For years, whenever I read about the Greeks forming the original alphabet in my grammar/English books, an odd scene popped up in my mind.

It involved 50-odd people in togas standing in a huge building. They'd divide into groups of two or three and go into seperate rooms. From there, they'd start sketching letters from the modern-day alphabet on pieces of paper, altering and changing them until they were satisfied (I always imagined that the people who came up with L were really lazy). I still think about this scene to this day.

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!
