When I first learned the alphabet song, I didn't realize "l, m, n, o, p" were letters, I thought it was "elemenopee" - a decoration in the middle of the song.
I thought chore was spell like "choir"
I was raised in Florida, but my mom is from new england and they always drop "R's" and add them in different places when speaking. Like car is pronounced just "ca". Well, until I was 9 or so I thought that "idea" was actually "idear" with an "R" on the end. When my friend pointed out the truth I was so embarassed. My teachers must have thought I was a complete idiot. It was totally my mothers fault.
When reciting my ABC's i could never figure out which letter was "elemental pee." C'mon now, you sing LMNOP quickly and see what you come up with!
For the longest time, I thought the word "thorough" was just poeple spelling "through" incorrectly. I don't even know when I finally figured it out.
I used to belive the alphabet had the letter N twice and never understood why? One I was asked to write out the alphabet...L M N O...X Y N Z...you know X Y AND("n") Z. The teachers laughe, but I thought they were all stupid and ingnorant for not speaking properly.
I used to read the sign outside of convenient stores or gas stations that said "no loitering." I didn't know what loitering meant and would always laugh to myself because I thought that the people who made the sign spelled littering wrong.
When i was at school I just couldn't figure out why the letter "X" was mostly absent from words and if he did appear he was always at the end like in fox. I figured he was always late but so wanted to be first and cried when "F" and "O" beat him too it AGAIN. As a grown up I know that "X" has had more success than that since he often makes second place but so frustrated with never being first he has often struck off on his own and set up his own scheme of complementing words like ray, files and factor oh he is big and fireworky on the X factor but my generation (generation X) have tried but failed to put him in his proper place. Oh you are such a maverick; letter X!
since at least 1998, when i started playing starcraft, i would spell notice with a k...
well one day not too long ago my girlfriend pointed that out to me... and i was like nuh uh... no way...
well, my mom bein a scrabble freak and all, i just reached over and looked it up, and sure enough, i noticed that i had been spelling it wrong for over 6 years...
and to think... i graduated highschool last year and have just about finished a year of college
When I was small, my friend Melissa wrote her name in all capital letters, letting the center line of the A extend past the sides, making it look somewhat like a star missing the bottom two lines. She told me that only certain people could write their names like this, as it affected pronunciation, and I was devastated. For months I came home crying from daycare because I couldn't cross my A's like she had, and afterward, insisted being called 'Diamond' so that I could write my name with the amazing A's.
When I was between 3 and 4 and learing to write the letters of the alphabet and my name, I thought the letter E could be drawn with an infinite amount of horizontal lines.
W was called wubble-doo
Thought the whole alphabet was: A B C D E F G apple-juice X Y and Z
just like wendy down there me and my sister used to come up with genders for each letter of the alphabet..and we still remember them all!!!!
For some reason I used to see the letters of the alphabet as having genders.
A, D, H, K, M, N, O, P, Q, S, U, V, W, and Y are all girls.
B, C, E, F, G, I, J, L, R, T, X and Z are all boys.
What am I saying, "used to"? I still see them this way....
I thought 'Disney' was spelt 'Gisney' because of on TV, the D was all curly and looked more like a backwards G. I was never able to read it as a 'd' and the closest thing I could figure out was a 'G'.
I eventually figured out the font was just weird and it wasn't Gisney.
when i was in kidergarten we were learning to spell numbers and letters. I thought i did real good on the test, because my mom got called into met with the teacher. they had to expalin to me why i couldnt spell six "sex" as i thought was the right way to spell it
i thought read, as in 'i read' was spelled READE because of the way we spell breathe, and breath. i never got that word straight till i was 13...all the kids used to make funny of me and told my i should READ more...
In preschool, when someone corrected my spelling, I thought that they were just giving me another way to spell a word, and I could use either that way or my way. Some of these words were dolfin/dolphin, weel/wheel, and jun/june.
i used to spell eight "ate" cuz of the stuped: why was six afraid of seven, cuz seven ate(8) ten joke...
