I used to think that fetish meant phobia. I was afraid of bare feet and when i told people i had a feet fetish, they would take their shoes off and stick their feet in my face which freaked me out. I just thought that they did that to scare me, because i didn't know what a fetish was. That was in 3rd grade, when i didn't know that much about fetishes

I used to believe that a germaphobe was a "germanphobe", someone who is scared of Germans. I overheard a conversation between my mom and someone on the phone and she said "germaphobe". I would wonder why someone would be scared of Germans, maybe because of their accent or something. I dunno

I have a friend whose son knows that eight is a number and ate is the past tense of eat. Because of this, he thinks that as well as being able to say that you ate something, you can also say that you sevened it, or sixed it, and so on. (Maybe he thinks that refers to the number of times you chew each mouthful before swallowing it, in which case if you say you oned it then presumably you gulped it down in one go without chewing it first!)

I used to believe that "perhaps" was only used when you were tired of saying "maybe", instead of just being an alternative word, and I asked people who said it if they were tired of saying "maybe". I had a children's dictionary that explained that they meant the same thing by saying "'Perhaps' is a word you use when you are tired of saying 'maybe'".

Until about my freshman year in high school, I always heard about mostly celeberties being "incognito" but i always thought they were in Cognito like as a place. I thought Cognito was some tropical island somewhere.

I thought the word "current" only applied to electricity. One day when I was maybe 6 or 7, I went on a nature hike, and the guide started talking about the current of a stream that was flowing through the park. I concluded that the stream must have had electric eels in it.

When they had us sing "America the Beautiful" in school, I thought the words were,
"In the Donzer Lee-light."
Instead of "In the dawns early light"

I discovered that I was wrong when I read one of the Ramona books by Beverley Cleary, in which Ramona makes the same mistake.
Hehe
