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...

I used to believe that all land floated on water. After all, when you drill down into the ground, you get water (oil never crossed my mind), hence that belief.

My mom believed, when she was little, that we lived on the inside of the world. This belief stemmed from the fact that the sky is blue, and pictures of the Earth are mostly blue. So basically, she believed we were staring up at the Earth's shell.

When I was 7 or 8 I noticed those orange balls on some wires going across open fields and asked my aunt what they were, and because of what she told me I believed until I was 17 years old that they were basketballs kids had got stuck up there on the wire.

When I saw shadows of clouds on a tree-covered mountain, I thought the trees were a different color in that area, and the dark trees could move around.

I thought that we were all INSIDE the Earth and not ON it. The reason: in maps of the solar system, Earth was always blue, and since the sky is blue and it is a big dome (from our view on Earth), this theory made perfect sense to me.

When I was a kid riding the bus into school, I used to think that the hills (especially the humps on hills) were dinasaurs that were buried and they were just waitingto burst out and stomp around.

When I was a kid, I believed islands floated on the ocean like a boat. The first time my family ever drove to Statin Island in our car, I sat in the back seat terrified that we would sink at any moment or drift away from the mainland.

When I was little I believed mountains were made of ice. Like they were big pointy ice cubes...From a distance they had a blue sheen to the (from the trees) and they seem to be covered in snow which is cold...So I always thought they were made of ice..I had a hard time beleieving anybody when they told me otherwise!

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!

I used to believe that over the crown of each hill the seaside would appear before my eyes.
I still get a tingle in the tummy whenever I come to crown in the hill today, whether I'n near the coast or in the middle of the Pyrenees!

When I was about four, I thought that each country was a separate planet and that they were connected by long strips of water. When I drew a picture showing this, my mother disabused me.

I used to believe that you could see the Rocky Mountains from way, way far off on the plains -- like, say, from Kansas.
