I thought this was a strict rule for about two years and I told her off for singing the theme tune to a TV show.

I used to believe that Popeye the Sailor lived inside the power transformer up on the telephone pole. This idea arose from hearing the made-up lyrics that the neighborhood kids sang to the musical theme of Popeye cartoons: "I'm Popeye the sailor man, I live in a GARBAGE CAN, I eat all the worms and I spit out the germs..." Not knowing what the power transformer was, but simply that it resembled the shape of a garbage can, it was obvious to me that Popeye lived inside of it.

When I was a child I always heard my friends talking about the film "Never Ending Story". I was convinced that was really without a end, so I spent whole afternoons searchingthis strange channel that was transmitting the same story from years until the eternity.

In the Slinky commercial jingle, " A slinky, a slinky, it's fun for a girl and a boy", my dad thought he could only play with a slinky with a girl because he thought it literally and he didn't have a sister, but he played with one anyways, even alone.
