I used to believe that drag queens were actually queens, princesses, countesses, or any royalty that would be dragged across the ground under the cars at drag races, and they queen dragged the farthest would win. I would always wonder why they enjoyed this, or why there were so much of them. I found out when I was 14, during a class presentation!

I used to think "an armed person" meant a person without any arms. I grew up during the Vietnam War and so there was a lot of news about "armed camps." I imagined children with hooks standing around the campfire and playing games. (Naturally, crime reports on the news about "armed robbers" and gave me equally vivid mental pictures.

I used to believe the world used to be black and white and everything in the world was painted because when I was little my grandpa told me the hardest part of life a long time ago was watching stop lights going from gray to gray

when I was a kid, I found a scale in my leg. I thought I am turning into a mermaid, thought about it for a while then I scratched it off. After that i regretted what I did and always thought, "I would've been a mermaid right now If i didn't scratch off that scale" turns out it was just dry skin.

my grandpa was slightly overweight. I asked why he was so round. His reply was that he was preganant. I then waited 5 years for his baby and talkign to it whenever I saw him. It seemed logical since I knew about male seahorses.

When I was a kid and my mom would tell me "don't talk to strangers..",I never really knew what a "stranger" was. To me, 'strangers' were tall, skinny men wearing capes, with giant needles on their head...who would stab you to death, with these needles, if you talked to them.

I remember watching the Michael Jackson music video at the beginning of Free Willy. I was convinced that it was a girl singing and when my mom told me it was actually a man I thought she was crazy.

I used to believe that black people were black because they'd been left in the oven, by God, longer than white people. I also believed that as a result, if you licked them they'd taste burnt!

When my mother came home from work (in the 1950,s) she used to talk about all the 'coloured' people who were coming from the Caribbean to work at her place. I thought she meant they were red, green, purple, blue etc. and was dying to meet these people who were all the colours of the rainbow. Fortunately today there is no confusion.

I used to believe that there were monkeys on earth before us. Than they began to work with their hands so they transformed to humans. And if i be lazy, i would become a monkey again. I used to check if i had any hair on my body.

I used to believe that all the neighbors would get together and hire a guy in a bunny suit to distribute candy early Easter Sunday morning. Of course it wasn't a *real* bunny (they weren't that big)... but a guy in a bunny suit? That made all the sense in the world.

My grandmother had wigs on the styrofoam heads when I was a kid. I thought somehow she was able to put that whole thing on and take her current head off and somehow the styrofoam because flesh and bone. They actually terrified me because I thought all the adults could run around changing their heads around. Then when I saw my mom had one from when she was younger to have long hair, well, I was extrememly scared!
