I used to think that locks had little men on trampolines. when it was unlocked they could bounce up and push a button that kept it unlocked but if you locked it the trampoline would lower and he couldn't reach the "unlock" button.

I never thought I could grow up to be a giraffe or a police car, like many others did. I was very well aware I would stay a human being, but I believed I could MARRY anything imaginable.

Around the age of 5 I had this daydream about having all my relatives in the church, watching me walking down the aisle in a pretty wedding dress and marrying a two metre high piece of licorice candy.

I was worried if I could control myself to only eat a very little piece of my licorice-husband every day, so that it would last for the rest of my life.

My middle name is the same as my father's first name. I assumed that this applied to everyone. When my friend Alan told me he didn't have a middle name I told him it would be the same as his dad's first name. Alan therefore believed he had the middle name Michael for many years.

When I was little, I got stung by a wasp on my foot. I was resting my foot inside, sad because I was missing out on a beautiful summer day, and I told my older brother what happened. He said, "Oh, that sucks, now all of your toes will disappear!"
When my toes didn't disappear, I just thought I was extremely luck. I believed him until I was 11 or 12

A friend told me (and I didn't totally disbelieve him either) that when you go in an aeroplane on holiday, the plane just flies around and around in the sky, while the people on the ground change the scenery and the temperature. The more complicated the change, the longer you stayed in the sky (which is why places like Japan take so long to get to). Then, when the people on the ground were finished, you would land back at the same place, but never know the difference!

When I was a kid my dad used to tell me that there were two toys-r-us's. One was a real toys-r-us and the other was a fullscale cardboard cut-out model of the real toys-r-us, and me and my brother used to always ask "dad, dad, is that the real toys-r-us?" so he always got away without buying us toys.

When I was little, I heard the song 'I Want Candy' by Aaron Carter. My name being Andy, I'd mishear the lyric as 'I Want Andy'.
I found this extremely creepy and imagined the little people in the radio being obsessed with me and wanting to capture me.
