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.

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.

I used to go to a pool where there was a sign that said "Shower before entering pool." Some letters fell off so it said "Shower bef", so I thought another name for the pool was the "shower bef". My dad played along with it and asked if I wanted to go to the baby pool or the shower bef.
