me in a box labelled "unwanted" and leave me out in the street.

I used to think those guys in red tunics at the Tower of London fed bees, because they were called Bee-Feeders. Those bees would then, of course, make the honey for the queen's morning toast.

When I was about 4, I saw a TV show that went behind the scenes of the musical CATS. I was fascinated by the actors putting on their makeup and wigs; unfortunately, it never showed them taking these things off. This caused me to believe for a few months that they were being permanently changed into creepy cat people, destined to do nothing but perform in CATS for the rest of their lives.

When I was 14 I went through a Jane Austin phase. Around the same time I decided I was going to be a childcare worker when I finished school.

On the train one day a man asked me what I was going to do when I finished school and I told him I was going to be a wet nurse.

He was absolutely stunned for a few seconds and then said that that was a very unusual occupation these days and I looked at him as though he were mad and said 'Are you kidding? It's very common!" and then changed seats so I wouldn't have to sit next to the madman any longer.

It was a year or two later that I found out what a wet nurse does... and I will remember that poor man's expression forever.

When i was little i my mom told me about how that if she was late too many times she would be fired. i was horrified at this statement and pictured the people at her work making my mom climb into a fireplace. needless to say, i never took too long in the morning to get ready again.

I used to believe that "exotic dancers" were girls who did choreographed dance routines with wild animals. I wanted to be one until I was like 11, when I found out that "exotic dancer" was a euphemism for stripper.

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.

For the longest time, possibly even into adulthood, I thought that cart with one wheel and two handles that workers sometimes use to wheel around anything from dirt to crap to cement mix was called a wheel barrel instead of a wheelbarrow. Strange how no one corrected me during all the times I had talked about wheel barrels. Then one day I found out, I had innocently been going through the dictionary when I made a shocking discovery, I was like WTF is a barrow?!

I was about 4 years old on a boat trip round a harbour when the tour guide pointed some big old ships moored at the side of the harbour explaining that the boats were "being run with just a Skeleton Crew". I turned to my dad an exclaimed,"Eugh, imagine having to step over all those dead bodies"

I saw a lot of Geico commercials. I thought that "15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance" meant that the longer you talked on the phone, the more money you would save. If you could keep them busy for 100 minutes, your insurance was free!

When I was young I wanted to be in the navy and so I asked my sister how I could get in the navy. She said that everyone in the nave ate cat food to stay strong. So she put some cat food in a little baggie and I ate several bags.

When I was very young, I wanted to be a doctor. That was until I had to wee-wee in a cup. I didn't realize they did lab tests with the urine. I thought the doctor had to drink the wee-wee. I thought right then and there, "No way do I want to be a doctor now."
