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.

My mum once told me Jack from the poem Jack and Jill was a naughty boy because in my nursery rhyme book the picture showed them holding hands. I gasped at everyone i saw holding hands after that, for about a year!

When I was in first grade, I believed that each family had their own unique zip code, which was used as a means of identification. So when we learned how address envelopes in school one day, I was shocked and angry to discover that the teacher had put MY zip code up on the board for everyone else to use! I immediately raised my hand and stated, 'But that's MY zip code! You can't use it!' My teacher had to explain to me that everyone within the surrounding area got to use the same zip code. Hrmph. I still thought I should be the only one allowed to use it.

When I was little my road was frequently covered in tar. To keep me from playing in it, my mother convinced me that tar was perminant. It never came off. Ever. I decided to give myself lots of tatoos.

My dad used to work for a concrete company. We drove by some new buildings that were near completion, and dad told me his company helped build those buildings. He said their truck came and made the foundation, which was the part, under the building, that held it up. Even now, I still imagine a back-hoe type truck under the ground, holding up the building.

I thought that the tin man from the Wizard of Oz lived in the lamposts on my street, and that if I walked near it he would jump out and grab me!

whenever i saw a 'to let' sign outside a property i used to believe there was a toilet for sale, and marvel at the large numbers of adults who had difficulties spelling such a simple word!

When I was younger I used to think the Parcel Force were a van full of people that came to your door and forced you to have parcels. I used to be petrified when I saw the van in our street in case they forced me to have a parcel I didn't want.

my big brother and his friend Once told me when I was about 5 that if you didn't hold your breath while passing a grave-yard the Dead guys would come and haunt you.

To this day it is a tradition for me my big brother and my other brother youger than he first one but older than me, to hold our breaths while passing a grave-yard. Because of my best friend I now hold my breath while passing over bridges, and I put my hand on the ceiling of the car while passing Under a bridge. I am 10-years old.

Remember mousey Mouse, Bird brain, Dog ditz and the others? Well I am all of them and I know have an official name for this. Psyco chicken girl.
