I used to think that if anyone left the top off of a felt tip pen, then the pen would suffocate, so I'd go to great lengths to make sure everyone put the tops on within 2 minutes of using them!

When I was a little boy, I used to believe that when my parents were taking my nose in their hands and put their thumb between their fingers to make me believe they had taken it, it was really my nose. It often made me cry because I was afraid of losing my nose.

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.

When I was 5 I used to think the goal in football meant that the ball touched the goalpost. I would play this method for a long time.

When I was little, I was terrifed of joining the Bluebirds (Camp Fire Girls) or the Brownies; I took the names very literally, and I didn't want to turn into either one!

Have you heard of a game called hot potato? it's when you have a ball and you have to pretend it's a hot potato so you have to throw/catch it as quickly as possible. I thought that the ball/potato was red hot and would actually burn me so i got really scared whenever we played this game

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].

I used to play netball in school. One day my friend and I were duscussing why you don't see netball on TV. She told me it was because the ball went so fast the cameras wouldn't be able to keep up with it! Now I know why my dad found this so amusing when I told him!!

When I was small I used to believe that ships in bottles were actually built in the bottles with small tools.

The first time I saw how it was actually made I kind of laughed at myself saying "...haha...yeah of course....".

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.

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!

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 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.
