When I was a kid, my mom was the first to tell me about the "ball drop" in New York on New Year's Eve. I'd never seen the ball drop before, so I assumed it meant that someone standing on the roof of a building in Times Square would throw the ball into the crowd below! I was watching TV before the ball drop started and they mentioned that the ball weighed over 10,000 pounds. I was alarmed, because throwing something that size into a crowd would kill people! Luckily, my preconceptions were wrong. There is no throwing, and the "drop" is actually a controlled descent.

The TV guide showed "To Be Announced" for the hour when my favorite show came on. I used to believe that "To Be Announced" was just another name for that show, and got excited when I saw it in other places.

When I was young (3-5) I thought that if you broke the tv screen that you could go and live in the movie. One time I decided I wanted to live in Charlie and the chocolate factory (old one lt was about 2003) I almost did it to with a rock...I'm glad I didn't do it and I still don't know why I thought that

When I was a small girl the old "batman" series was on TV.there was one episode in which one of the villans abducted Batman ib order to remove his "cowl" (the part of his costume that covered his face) and I thought they said his "cow" and I thought that was another word for face.The next day my dad scratched his cheek so I asked him if he had hurt his cow, thinking how sophisticated I sounded.He gave me a blank look and after many questions he figured out what was going on and "cow" for face becane a running joke in my family all thanks to me.

My mom took a Balkan folkdancing class when I was around 6.we watched Star Trek a lot so I got mixed up and thought she had said Vulcan folkdancing. Mom said the dancing was very energetic so I always imagined those stoic Vulcans really chtting loose for once Mr Spock leaping high in the air and clicking his heels!

I picked up the words from a science show on TV, something like, "atoms are alive and everything is made up of atoms". From there my mind (age 5) decided all things, from rocks to trees, to my stuffed animals and Raggedy Ann, are alive (have spirits and feelings). And honestly, in a way, I really never lost that belief!

I used to think that the best newsman would become president. Why else would adults watch the news so carefully?

When I was around 4, I used to believe that when the TV was off, it was the people in it that were watching us in the house. So when I was walking in front of the switched off TV set, I always had my best behavior, going as far as doing some little chores, like straightening out the edges of the rug in the living room.

I used to believe that a VCR tape would be destroyed if it was left to run its full length. Every time the credits begin to roll I freaked out because I didn't want my favorite tapes to be ruined.

I used to believe the laugh track on sitcoms were other people watching the shows in their houses and laughing at the jokes. I would laugh really loudly so they could hear me too.

I use to believe when you would watch a comedy t.v. sitcom and heard the people laughing through the t.v. They could hear me back if i went to the tv and laughed into it.

I used to believe that there were little people inside the TV and everybody was all squished in there and whenever a new show came on or the channel was changed, they quickly went up to the front of the TV.

I used to think that when you turned on the TV you were able to pick a family you wanted to watch. I thought that someone somewhere could be watching me through their TV. I was amazed that the TV in other peoples homes showed the same thing our TV did.

I used to believe tiny people lived in the television and could not understand how they could move so quickly when I changed the channel.
