Years ago at Disney World they had the ride 20,000 leagues under the sea. I believed that the octupus that was surrounding the sub was real. I only went on that one time! I was so tramatized to think that my parents would risk danger like that!!!!!!

In grade school, I thought a booster shot was where the doctor would place you in a booster seat, like the brown boxy plastic kind in restaurants, and then shoot you with a gun. It would hurt (just like my older sister said they did), but it would somehow be good for you, once you healed. Man, did doctor's appointments freak me out for the longest time.

When I was a boy there was a saying for hunters that went like this; "Never mix gunpowder and alchol." I thought for the longest time until the proper meaning was explained to me that hunters would take the bullets out of the casings and pour alchol into the gunpowder and replace the bullets to make a more powerful cartridge.

I used to be terrified of the dentist. Since I was repeatedly told NOT to swallow the mouthwash, I knew it was poison and I could die at any moment.

Every 2 years our family drives out to Yakima, Washingon for our family reunion. We always passed those bales of hay wrapped in white plastic. My grandma told us that it was the marshmallow field. For years I wondered why the marshmallow package didn't say "Grown in Yakima"

When I was in third grade I was going to go on a field trip to a planetarium. I was very disappointed and told my mother "Why do I have to go to a building to see plants?? I'm not going. I can see plants outside." This was FRIDAY, the NEXT FRIDAY I woke up and she made me go anyways. When I got to the plant-ittarium as I htought it was, I was pleasantly suprised, but mad because my mother hadn't explained the truth to me this WHOLE WEEK!

My Mother told me that if I didn't finish my food, (in a restaurant) that the waiter would charge us to take the leaft overs away. I was a fussy eater but beleived her and always cleared my plate. I don't have that problem now though, I'm always on the prowl for more food:)

When I was about 5 I was watching a game of Rugby Union with my grandfather. During the scrum I asked what they were doing and my grandfather replied that they were 'deciding who gets the ball'. I thought this meant that they were in the scrum saying "we should get the ball because..." and the other team were saying "no, we should get the ball because..." and that's how it was decided!

Whenever we drove by a field with hay bales covered with white tarps, I would squirm in my car seat and get all excited. Why? I thought they were giant marshmallows. And the ones not covered with tarps? Those were dipped in hot chocolate, of course.

My parents told me we were going to dinner and were going to see a floor show. I waited and waited and waited, but the floors didn't do anything except lay there. But the singers and dancers were great!

When i was a child i used to believe that my father owned all the cinemas in my city, because each time we went to the cinema we were never made to queue up. And i was very proud of my father. But when i understood that he just had a privilege card i was very disappointed

I was with my family on holidays, and I saw my aunt and uncle playing with a love-matic machine. You had 2 stick your finger in the device and it told you how hot you were (sexually speaking!!!). With my 5 yers old little silly mind, I thought that it was some kind of video games and I begged my mother to let me try it. I put my finger in the machine and I made it to the top of the sexiness scale, which was "sex bomb"! I was soooooooooooo happy to win that I started to yell in the street "I'm a sex bomb, I'm a sex bomb!!!"
Imagine my father's surprise when he, back home, got a phone call from his little kid, announcing proudly that he was sex bomb.

My dad had me so convinced that I was actually driving the boats at Disneyland (they're on tracks, of course), that I later had nightmares of crashing them.

To make matters worse, I confused one of those nightmares as being a real memory and thought that I really had crashed one. (It wasn't until I was a teenager that I realized I was wrong).

As a child, I thought Belle and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast used to live at the Lawrence University Memorial Chapel. Everytime I pass it, I still joke about Belle living there.

I lived in a seaside town and ofen walked with my grandparents along the cliff top and looked down at the beach and the road next to it.
My grandfather told me that the tiny cars I could see were models that were wound up at each end of the road and sent back again. I beleived this until I was about 9 or 10. I'm stupid

When I was a little boy of around 3, my family visited HMS Victory (Nelson's flag ship @ Trafalgar) in Portsmouth. Try as they might they could not get me to go aboard. I remember kicking and screaming in my effort to stop them, I thought we were going to sail away on this very old & unsafe looking ship. I did eventually did go onboard when my older sister told me that Nelson slept in a cot, just like me, naturally I had to see this cot for a grown man!

In elementary school, my mother was always asking me if i wanted to go to the school sock hop. Our school called their school dances sock hops, as in you are dancing and your feet in their socks are hopping around. I didn't get that. I always believed that they were playing sac racing games where you get in a potato sack and race people. I missed out on a lot.
