I used to to mix up masturbation with Mastacation, so while at at a family dinner party I decided to show off my vocababulary and knowledge of a cows' digestive system. I sarted talking and said," ...Oh yes, did you know that after MASTURBATING its food teh food has to travel through 4 chambers...." Everybdy started laughing and my mum was mortified.

She wasnt too happy with me later when it sparked some interesting questions from my younger siblings later on...

One day I said "No, I don't want to go to school right now I want to go to school at three o'clock" and my mother said "But them school will be boring!" But I didn't know what "boring" meant, so I thought it meant that it would be raining (as in "pouring")!

I used to think that "string him up" meant that you took someone high up on a tree and used string to tie them to it.

When I was younger I thought that "exceptional" and "acceptable" meant the same thing, so when I was young and I tried really hard and the teacher whose class I got an A in their class (yes, I was young) said I was an "exceptional" student I was thinking he menat acceptable and wondered why getting an A was only acceptable and how much you'd have to do to get this teacher's respect.

When I was about 6 I knew a mute girl at primary school. I used to believe that people had a limited number of words that they could pronounce in a lifetime and once you'd used them all up, then you became mute. From then on, I paid special attention not to waste words.

I used to think the word "procrastinate" meant to put off going to the toilet. I couldn't work out why we needed a word to describe that - why didn't people just go to the toilet when the needed to go?

.. that 'approximate' meant precisely, until I was 22 yrs when I was arguing with my friends about what it meant. Had to look in the dictionary to make sure after believing it for so many yrs.

Misconceptions, we have so many!

When I was about 5 or 6 I was really unaware of what exactly people were saying when they said "suit yourself". I believed that the correct way to say such a thing was "shoot yourself". So whenever my chums didn't want to do what I wanted to it was always "shoot yourself" that came out of my little mouth.

I was visiting my neice and she asked her mom why their dog was acting weird. Her mom told her that the dog was in heat. The next day I went over again and my niece opened the door and while waving her hand in front of her face like a fan siad, "I'm in heat, I'm sooo in heat." She thought "in heat" meant you were really hot.

As I was a quite chatty child (verbal-diarrohea) as my parents called it, I was told one day at about age six that you could only say 1000 words in your lifetime and then you wouldn't be able to talk anymore. I was fairly quiet for a short time after that!

I once heard my dad say, "She doesn't waste words." and believed you could run out. I did not talk much after that.

When my parents told me as a young child, that if I didn't slow down the speed of my speech, they would take me to ELOCUTION lessons, I believed that they would be taking me to be ELECTROCUTED stage by stage. I very quickly slowed down my talking.

When I was little, (about three years old), I used to play with my cousin a lot, who was about six years old at the time. We used to play in the grass and do a lot of somersaults, and came to the conclusion that a backward somersault should be called a winterpepper. (somersault = summersalt, so the opposite would be winterpepper.) It still makes sense...
