When I was about 6 years old, where we lived I would often see a dark blue van and it had the word 'Strangers' on it in yellow. I used to think that the man driving it used to drive round and pick up strangers and put them in the back of his van to take them to the police station. I later found out that 'Strangers' was a building firm and was pronounced with a hard 'g' as in string.

I used to believe that God's name was Howard. It wasn't until I was in Junior High that I realized that the prayer was "Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name" and not "Our Father who art in Heaven, Howard be thy name"

When I was little we had our house remodeled - and the remodelers had the last name 'Oakley'. and my dad told us the Oakley's were coming over - but I thought he said "Okreys' - which is how southerners pronounce the vegetable 'Okra'. So I waited in anticipation for these 5-6 foot tall Okra pods in painter caps carrying tool boxes to come marching up the drive. If you think of those animated brooms carrying buckets of water in 'Fantasia's 'Sorcerers Apprentice' you get it.

My older brother used to be really obsessed with dinosaurs, bursting out the scientific names at a young age. When I was 3 or 4 he would call me 'Meredithipithicus'; as in a made-up dinosaur. But because I so often was called this I actually thought it was my name! I went to a store and some lady asked me what my name was. I told her very seriously that my name was 'Meredithipithicus'
