I used to think the old lady next door was a wicked witch who would scare me if I was in the garden alone, because she was a bit of an old dragon, and was too scared to go in the garden alone when she was there.

When I was little, my mother and I regularly went on holidays by train. We had to change trains at the next big station and often we had to wait quite some time, which we usually did in the tunnel below the platforms. My mother stayed with the luggage while I wandered around looking at the shops nearby. When I came too close to the back exit of the tunnel, my mother called me back. All I ever saw out there was a grey, bleak square, so I asked my mother what was there. She casually said “nothing“, meaning nothing interesting, but I thought there was literally NOTHING, just a grey mist that would make me disappear from existence if I came too close. For years I was afraid to go even near the fruit shop that was near this exit. First time I ever stepped out there was when I went to university in this town because the bus stop was one of the things that actually were out there. Felt a little weird at first but I got over it. Probanly helped that the fruit shop had turned into a bakery by then.

I had only seen depth markers that marked feet before, so when I went to a pool that had depth markers that said 3 FT 4 IN, I thought that the "4 IN" part meant there were four people in the pool. It didn't occur to me that I could see more than four people, and there was no way the depth markers could have counted how many people were in the pool anyway.
