When we were at school one day in the 8th grade, one of my friends did one of the most funny moments i've seen.
the lesson was really boring untill my friend, REALLY entertained said. IT's CALLED ORGASM, what he though he said was Organisms. Kinda big misunderstanding. Our teacher were allmost lying on the floor laughing, we're still picking it on her!
i belived that when my mom said "i dont doubt it" that she ment "i dont belive you" and got very sad, and could even start to cry.
I heard this one from my friend recently. She has a five year old girl named Lola. Lola overheard my friend talking about her step daughter and how she had to go "away for awhile" because she had " a lot of issues". Lola promptly went upstairs where the stepdaughter was packing and when she was finished Lola told her not to forget to pack her issues.
I used to believe that "human beings" were called "human beans" and I always pictured big green beans getting on a plane!
I used to call a barbeque a "bag-of-poo" up untill I was 10. Still makes me smile when I say it :)
i used to think that you let the cat out of the bag meant that the cat had mis-behaved and was being punished in a bag. if you let it out, you had to be put in a bag. Thank God my mom told me about it before i reached 3rd GRade, my fellow Yankee-Noodles would of taken the micheal. Get over it, IM BRITISH!!!!!!!!!!!!
My niece was so proud of my new puppy and announced that he was "very HAVE." When I asked her what seh meant by that she said "You know, he is BEing very HAVE." Apparently she thought have was a verb and you had to be doing it.
I used to think that "diarrhea" was actually "ballerina"
My mom would always use old sayings but in front of them she add "You know what they say". I imagined "They" as several british policemen and ladies with eighties hair. I was a wierd kid......
I used to believe that "nuptial" was a naughty word. I thought it meant nipple. XD
Currently, in my 9th grade class, we are studying genes and the like in biology. Well, we briefly touched on it in 8th grade, and I remember reading the word alleles, but never hearing it said out loud. About last week, I heard my teacher say it, but to my surprise she said it 'al-LEELS'. I had assumed it was pronounced "a-LAY-lees". It gets worse, I tried to correct her.
This isn't mine, but my sister's. My sister is 5 and she recently saw the commercial for genital herpes. Well, I guess she figured "genital" was "genetic," because when my grandparents were over she proudly whispered to them: "I have genital dyslexia."
I used to believe people said "Happy New Year with Leaves" instead of "Happy New Years Eve." My family still reminds me of it over 30 years later. Every year.
at the age of 6 i believed that flush was a color
I used to believe that people were "human beans" instead of human beings.
I used to believe that humans were "human-beans" instead of "human-beings"!
One day I was in the car with my mom, and I said, "You know, I'm almost sixteen, you don't need to spell around me anymore." She didn't know what I was talking about. "I heard you on the phone, you were spelling a word, and I just wanted to let you know I know what you're spelling."
"What word did I spell?"
Knowing that I was about to say something stupid, she held in her laughs and said, "Okay, then what does that spell?"
"Obgyn," I said, pronouncing it ob-gin.
My mother once told my niece that she was a nighthawk when she was little, as the family was staying up late to watch movies. My niece thought she called her a "night hog", and to this day, persists on calling herself a "night hog" - she's 25 years old now and we STILL can't get her to believe the term is "nighthawk".
When I was little I would always get confused with the words homo and hobo. One day, while in NYC, I saw a man sleeping on a bench. To my mother's horror I exclaimed, "Look! A homo!" and recieved many puzzled stares. I haven't mixed them up since.
I used to believe that the word 'circumstances' was pronounced 'circus dancers'.
