I thought DC Mayor Marion Barry was actually a husband and wife mayoral team (Mary & Barry). I would always wonder why Mary would let Barry do all the TV appearances.

When I was little, my mom had a People magazine with Brad Pitt on the cover. The headline described him as a "ladykiller." For the longest time, I actually thought Brad Pitt had murdered a lot of women!

I used to believe that Anon was a person who wasted all of his time posting hundreds of ridiculous beliefs on this site. Then, I eventually realized, "Anonymous...duh!" I'm glad I'm not the only one here who thought that.

When I started 1st grade, a girl told me her middle name was Marie, which is also my middle name. Because of this, I thought everyone in the world had the same middle name so I used to greet my brother by saying "Hi Daniel Marie!"

He still gets mad at me when I call him that

JFK was elected when I was 4. When I was 8, which was after JFK was asassinated, I surprised my parents by talking about "Elect Kennedy" as if "Elect" was his first name. When asked why I would refer to him that way, I explained that his name was "President Elect Kennedy". So, of course his first name must be "Elect" or why would they call him that?

When I was little, I thought that babies were born with a metal name tag. I'm not sure when I discovered that was not true. It may have been when my mother showed me her list of baby names, and told me how she picked mine.

My nursery school teacher was named Mrs. Rainwater. But she didn't want us to call her that; she simply wanted us to address her as "Rainwater" (I guess "Mrs. Rainwater" would've been too much of a mouthful for 3-year-olds). When she explained that to me, she said, "Just call me plain Rainwater." Well, I understood that a little TOO literally and started addressing her as "Plain Rainwater"! Mrs. Rainwater didn't seem to mind, though, and my family thought it was hilarious!

When I was 4 I overheard my mom talking to my dad about a doctor's appointment she had. I asked her if she was going to see Dr. Pepper, as I believed this was the only doctor there was.
