Once, in first grade, I thought that I had to put a comma after each word or something terrible would happen. Like this:

My,name,is,Jessica,I,like,cats,and,ice,cream,

You get the idea.

I read alot as a child and there was one word that intrigued me: IDIOT.
For the longest while I pronounced it I-Dot. Somehow it did not occur to me that a word I used in everyday language spelt like that until about 12 years

In my early stages of reading, I thought the "Not a through street" street signs said "Not a tough street" and no bullies were allowed to live there.

When i was really small, i used to believe that if you wanted to put a word in the dictionary then you had to que up and then tell a man at a little table what the word was. If they liked it, your word got put in the dictionary, if not you got thrown out!

When I was very little, instead of singing "W, X, Y, and Z" I would sing, "W, X, Y, N, Z" It wasn't until I was learing to print the alphabet that I learned that there were not, in fact, two N's in the alphabet. Now that I have kids I try very hard to leave out the "and" when I sing the ABC's. Really, I think a pause is sufficient, don't you? OH, and while were on the subject, it wasn't until I was an adult that I realized that the ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Baa Baa Black Sheep were all set to the same tune.

When I was in kindergarten, we learned the vowels. I drifted off during class, not really paying attention. Afterwords, I came home and told my mom that the vowels were A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y and W. She told me W wasn't a vowel - I contested that, yes, it was because my teacher had told me so!! And I held to that belief that W was a vowel up until 5th grade...

When I was just learning to write I used to space the words so that there wasn't only one word on the line below. I was afraid that it might get lonely.

I remember asking my Mama if there were two "N"s in the alphabet: the first one falling between "M" and "O" and the other one between "Y" and "Z". Singing the alphabet, the "and" always sounded like an "N" to me :) Now I understand that there is only one!

A friend of mine only realized about a year ago (when she was 12) that a laptop computer was called that because it sits on your lap. And I didn't realize until 6th grade that the Beatles was spelled funny because it includes the word Beat...I just never thought about it...

So when I was little I used to think the alphabet song just named a lot of letters and I spent inordinate amounts of time trying to think of the letters that weren't in the song.

I was with my younger sister, who was 11 at the time. Just for fun, we were reading graffiti in a public bathroom. She read the messages aloud - "I love Robert", "Jackie was here", "KB+IH forever." Then we came across one that annouced, "I love porn." I was silently hoping she wouldn't notice it, but no such luck. My sister squinted at it thoughtfully, then declared, "They must've meant 'popcorn.'". I had to struggle not to laugh, but I didn't want to give it away that whoever wrote that definitely did NOT mean popcorn.

In preschool and kindergarten, the class would sing the alphabet together every morning. We'd say x, y, AND, Z, but my little ears thought we were saying n. It wasn't until recently that I realized why I was so confused.

I used to believe that organism and orgasm were variations of the same word. Then while reading aloud one day in Grade 7 science class, I replaced the word organism with the word orgasm. Most of the class, including the teacher began laughing. I was dumbfounded until about 1 year later.

i have always thought that letters have genders and personalities. for example, 'A' was very soft and kind and showed up when you needed her. 'B' was sad and masculine, because boy and blue start with B. the masculine letters are B, D, G, H, J, M, N, O, R, S, T, W, and X. the feminine ones are A, C, E, F, I, K, L, P, Q, U, V, Y, and Z.

dont ask how i came up with this

I used to think "Disney" was spelled D I S N E P. because they'd loop the "y" and it looked like a "p"!
