I didn't used to think that Mount Rushmore was a real place because I could never understand how the rocks could see those men and be able to shape into something that looked like them. I figured somebody just made up Mount Rushmore and it turned into the biggest, mostly widely-believed lie.

When I was little I used to lay on the ground and look up at the sky. I swore I could see the earth turning, because I thought clouds were stationery so the movement I was seeing must be the earth spinning slowly.

I used to believe the earth was a giant sphere that we lived inside of, sort of like a snow-globe. I thought if I walked to the edge of the ground, I would be able to touch the sky.

When I was little, we were driving through the Appalachian Mountains. My mom referred to a mountain we passed as a "hill" because she was from Colorado and used to the Rocky Mountains. For years, I thought I'd seen a hill that reached the clouds.

I used to think that piles of rocks that farmers would pick out of fields were actually for a 'rock farm'. You would plant sand in the ground and you would get rocks in a few years!

When I was in first grade, I got a book about what would happen if you were able to dig through the earth. It explained that the earth had a "thin crust" and below it was many different layers of rock. My sister and I, not realizing that the "thin crust" was still several hundred feet thick, decided to dig to the rock layer. Since we lived in New England, about two inches into digging we hit a large rock. We decided that this was the rock layer and were very pleased with ourselves.

Having grown up in the city, I thought that pavement was the natural state of the world, that lawns were where the cement had been removed, and that curbs were how deep the soil was.
