I used to believe that when the local Denny's Diner said, "Open 24 Hours" that meant that the waiters all lived at Denny's, without a day off, and only saw family when the family came to Denny's to eat.

When I was little, we once drove past a Jack in The Box and my sister told me that at exactly noon, Jack((you knwo the guy with the white face and the yellow hat?)) would pop out of the box on top of the big tall sign. I believed her til I was about 8 to 10 years old.

I used to believe that homeless people would catch germs from the unhygienic conditions, and that was why they used to have to get a big bottle of medicine from the chemists and take a big gulp straight out of it. I thought it must have been quick-acting too because they always looked as though they felt a lot better soon afterwards!

My brother told me that Botts Dots, the raised bumps that separate lanes on the highway, were there so that the blind could drive. I couldn't figure out how blind people would know when to stop because they couldn't see stop signs or traffic signals. It was probably 2 or 3 years later when I realized that my mom just couldn't drive in the lane steadily.

When I was young, my mother and I lived in a town home. My mother had the bedroom downstairs, and I had the upstairs room that was more like a loft. It only had a half-wall and I could look down and see the rest of the house. Well, across the way was a long, narrow window that stretched across the opposite wall with a view of a fairly busy street (I don't remember if it was a highway of some sort or not). But when I was little I always thought that the world stopped at a certain time. And by that I mean, I thought everyone went to bed at a certain time. I thought that if I stayed up long enough, the cars would stop driving by because everyone would be at home and in bed. I would climb on my bed and rest my head on the half-wall behind it and watch the cars waiting for them to stop. Needless to say, that never happened, and I always fell asleep waiting for it to. My young mind just couldn't conceive the idea that people were up at all hours of the night and morning.

I used to think that the handy-cap parking spaces in parking lots were for reserved for people who were only going into the building to use the bathroom, since the pictures looked like someone sitting on a toilet. I figured that the parking spaces were so close the the doors so that people could get to the bathroom faster.

In the inner city, one of the main streets I saw was named 'Gay Street.' I thought that many gay men were living along the street.

When I was 5 I always used to say sorry to lamp posts, when I walked into them. That should have taught me to look where I was going, but still, at the age of 14, I still walk into things.
