I am flexible and always have been. So when I was younger I would hear my aunt say "I love gymnastics." And she was in like a club. And I though she would say "Nasty's" So I thought that was the actualy word. So I would be flipping and doing backflips (with no experience i might add) And I just loved it. So at 4 or 5th grade I said "Here let me show you guys my nasty's! And everyone looks horrified and ran away. So I ran after them screaming. "Nasty's are fuN! Whats a matter!?"

I was 14 until I realised that pipe-cleaners were for cleaning pipes. I had never seen them used for anything other than arts and crafts.
It wasn't until I saw them for sale in a tabaconist that I broke the word down and realised it was a "pipe" - "cleaner".

When I was 6 I saw brownies at my school open day doing cheerleading. I didn't really fancy doing it myself but my mum said brownies are fun. I asked my Mum if I could be a brownie and she told me boys go to cubs. I wrote in my jotter at school "when I am 7 I would like to go to cubs" with a picture of me cheerleading at the bottom; neither my classmates nor my teacher could figure this out!

I thought that if I jumped hard enough, I would eventually learn to fly. Many a bed and couch spring were worn out.

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.

When I did children's theatre we kids would always play with the scrims (the curtains on the side of the stage) Until one day a director told us that they now made special curtains that would stain your hands green forever. At 19 I still get nervous about touching those curtains.

When playing any kind of Solitaire card game, if there was a choice I couldn't put a heart on a spade, or a spade on a heart. It always had to be hearts + clubs, and spades + diamonds. This was because hearts were show-offs, and if they got put with a spade they would gloat to diamonds, who really secretly fancied spades and actually deserved to be with a spade because it (diamonds) was a nice unassuming suit. Spades were hunky, Clubs were just gross and smelly. Hearts only deserved to be with Clubs.

I know it's mad but I still do it now and I'm 28.

My husband and I were talking about getting our 4 year old into voice lessons. When we asked her what she thought she said she thought it would be cool to be able to talk like other people. Ha Ha! She thought voice lessons were given to be able to disguise your voice like other people, like Granny, Mommy, Daddy and to be able to cry just like her baby sister.

I believed that if you added yellow to green it became blue. I also believed that if you added even more yellow it would turn back to blue. I didn't realize this wasn't true until about 6 months ago

When I was little, I didn't realize that you needed a special material to make a parachute... I took a towel and put a corner between two toes on both of my feet, then I held the other two corners with my hands. I jumped off of one of the beds in my grandmother's house... and I landed flat on my stomach. SLAM!

I thought I could float like a skydiver :'(

When a kid I thought people were calling a basketball backboard the blackboard. So I always called it the blackboard but it just didn't make sense to me. No one ever corrected me.

I thought that gymnastics was the practice of putting on bandaids. Funny thing was, I was actually in gymnastics and had no idea what it was called.
