When I was 6-7 years old, I knew an officer named Benito, one day my spanish teacher mentioned the death of the mexican hero Benito Juarez , I was shocked and I told to all the class and the teacher that Benito was alive and he worked as an officer near my house.

I used to think that when you went to junior school you had to wear a turban.

My mother enrolled me in pre-school at the university where she was pursuing a degree. My first day there, we were told to expect a fire drill. I had never heard this phrase, and when the loud siren went off, I fell to the floor and started to scream bloody murder. They had to carry me outside. I thought a fire drill was a drill that would come and set us all on fire.

I started swimming competitively when I was 8. I had an autograph from an Olympic swimmer who swam at my club, which he had signed "Ian Crocker, USA". I figured that anybody who competed in swimming was supposed to write their name with the country after it, and about half of my third grade papers say "Maggie Eismeier, USA"

I went to "private" catholic school as a kid, but I had friends that went to "public" schools, so when I saw signs that said "not open to the public" or "private", I figured I was allowed in there. Unfortunately for hilarity's sake, I never tested my theory.

When I was a freshman in high school, I remember when my phys. ed. class was learning volleyball. My phys. ed. teacher taught us about a "forearm pass" and I thought he said "four-arm pass." Sometimes when he told us to do a "forearm pass", I got confused and thought, "How can you do a four-arm pass if we only have two arms?! I'm not Goro (from Mortal Kombat)! It took me some time to realize what my teacher was really saying.

It's not my belief but I'm told about my older brother's first day at school. At lunch break he came home, sat down and said "Well, that's that done!". He actually believed that that was it and his education was over. Arr--bless.

My mother was once called to see the head teacher at my school (when I was 5) as I had been telling the other kids that the liver we were being served for lunch was actually dinosaur meat. One kid had gone home and told his mother that they had eaten this for lunch, and she complained.

I thought that a "fire drill" at school was an actual drill that came out of the ground and caused fires! I was terrified and had nightmares about this until we actually had a fire drill.

When I was in 3rd grade, some of the older kids gave us advice and warnings about what to expect with our new teacher. She was a little picky wouldn't let us in the very front of the room so the older kids told us that she had an invisible fence surrounding that area and if we walked through it, we'd get electrocuted. For the first half of the school year I was puzzled as to how we weren't zapped everytime we had to write on or clean the chalkboard.

I was so gullible...

When I was little, I used to think you had to go to a school that taught you where all the places in the city were. Like you would never know how to get to Target or Toys R' Us unless you took this class...What?!???

A long time ago, my brother heard from a friend that if you pull the fire alarm at school, black ink squirts out and marks you, so that they know who pulled it. I made a fool out of myself in school, because apparently it's not true. XD I can't believe I believed it until 17!

When I was little my first grade teacher told me to add a check next to certain things we agreed with on a hand out. She neglected to add the word "mark" next to check, and the only check I knew of was the one my mom used to buy things with. So I proceded to draw out what a check looked like until I looked around to see why I was taking so long.

When I was in kindergarten, up until around first or second grade, I used to believe that if I stuck my finger into the pencil sharpener and turned the handle, that it would sharpen my finger and I would have my own pencil attached to my hand. Luckily the holes were a bit small for my finger..... :-\

I used to think when you were in High School gym class and you had to change your clothes, you went inside the locker and closed it, then changed your clothes so no one saw you in your underwear.

I used to believe that school was a place kids go to get turned into adults.

When I was in the early grades, my teacher told us to bring manila folders to school the next day. I thought she said Vanilla folders, so I went home and told my mother than I needed to bring a vanilla folder to school. She had never heard of them, of course, and, after calling several stores asking for vanilla folders (because i insisted that that was what the teacher said), and getting no satisfaction, she finally called the teacher (much to my mortification), and was informed, after the teacher quit laughing, of the correct kind of folder, we had to go into the next town to get them, because my mother was too embarrassed to go to a local store and admit her mistake. I still sometimes make the mistake of calling them vanilla folders.

In Kindergarten a girl had stopped coming to school and we later learned that she had moved. I didn't know that "moved" meant "moved to a different house", so I thought that if I sat still for a very long time and then suddenly moved my body really fast it would mean that I didn't have to go to school anymore.
