After being fixated with Thomas the Tank Engine and how the streets lights turned on I finally came to a logical conclusion. I believed that the fat controller lives inside the lamp post on a little chair and turned on the lights when it go dark.
Driving down the road one day, I pointed up at a giant crane at a construction site and asked my mom what it was for.
She must have thought I was looking at something else, because she mentioned something about it helping her lease the car.
For years I thought that cranes would go and pick cars out for you for a lease...
i used to think that when you put cans into the recycling machine to get paid... i thought the quarters that came out were made out of the cans by the machine.
When i was little i thought that one particulary large telephone pole was the eiffel tower, and that there were two since i knew we weren't in france.
When I was little we used to get those big bags of ice. So one day when i was just learning to read we went to go get some ice and we passed an office so I looked at my mom and told not to go there because they are "off ice".
i used to think that an ambulance waz a truck with a bed in it. And u'd sleep in dere if dere waz a monster under the bed.
i used to believe that when you stepped on,
and crunched leaves you could control them.
My brother used to think those yellow street signs with the wavy lines behind a car that indicated curves on the road ahead actually meant that there were snakes on the road ahead. If I recall correctly he was quite frightened by this.
When I was 3 or 4, I used to be afraid of cows. One day I moved to a different town and there was a river behind the house. My mom was afraid that I'd go wander off to the river and fall in so in order to keep me away from the river, she told me that the cows had a house down there (an old dog house in the water)and that I couldn't go down there.
i use to believe there we small people in the street lights and turned on the lights at night
When I was little I believed that the steaming man holes we see in the city, was a direct access to hell. I wanted to go down and visit. #:D
I used to think that the sign on the side of the road that said, "Stop Ahead" meant someone had their head in the road and you had to stop so you wouldn't run it over. My first day at school when the school bus picked me up at the bus stop...I started yelling "Stop! There's a head!" I couldn't understand why the bus driver didn't stop and then started laughing when I tried to explain why I had asked her to....
When i was little, my mom used to tell me that if i got near the street drain the people eater would come out and get me. For years i was scared to death that the people eater would come out and get me.
I was at my friend Zala's (yes, that really is her name) house when I was little, and she was allowed to ride her bike in the street because it was a 'dead end'. I thought that meant you could take a gun and shoot the street and it would be dead.
When I was about 6 or 7, the owner of the neighboring farm was named "Ardell". I thought that he was "our dell", and that probably lots of people had their dells. I think this belief was related to the children's song "The farmer in the dell".
When I was little I thought that pedestrians were people from another country that got their own special crosswalks.
One day a long time ago, I asked my dad what those big towers with the flashing lights were there for (radio towers). He said they build them up and put the flashing lights on them to keep airplanes from running into them. He didn't tell me anything else, so I believed they were just there as an obstacle course for planes or something.
When i was about 5 i thought that evil alian monkeys lived under the sidewalks. i would see if i could hear them talking about taking over the world.
I used to think that signs which said "To Let" actually said Toilet, but the letter "I" was missing.
When I was little we lived out in the country around a lot of tall towers with red flashing lights on them. One time we were driving by one and I saw a little building next to one. I asked my dad what the tower was for and he said "It's a microwave tower", so I thought those little buildings were really HUGE microwaves.
