When I was about 5 years old we used to visit my dad's family in a province called "Michoacan". The word "Mi", in spanish, means "My", so I thought "Choacan" was owned by my father. Every summer I kept asking my dad to take us to his "Choacan"... Everybody laughed really hard, and it took several years for me to understand why, despite repeated attempts to explain it to me!
When I was little I thought that I had forgotten a letter of the alphabet somewhere between G and L and that unless I could remember what it was no one would be able to spell anymore.
I used to belive (in preschool) there were 2 N's in the alphabet. One in H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P and at the end Y,N,Z. I never understood why they put 2 N's in the alphabet, it seemed silly.
I used to believe that if you got all of the letters of a word such as "stop", it didn't matter what order they were in. So, on my first spelling test I was very upset with the teacher who marked my spelling of "ptso" wrong. I was convinced that all the letters were there, so I should get credit.
I used to believe as a child that a Communist and a Columnist were closely related, even one and the same.
One of my children used to believe that the Pulitzer Prize was spelled Pullet Surprise
I used to belive there were two N's in the alphabet, one after M and one before Z.
I used to believe that the letter P, in the alphabet song, was very special, because when you sung the song it sounded like you were supposed to say: ...H,I,J,K,"elemeno" P...(say it out loud). I thought the word "elemeno" meant something very special about the letter P. I later realized that I had been stringing the letters L,M,N and O into one sound...it's funny, cause it never occurred to me that those letters were not in my alphabet song, even though I knew they existed.
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
I used to think that when people sang the alphabet and got to T,U,V,W,X,Y and Z. i thought and was a letter untill i was about 6.
u know how at the end of the abcs it goes now i know MY abcs?well,i used to think u had to take all the letters and rearrange them to make your own.
When I was young I did a cooking class, where we had to decorate a book in which we wrote all our recipes. I labelled mine 'My Cock Book'.
LA was Ellay
When I was just learning the alphabet, I thought there was an actual way to spell every letter in the alphabet. For example I though "X" was actually spelled ex.
I used to believe it was bombfire. Not bonfire. Yeahhh, I found out when I was 14, and nobody even corrected me.
When I was in preschool I was terrified of the letter "Z". When we practiced writing our letters I would come to the end of the alphabet, and start crying. I was scared because I was convinced I didn't know how to write it.
i used to think there were two n's in the alphabet. the normal one plus one in between y and z because when you say y and z it sounds like y n z
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 very little, instead of singing "W, X, Y, and Z" I would sing, "W, X, Y, N, Z" It wasn't until I was learing to print the alphabet that I learned that there were not, in fact, two N's in the alphabet. Now that I have kids I try very hard to leave out the "and" when I sing the ABC's. Really, I think a pause is sufficient, don't you? OH, and while were on the subject, it wasn't until I was an adult that I realized that the ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Baa Baa Black Sheep were all set to the same tune.
I used to believe there were two "N"'s in the alphabet. As in... L, M, N, O, P..... and X, Y, N, Z.
