This isn't me, but my mother. As a kid, she apparently thought that if you saw the street lamps turning off, it was lucky.

There was this one area of the local pool that I thought was called the "Disney Area". Why? Because I thought it looked like Mickey Mouse's head.

When I was about five or six, my mother and I got into a taxicab and the driver said, "Where do you want to go?".
I thought he was talking in general, so I said, "New York!"
Note: I was living in England at the time.

Once when I was little I heard loud electronic music coming from outside. At first I thought it was an ice cream truck but then a voice called out "Hello!" So then I thought it was someone's noisy toy. My mom correctly identified it as an ice cream truck but I thought, "Since when do ice cream trucks have a voice saying 'hello'?"

I used to believe that if I learned how to be a tight-rope walker I could travel all over town by walking along the power lines up on the telephone poles.

To leave the town in which I grew up you could drive through a tunnel that crossed beneath an estuary, and then came out in the adjacent town. During one of my earliest memories of going through that tunnel, my dad was driving, and as we reached the halfway mark through the tunnel he said, "We're driving under water right now." I thought it was amazing that we didn't have to hold our breath! Also, I remember that there were maintenance doors in the sides of the tunnel, and I imagined that if you opened one of those doors you would see an underwater scene with fish swimming by. Somehow in my imagination, the water didn't just come rushing in through the door and flooding the tunnel.
