I asked my sister why ninjas wore so much black. She told me it was so they would blend in more at night. I then figured that if they were doing ninja stuff during the day, then they must wear ninja suits that come in white. I wasn't sure how effectively that would work, but that's what I thought.

I used to think deaf people didn't have ears and that's why they couldn't ear. I got confused when I met a deaf girl at the playground, and I said "You're deaf? You don't look deaf to me". After my mom asked why, I said "Because she has ears! Deaf people don't have ears!"

My dad has a small white scar on his upper lip. When I was younger I used to think it was a white pencil line, which he applied every morning.

When I was about 4 years old I used to believe that adults would take out their hair because they were all bald aliens and they only wore hair when I was around because it was a secret.

I believed this until the day I was in a bar with my parents and I told them I was going for a walk but I came back when I reached the corner, I found a big bald man and I hit him in the head with a toy thinking he was my father.

When I was about 7 I was a tomboy and wanted to be a boy. Another little boy my age told me that he could change me into a boy. I believed him and we spent an hour preforming a ritual to make me into a real boy.

I used to believe that the Statue of Liberty was a statue of my Aunt Joan! Nobody ever told me this, I just thought it was a fact because they looked similar.

I used to believe that you were either black or white. Like if you weren't African-American, you were white. If you were Mexican-American you were white. I didn't even think about Asian-Americans. I believed this until my freshman year of high school, when a girl who was Mexican made a joke about white girls. Then I said, "You're white!" and she said, "No I'm not. I'm Mexican."

I was so smart when I was seven years old. I could sleep a few minutes later if I just put my school clothes on the night before, and slept in them. The bonus was I would do this no matter what I was wearing...dresses included.

I used to believe that each sock had to go on a specific foot (like shoes). But I always had a hard time figuring out which sock belonged on which foot. I felt pretty embarassed to ask my mum for help, and when I finally asked her she started laughing. I thought this was because she thought I was stupid for not being able to tell which sock belonged on which foot. I was pretty confused.
