My family and I would go to the beach alot, meeting family and friends for picnics. On the other side of the sandy part was a grassy hill where picnic tables, playground equipment, etc was. There were signs along the beginning of the grassy part which said, "No Grills Beyond This Point." I thought it said "No GIRLS Beyond This Point", and I never did go up the hill!

You have to hold your breath when you go past a cemetery. Or a school. Or over a bridge. Especially over a bridge, or the car will be too heavy, and the bridge will collapse.

I used to believe that if you were in an elevator too long you would run out of air and die...this is all thanks to my wonderful sister! Therefore, when on vacation in Las Vegas Hotels, my mother would have one heck of a time getting me up to our room on the 25th floor!

I used to go to this one park all the time when I was a kid, & I thought my mom & I were the only people that knew about it. When my bestfriend told me she went to that park on the weekend, I said, "you KNOW about that place?" I was totally shocked!
When I was little I thought that when you went into an elevator that it was like a magic time machine. I didn't realize they went up and down. I thought that they magically turned the floor outside into another place.

My little sister used to be obsessed with the "Land Before Time" videos, where all these dinosaurs live in a place called the Great Valley. In one movie some migrating dinosaurs came and then had to leave, and said they had to move on to the next valley. Well, we were in Utah, and all the cities there are in valleys. We were entering the Salt Lake Valley when my sister yelled out "It's the Great Valley!" We thought that was pretty funny. But then when we went to a different valley she sort of gasped and said "It's the Next Valley!"

When I was younger, all my friends went away during the summer on holiday. I asked my parents, tearfully, why everyone else got to go on holiday and not I. My mother, guilt-ridden as she was, said that we were just about to leave on "holiday" and would I like to come with her. Perking up instantly, I said yes.
Well, it turned out that the "holiday" was just the car wash at the gas station, but being 5, I had a very sketchy idea of a holiday anyway. I was delighted by my grand vacation, and for years afterward was reported to say that my favorite holiday was "the car wash".
When my brother were small( 4 and 5), our parents would talk about taking a couple of drives around the block. My brother and I were confused when we didn't see any blocks. We thought that our parents meant the kind of blocks that kids play with
