When I was about 4, my mother and I were shopping at Walmart when my eye caught a bag of Cotton in the Arts and Crafts section. I begged my mother to buy me this big bag of cotton, and she felt she could possibly use it in blanket or some other craft.
When we were loading the bags into van, I grabbed the bag of cotton and ripped it open, and quickly started putting the cotton in my mouth.
I was shocked and extremely disapointed to find out that it wasn't Cotton candy.
My mother gave me a strange look and I had lost my appetite for cotton candy.

When I was younger, I really loved this Loony Toons movie that had Michael Jordan in it. In the movie, the Loony Toons characters come together to form a basketball team. Lola Bunny was my favorite Loony Toon. So when I was little, I would steal my older brother's Bulls jersey and wear it around the house. I would ask 'Do i look like lola bunny?' and everyone would say 'No' but then i would scream because i thought i looked like her.

I used to think that "joy riding" was when you tied a rope to the back of a car and hung on to it wearing roller skates while someone drove it up the motorway. It sounded fun!

whenever i would color a picture of a person i thought once i colored that part of them it came to life. So i always made sure to color their mouth and eyes first so they could see and breath.

When I was around the age of 2 I used to follow the repair man in the front yard. I would imitate his tool belt by putting sticks in my diaper walking around wherever he went.

when I was little I joined the brownies group and when I got there I looked around and asked the leader were are the brownies she said scattered through out the camp so I went in search of brownies I found about ten girls but no brownies so I went up to the leader and said I mean the chocolate kind she pointed to a tent with a lable that said African american children I was very confused about this until I found out there were no actual edible brownies its just what the camp was called.

I used to believe that if you color with a black crayon on a piece of paper over and over again that it would turn to gold.

When I was a kid I would always complain to my mom that I was bored - she was pretty good at coming up with fun things to do but if she couldn't think of anything she used to tell me to use my imagination. I had no idea what an imagination was - I don't know why I didn't ask. For some reason I came to believe that my imagination was the colours and lights I saw if I closed my eyes and pressed on my eyeballs. Needless to say, I didn't have a very good opinion of imagination and couldn't understand why my mom was suggesting this to me as a form of entertainment.

Pokemon was my first video Game, so I was into Role Playing Games at an early age. Well once, I was playing a game called "Lunar: Silver Star Story" and one of the weapons was called a Bastard. [I learned later that it's a type of two handed sword.] When I saw it, I flipped out that the game had cursing in it [it was an E-rated game].

When I was about four, my mom got invited over at my neighbours house for coffee, and I went with her. The neighbour had dozens of spanish dolls on display in her living room. I was fascinated by them and got really excited when my mom told me she collected them as a hobby. I decided to become a collector aswell, and immediately went outside on the street to spot some dolls lying on the ground! After looking very long and hard, I started wondering why I couldn't "collect" a single doll when the neighbour had so many, and figured there must be something wrong with me.

My grandpa told my mom and aunt that you could call fish when you were fishing. So they would call fishes all day long while he fished. If they did not catch any fish that day it was there fault.

When I was about 8 I joined the new brownies that had been set up. Me and a few other people were going to be the first people to get enrolled there. I told this to a friend who went to another brownies and had been there for a long time and she said that being enrolled was really scary. For a while after I, for some strange reason, imagined that being enrolled consisted of being rolled up into a rug, and then the BrownOwl shook it so you rolled out. As you rolled a long the floor to the other side of the hall you would shout your brownie promice in fear.
Luckily it was nothing like that.

my dad told me that ballet dancers had their toes removed and blocks of wood nailed to the ends of their feet so they could stay upright on the points of their feet

When I was fairly young, my sister and I were playing a game with a friend. We were pretending to be spies or something of the sort and were coming up with some pretty ingenious ways to eradicate evil-doers. One of these methods involved us skidding around the drive as we pretended to dice up the bad guys with our imaginary "roller blades" after incapacitating them.
As a six year old who only ever used traditional skates, I never questioned the logic behind why we all thought the wheels on roller "blades" were actual "blades", thus capable of being used in a lethal manner.

You know how construction paper packages have pictures of various animals or fruits, I suppose for art ideas, on the front of them? I saw grapes on the front of one and thought that meant the paper was flavored, for example, red was cherry and green was watermelon. Let's just say I learned the hard way...

When I was eleven years old, I used to play soccer in the park with my friends. I had a lot of fun with them. I used to do my homework in my father's office, because there was no one in my house.
