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.

For most of my life I spelled "father" as "farter". Why did no one correct me, especially my very own farter?!?

Not knowing the word "yield" as a child, I initially thought this was how one spelled "y'all". I figured the signs on the road were put there by the city to be welcoming to tourists, though it seemed like a poor strategy to me personally.

I used to think that there were 2 N's in the alphabet (X, Y, N, Z) and i wondered why they did that. A few years later, i discovered they said "and" not "N"

I used to think that when you wrote in cursive you didn't just join letters in a word together - I thought you could join all the words together too. I refused to believe my mother when she corrected me on that.

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 thought if a person writes WAY too much then he will never write ever again. I always save my handwriting power until needed. I even refused to write notes during classes then my teacher made me to write sentences on the board 100 times and I was SO worried that I will never write again from it!

My mother, who dropped out of school at 16 and who isn't terribly bright was helping me memorize my 'vowels' when I as a kid. She told me there was a rhyme to help me. I just needed to remember that the vowels were "A, E, I, O, U and sometimes Y and W." I learned them that way, then repeated that in class one day and got laughed at by everyone.

when my sister was around 7 she thought doing word search meant circling the letter of each word in the search, ending up with a whole bunch of circles in the word search

When I was little, my mom had this typewriter and I believed that I could just press random buttons and it would form a story. I would type a bunch of jibberish and then go to my mom and ask her what it meant she said nothing, I did it again and asked her what it meant: nothing, I figured out by about the fifteenth time that you had to try to write a story
