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.
I used to believe jaywalking meant walking around naked in public (from naked as a JAY bird...)
I used to believe that there were crocs in the sewers
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!
When I was little I thought there were little men in the street lights that sat there all day and when night came they turned the light on.
When I was young i used to believe the pay tolls in the miidle of were just built so you could get money and any1 could make them to get rich.
My sister used to think that the black and coloured spots of old gum on the side walk were people who had been smushed into the cement.
I used to think that people with a sign outside their house saying GARAGE SALE meant people were selling their garages
I always belived that when someones house was toilet papered it ment that the person living there was getting married.
When I was about 5 I used to beleive the cracks in the sidewalks were cuts, so I would put all the bandaids I could find on them so they could heal.
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.
when i was about 4-6 my uncle told me that if i went on those city weigh scales that it would blow up and i'd die, it wasnt till i was about 12-13 and i rode my bike over it too see if it was safe, it was, so now when im going that way, and not driving, I take a jump off it.
When i was little i used to think that every house owned a street light and every time someone turned their lights on in their home, the street light they owned turned on at night and when it wasnt on someone was out of their house. It did confuse me when the lights were kept on during the day.
When I was growing up, we would pass what I had assumed to be a playground for adults everyday on the way to my preschool. They looked like so much fun, and I couldn't wait until the day I was old enough to play on these upscale jungle gyms. It wasn't until I was about seven that my mother crushed my dreams by informing me that these were not playgrounds, but instead electrical substations.
Up untill i was about 10 yrs old i used to think that cats eyes (those little reflective things in the middle of the road) were minature gas lamps and every night the old man that lived underneath the road would go along and light every single one individually with a giant match!!
I used to believe that nobody could see me if I was naked outside in the snow because I would blend in.
