Because of Beauty and the Beast, I thought that "provincial" meant "boring" because she sings, "I want much more than this provincial life!".

It also made me think "primeval" meant "prime evil", e.g really bad, because Belle uses that word to describe Gaston.

At 31 I moved from Italy to London, UK. I used to believe that the phrase "out of spit" was a particularly graphic and rather dramatic way of expressing one's animosity and vengeful intententions. Only 8 years later, after moving back to Italy, I eventually realized that one is supposed to say "out of spite".

There's a website called TV Tropes that has a trope called "Heroic BSoD", which means a hero has an emotional breakdown.

Because of this, I thought BSoD was a disorder, like OCD or PTSD, that meant you were prone to emotional breakdowns.

Later, I learnt that it's actually an abbreviation for Blue Screen of Death.
