I thought the C-word was crap.
I used to believe that "foofa" was the F-word in Spanish.
Not me but my classmate. He thought that stereotyping was listening to the stereo.
When people used the word "stationary" to mean staying still, I thought they were talking about the stuff you write with.
i used to think the New York accent was the accent all old people had because as a child all the old people I knew (grandparents, great grandma, great aunts, uncles, etc) had thick NY accents. Also that when you become old you automatically develop a New York accent as like a rite of passage ...I was a strange child
I thought "incessantly" meant "often and annoyingly".
Everybody described the conscience as a "little voice in your head", so I thought that *all* thoughts were from the conscience-- essentially, I mixed the conscience up with the internal monologue.
I had (and still have) a lot of random thoughts, and when I was a kid, I was often told that I was very well-mannered for my age, so I thought that because I was so polite, my conscience was "bored" and just said random stuff.
I used to get "jaw" confused with "palm."
When I was about twelve or thirteen, my mother was reading me The Odyssey, and at one point, Queen Penelope has these men who want to marry her because they think Odysseus is dead, and they say, "We'll draw lots". I didn't know what that meant, so I thought it meant they'd draw (as in sketch) a lot of Odysseuses.
I used to think that clinical depression was called "cynical" depression.
