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.

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'?"
