For some reason, I used to believe the sky was the beach (the clouds were the sand and the blue part was the ocean- I'm not sure what I thought about cloudy days)

When I was about five or six years old, I believed the sea was a man made phenomenon. I imagined that men actually dug the sea many years ago like that was their career.

There's a restaurant in the town I live in called Cafe Aroma. For a while now, there's been a drawing on the special-of-the-day chalk board. When I was about seven or eight, my mom caught me staring for a really long time at the chalk board and asked why I found it so interesting. I responded with, "I was looking at the chalkboard. Those are such pretty mountains!" That's when she told me that they weren't mountains. I looked back and, a couple minutes later I realized she was right. The drawing is of a naked lady laying down. She told me that it had been modeled after the mountains nearby that looked like a lady lying down. Since then, until I was about twelve, I thought that mountains were really just giant women who had laid down to sleep, but died because people started tearing them apart to make towns on them and I frequently looked for their faces. I was later told the differences and similarities between mountains and women.

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!
