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.

When I was about 4-5 years old, I thought that since my house was # 65, I could walk to just past house # 1 and I'd be at the end of the world.

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!

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!

When I was little and my parents took me to the movie theater, I used to think that they had numerous microwaves behind the counter to make the popcorn as you ordered it!

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.

I used to believe that carnival rides at the fair were like tulips or daffodils in that they grew up from the ground in the days before the fair and when it was over they sunk back into the ground, dormant until next year.

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!"

Halloween was so much fun as a kid. I used to believe that if I started yelling Trick-or-Treat while I was running for the house, I could get the candy person to the door faster. It usually worked too. I always came home with a lot more candy than my friends.

I used to believe that the tall Marriott hotel by our shopping mall was actually Hollywood and each room was a different actors home. Me and my sister would point to the different windows and say " oh that's Gingers house from Gilligans Island!"

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

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".

I used to believe that bridges were actually built before the river came. I thought that there were mystics who could predict were the river would flow!

I went to Chuckee Cheeses when I was five with my mom and little sis and the man at the front stamped our hands. I asked why and mom explained we have to have the same stamp or we cant leave together. Well I was terrified of getting the wrong stamp and being left behind and I would cry so much when me and my sis got invited to parties there. I was sure we would never come home again.
