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 that it wasn't wind that made the tops of trees move.. It was dinosaurs.

When I was in kindergarten, I was convinced I could dig my way out of a sandbox and off to China.
I once thought a vent in my hotel room led down to the center of the earth.
When i was little, i use to believe that mountains where actually dead dinosaurs covered in dirt.
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.
when i was little i was convinced that rocks grew, i had seen big boulders and little pebbles so it made sense that the boulders were grown up rocks and the pebbles were baby rocks i would ask my mom if rocks grew she told me no but i thought she was lying
i used to believe the sunset was better in California cause it was closer to the sun
I used to believe that the hills were buried dinosaurs.
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.
When I was little, I used to believe that the tops of trees touched the sky.
