i used to spell eight "ate" cuz of the stuped: why was six afraid of seven, cuz seven ate(8) ten joke...
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
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.
Before i could write i thought that writing was just scribbles that i diddn't know how to read yet. I would draw pages and pages of squiggly lines and give it to mum and ask her to read out to me what i had written. She gave up trying to explain and humoured me.
When I was very small I didn't grasp the concept of words and spelling. I used to write all the letters I knew in groups of four or five and ask my mom what the words slept. She would isnist I hadn't spelt anything and I could never understand why.
i used to believe that letters were either happy or mad like the A was mad and the S was happy.
When I was six, I was playing DJ on tape. My uncle came in and started acting like a goofball doing voices and stuff like that. He was acting like the guy that does the station ID, and he said in a deep voice, "w-e-r-d, weird."
I actually thought that was the correct way to spell it until I was in third grade and saw weird on a spelling lesson and the teacher pronounced it.
First off, My name is Brian, and when my mom would write my name, I always thought the "a" was a captial "Q". So for my first few years of spelling, I would write BRIQN. And everybody though it was just a lower-case "a".
And at the time, my dad worked at a local Imo's, so my picture of my name is still hanging on the wall, for all to see.
For some reason I thought the "elapsed time" said "applaused time" because people applauded about how fast it was!
I used to believe that the word "world" was spelled and pronounced "waild". I may have misheard it but caught the meaning. I was only corrected when I asked if the road we lived on was connected to all the other roads in the waild.
I had never seen a Play-Doh box, so I used to believe "Play-Doh" was spelled "plato".
I used to think there were two of the letter "n" in the alphabet. When you are taught the alphabet, you go by the sound. So when you sing the abc song there's "l,m,n,o,p" then you get to "x,y,and z". Well, I always thought people were saying, "x,y,n,z". It took me awhile to figure that one out.
When I went to kindergarten, I was very insistent that the alphabet was ..H,I,J,K,elemental P..
When I was younger I kept confusing the company BFI with FBI.
When I was 3 years old, my father was telling me about the difference between the physical and the spiritual. I was just learning to read and spell at the time but wasn't very good yet and I asked him if physical was spelled "f i s c a l". He then had to explain to me what fiscal meant.
i had heard the word naive before and knew what it meant, but whenever i saw it written i thought it was a completley different word, pronounced like 'nave'. i beleived this for a very long time, until finally i was reading or something and suddenly it clicked that it was the same word! sadly that was only about a month ago
I used to think that an explanation mark only had a dot at the bottem because they were normally at the end of a sentence and it was the full stop. If there was an explanation mark in the middle of a sentence, it would just be the stick.
When I was younger I thought that the word 'satin' was 'satan'. My entire family is made up of Chirstians so I was very confused as to why people bought things that had 'satan' in them. Who labels that satan is in a product anyway?! I believed this until I was about 7 and I miss read it to my grandmother who laughed and told me what it really was.
For some reason, when in Grade 4, i was near one of the kindergarden classrooms and absentmindedly started counting the number of alphabets as the kids were learning the letters loud.. "a,b,c,d...x,y,and,z"..
I was shellshocked to see my 27th finger come up and was deeply upset about not knowing all the alphabets. After several hours of anguish, i fished out the missing link.
In preschool and kindergarten, the class would sing the alphabet together every morning. We'd say x, y, AND, Z, but my little ears thought we were saying n. It wasn't until recently that I realized why I was so confused.
