When I was a child I used to believe that when I slept in the car, if I leaned on the door, the door would break and I would fall down the road and die.

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.

As a preteen, I believed that a strip club was where patrons actually stripped naked and pole danced themselves, rather than merely watching professional strippers do so.

One day when I was nine or ten, my older brother and I were walking on the beach and the beach was filled with condominiums, he pointed at the condominiums and told me that they are condoms and that condom was short for condominium. At the time, I didn't know what a condom actually was but I did know exactly where babies come from.
