When i was first learning my alphabet, i thought that "l, m, n, o, p" was "elemental p". i always wondered what "elemental" meant and why it was used to describe the letter p.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT THIS!!! I used to believe that l-m-n-o was one letter also. I laughed when I saw that some people thought l-m-n-o-p was a letter! (with the p). What a weird thing!! It's that "darn" song we all learn. The "ABC" song needs to be re-written to clarify those letters!! HaHa!

I remeber believing that all letters could be "spelt" - if it made a sound, it could be spelt into a comeplete word - like "W" would be "double-yew" So I asked my mom how to spell "k". she replied "K". I got angry with her and said "No, how do you SPELL it?" She said, again "K" this argument went on for quite a while. ^_^

When I was about 7 or 8, we had to look up lists of words for homework. One of my words was 'infiltrate' and the definition I found was 'To enter secretly with an unfriendly purpose.' Somehow I misread it as 'To enter secretly with an unfriendly porpoise' and I wondered why somebody had made a word for that, as it couldn't be that common.

When I was young I believed that the word hypnotize, was actually spelt Hitlertize because I had only ever seen Nazis in my war comics trying to hypnotize people

I used to think 'elleminopee' was a letter of the alphabet. It came right after K and before Q.

(Think about it.)

My ex-husband and I share custody of our 11-year-old daughter, but the relationship is a difficult one. This past summer, my ex tried to stop me taking my daughter to visit her grandaprents abroad. I decided to be honest with my daughter and told her that her father was trying to stop the trip, but that I would try to talk him into it.

Later that week, I found some crumpled up pieces of paper in my daughter's room. Over and over she had written, "I hate my dad. He's a tourist." Flummoxed, I tried to work out what on earth she was talking about. Until it dawned on me: she meant 'terrorist'. I laughed so hard I fell over.

(Mind you, she wasn't far off the truth!)

My sister was learning the alphabet, which was pretty funny in itself, she'd go "A G K R Y V W, S T..." and then, somewhere in the middle of the mess, she'd scream "Elmo!" (lmno) It was SO funny!!!

I used to think that cursive writing was just a big scribble. I would draw a bunch of squiggles and lines and show it to my grandmother saying, "what's this say grandma?" She would pretend that cetain squiggles meant certain things.
I felt really smart!

i used to believe that cursive was another launguage, and that you learned how to read it when you grew up. I would always make squiggly lines on paper and ask my mom what it said.

when I was little I got paparazzi and pavarotti confused, I learned the truth when Princess Diana died, because they said they were speeding to get away from the paparazzi, and I couldn't understand why a fat itallian singer would be chasing them and why they'd have to speed away from him.

When I was little i thought that cursive was a grown-up language that was made up of just circles so when i wanted to send a parent a secret message i would put endless connected circles and got mad at my parent when they couldn't read it

Although I don't remember this, my mother swears that when she was teaching me the alphabet, she could not get me to say W, X, Y and Z...

I would say double-me, X, Y and Z.

She loves to bring this up at family gatherings just to anoy me.
