When I was little, my mother and I regularly went on holidays by train. We had to change trains at the next big station and often we had to wait quite some time, which we usually did in the tunnel below the platforms. My mother stayed with the luggage while I wandered around looking at the shops nearby. When I came too close to the back exit of the tunnel, my mother called me back. All I ever saw out there was a grey, bleak square, so I asked my mother what was there. She casually said “nothing“, meaning nothing interesting, but I thought there was literally NOTHING, just a grey mist that would make me disappear from existence if I came too close. For years I was afraid to go even near the fruit shop that was near this exit. First time I ever stepped out there was when I went to university in this town because the bus stop was one of the things that actually were out there. Felt a little weird at first but I got over it. Probanly helped that the fruit shop had turned into a bakery by then.

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.

The restaurant Arby's has a big cowboy hat as their logo. I thought this meant it was a restaurant only for cowboys, and that you wouldn't be allowed in if you weren't a cowboy.

I used to think that if you were still in the park when the gatekeeper was about to lock up in the evening, he would come along with a megaphone and tell everyone to leave, like when the pool attendants say everybody out when you go swimming.

As a kid, I thought "No Outlet" signs meant the houses past that point didn't have any electrical outlets.

I used to believe that speed humps were laying people, because in Colombia we call them "policias acostados" which roughly translates "laying policemen" so i used to think about that "people" staying all day laying in a street.

I used to think that if you walked on a sewer manhole cover and jumped on it, the lid would fall and you would fall in the dirty sewer. I was always afraid to walk on manhole covers because of this.
