When I was about 5 or so, I thought that someone had the special job of walking around the world and meticulously planting each seed of grass.

A few miles from my home there is a wind farm on the coast. When I asked what the large twirling things were, my Dad (who loved to kid us) said that they had been left there by a race of extinct giants, and that they were the giant equivalent of those plastic twirly things on sticks you get in seaside shops and put in the sand on the beach.

When I was small my Dad used to tell me that electricity pylons were in reality large animals that were resting in daylight but at night started to walk around. I was never quite sure whether to disbelieve him or not.

I though that behind mountains in my town there was a kind of heavenly place with water falls, riots of flowers, fruits -the most delicious in the world-and lovely animals from little birds to enormous elephants. I always kept my secret until now when I posted it.

When as a child I first saw a giant's grave and was told what it was I got utterly confused. I am German and the German word for "giant's grave" contains a rather rarely used synonym for giant ("Huene") which I didn't know then. As I couldn't make anything of it I thought I must have misheard and that surely it meant chickens as the plural of the German word for chicken ("Huehner") kinda sounds like "Huene" (giant). So in order to make sense of it all I imagined some ancient tribe so worshipping chicken that they burried them in huge fancy rock graves. Some grave for a chicken!

I remember thinking, for some strange reason, that a "sun set" was a day glo set of folding chairs and a card table. Unfortunately my internal monologue is no less confusing at 29...

my church told me that if you believe in God, you may move mountains. i used to sit in the backseat of my car andfocus really hard on the hills trying to make them move.

When I was about 5 my older sister told me that the earth moved and when people were walking they were really standing in the same spot and the earth was moving around them.

I could never understand how people could be walking in different directions at the same time, and what happened if you doubled back really quickly.

She denies all this of course.

When I was very young in Florida I believed there were still dinosaurs and that they ate the gray moss that was on all the trees in my neighborhood. The moss just looked ancient to me.

I worked as a camp counselor. One camper, age five, was kicking a large white rock sticking out of the ground for a while, so I asked him what was up with the rock. He said, "is this a dinosaur?"

I had resonantly learned that the Earth was round, so I thought an obvious consequence had to be that we would experience this: -“Ah, so that’s why there are hills – they are in fact the curving of the Earth!”

When I first learned about fossils in early grade school I thought I could go into the far back yard and carefully place a leaf on a rock and in a few days it would become a fossil.
