i used to belive that 1 to 10 were the only numbers and all others were made up.....
i uase to write my #s like 3d 3d1 3d2 5d4 etc!
Numbers went up to 100 then restarted at zero.
When I was younger, I used to believe that you couldn't count backwards unless you said "Zero, Blast Off!" at the end.
when i was little (about 5) i could count fine up to 25 but then i would count 26, 27 , 28 ,29, saturday, saturday1, saturday2....
i have no idea why but my parents still joke about it. ive actually turned out gud at maths(im 13 now)
I used to think that "a couple" meant any small amount, such as 3 or 5. My mom once corrected me and said that "a couple" always meant 2, and that if I meant some other small number that I should say "a few" instead.
I told her that she must have it backwards, and that "a few" must mean 2, because "few" and "two" rhyme.
I used to believe that it would take forever to count to 100
After I heard the joke "Why was 6 mad at 7? Beause 7 8 9 (seven ate nine)" I thought 7 was the meanest number ever and 9 became my favorite number because I felt bad for it.
That 1/4 was bigger than 1/2
i used to believe that in math two numbers added together they would equalthose two numbers together ex. 6+3=63
I can remember when I was little, I figured out how to count up to very large numbers for the first time. I was in the yard, and I counted outloud... I counted to fif-dee, then six-dee, then seven-dee, then eight-dee and finally nine-de,e and I kept going... nine-dee seven, nine-dee eight, nine-dee nine and finally --- TEN-dee! Ten-dee one, ten-dee two... until I got to ELEVEN-dee, then TWELVE-dee.
I was so proud, that after I got it down I did it in front of my mother, who then kindly corrected me, and explained that after nine-dee nine came one hundred.
I don't know how old I was, but the memory is as clear as a bell.
I always thought that the numbr 100 was the biggest number and that it was the last one. So, when I knew all my numbers up to 100, and then was informed that I was sadly mistaken, I thought I will never memorize all those numbers. It would take years.
i guess im not the only one who made personalities for numbers, here i thought i had a problem or something. I always thought 9 was mean, because when you add 5 and 9 you get 14 instead of 15....yeah...and i always thought that the adding was a way of numbers helping other numbers, and subtracting was like numbers fighting( 6 says to nine "i dont like you, were not 15 anymore!!") i was so messed when multiplying and dividing came along.
When I was 4 years old my brother told me that when you count backwards, you don't count the number 4. I think I believed him.
I used to believe that if you counted up to any number above thirty or forty, it could be 100 at any given time. Like: "38... 39... 40... 41... ONE HUNDRED HERE I COME!!!"
I thought to count to one thousand you did 1-100, then 100-199, then came 1,000.
When I was about 4 I decided that if you were born in a bigger year, that meant you were older. So if I was born in 1965, that meant I was older than someone born in 1964. Because 65 is bigger than 64. Just like being 4 years old was bigger than being 3 years old.
When I was learning to count, I always left out 7. Then, when I finally got used to it being between 6 & 8, I started to leave out 17... I always believed that it couldn't be a proper number because it always had one more syllable than those around it.
when i was little i used to believe that the number six was the same as nine, cuz if you turned 6 upsidedown you would get 9, and vice versa. so whenever i would count to ten i would either go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8.... etc
or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 !
I used to believe that numbers had personalities.
1- msart guy who was married to 2
2- nice woman married to 1 who was secreytly in love with8, who was a bad number
5-evil but stupid and in love with number six
6- sorta evil but very beautiful
7- evil, in love with six, was very handsome and thats why six liked him
8- clumsy but evil and in love with 2
9- servant of the wise and good 10, but secretly plotting to overthrow him.
10-nice and wise, the best of them all and the most powerful
