When I was little I used to believe that the green electricity substation boxes that you sometimes see on street corners were "where they keep all the dead mice!" When asked why I thought that I said "Well they've got to put them somewhere!"

When I was young, I used to think that there were little men who lived in the traffic lights and had to manually change the lights so people knew when to go and stop. One little man would flip the green switch, one the yellow, and one the red!

To keep us out of the empty corn silos when we lived in the country, my Mom would tell us that if we stepped inside, the ground would fall away from us. I still feel strange if I go near an empty corn silo.

I used to believe there was a man who sat in a room surrounded by light switches and when it got dark he would turn all of the street lights on one by one.

I used to believe green houses were made of icicles, because that is what they looked like from the road.

You know how in some roads there are two yellow stripes in the middle? Once I saw my imaginary friend (FrogBoy) driving a remote control car down those lines. So up until I was eight I believed that all little boys who owned remote controlled cars would just walk between those yellow lines, driving their remote control cars to their hearts content. No girls did this because toy cars are a boy thing. 'Little Sally-Sue' dolls, however, well, they're a different story.

When I was about four, I was always being babysat by my mother's friends. One of them lived right on a street. I would never, ever looked up the street because I was convinced that Godzilla and dinosaurs would be fighting up there. -_-;;

I used to believe that the gate house to a country estate near our home was Red Riding hood's cottage and the trees in the grounds were the wood where the big bad wolf would get me. One day my Mum took me to visit a friend of hers who was renting the cottage. I was really disappointed to find out it wasn't true.

When I was a kid we had a neighbor called Old Man Sam, and if you stepped on his lawn he would chase you away because it was private property. So I thought Private Property was some kind of special designation he had gotten from the city.
