I used to believe, instead of in a weekday/weekend pattern, whether or not there was school on a certain day was totally ranfom.

In nursery school, I believed that the teacher was called Miss Penketh because of the pen behind her ear, and the assistant was called Mrs Smiley because she was indeed very nice and smiley.
My mum secretly knew that I preferred Smiley to Penketh lol, although that's just because she was prettier, although Miss Penketh was a nice teacher anyway. Coincidentally I have also had two different music teachers called Mrs Hall, as in the music hall, and a neighbour called Mrs Lane, like saying 'Mrs Lane who lives down the lane'. She was a scary old Scottish lady, who we always avoided, but laugh to look back on.

I once randomly thought out loud that school days were 14 hours long, only to find out that it's actually 6. No idea why.

I used to think that going to university would be like going to boarding school, hence the fact that you stay overnight. No wonder I never had a chance to go.

You know those shirts you wear in school for P.E which say "physed"? For the longest time I misread it as saying "psyched" and wondered why they had the kids shirts that said that.

When I was four through six, I attended this school which had "the golden rules", only the paper these rules were written on was actually yellow, not gold, so I thought that they ought to be called the "yellow rules".

I went to a private school as a child, and I thought they were called "private schools" because you weren't supposed to tell anyone about them. It was weird every time my relatives asked how I was doing in school, only to get the response of "That's a secret."

When I was five or six, I drew on a globe and a teacher snapped, "You must not draw on school property!!".
So I thought that drawing wasn't allowed on school premises.

My teacher held out a hand to say, "stop" but I thought she wanted a high-five.

When my teacher told me to mind my P's and Q's, I thought she was saying "peas in queues" and I was like, "That doesn't make sense!".
