I thought that if you held a buttercup to your face and it only reflected on your chin softly, it meant you only liked butter a little bit.

I never knew that the yellow dandelion and the white one with all of the fluffy seeds were the same plant. I was about ten, and I wanted to make dandelion salad like from the Hunger Games, but my mom said that the fertilizer wouldn't be a good thing. So, she suggested blowing the seeds and growing that. Waaaaaaait a minute... What?

As a child there was a Muller corner advert on the UK television in which a pretty woman picked a yogurt pot from her own yogurt tree before she ate it. I'm unsure how I got the idea that this was fact, but on a few occasions my parents allowed me to bury my empty yogurt pots in our back garden due to my childish desire to grow my own yogurt tree... Biggest disappointment of my childhood

Whenever I was told paper was made from trees, I thought it was made with the leaves and not the wood. I agreed with the whole Save Trees! philosophy, but I secretly thought "What's the big deal, if leaves grow back anyways?"
It was until I was like 12 I understood paper was made with wood.
