I used to believe that you spelled "ESSAY" like "SA" and "EASY" like "EZ".
When I was in kindergarten my teacher taught us how to spell bird. She said B-I-R-D but the I is silent. So I went home and told my family " guys I learned how to spell bird! B-R-D!" No my aunt said its B-I-R-D no no I replied the I is silent
I used to believe that all numbers and letters had gender, ACGKNPQRSZ were female and the rest male. Girls could only have names that started with those letters and someone named Barbara or somethign just had parenst that messed up
when i was learning the alphabet i used to think it went like : a b c d e f g h i j k ello mello p q r s ...and so on
Since people say "My a-b-c's" i thought everyone had their own a-b-c's
I used to beileve that duct tape was Duck tape, and for awhile I guess I thought it came from ducks....but I'm not sure (I was shocked that for so long I thought it was Duck...)
For most of my life I spelled "father" as "farter". Why did no one correct me, especially my very own farter?!?
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 used to beleive the alphebet went .....xyNz. and i replace the "and" for the letter"n", i argued with my mom for a long time
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!
I thought my dad invented the "radio alphabet" and it was something only he knew about because I'd only ever heard him use it
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"
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.
I used to mix up the words orgasm and organism.So once , on vacation I felt like writing some sort of a horrortale.I started this story with "I went deeper into the woods , and all of a sudden an orgasm appeared from behind a tree...".I didn't realise why my mother started laughing all at once...: )
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
When I was three or four I believed that letters and numbers were either boys or girls. The letters A, B, H, K, M, N, P, Q, R, U, V, W, and Y are girl letters whereas C, D, E, F, G, I, J, L, O, S, T, and Z were boy letters. X always kind of tricked me (ironic considering our chromosomes). 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 are boys and 4, 6, 8, and 9 are girls. I can remember to this day (20 years later!) exactly what letters and numbers are the girls and which ones are the boys!
I used to think "fonix" was a dangerous drug that would mess up your spelling because a kid at my school always wore one of those humours "hukt awn fonix wurkt fer mi" t-shirts
