I used to think that the Pledge of Alliegence was something you had to do every day or God would get really mad, so in the morning on weekends I would quietly do the Pledge to this little plastic American flag. My mom never knew about this. Also, I knew the words but I didn't really know what they meant until 2nd Grade when our teacher explained it all. I thought it meant you were worshipping the flag and it seemed to me like you were supposed to bow to it.

I used to believe that when we said the Pledge of Allegiance, we were actually pledging to be soldiers.
So I went home and I said, "Mommy, don't send me to a war!!"
And she looked at me as if I had four eyes. "What happened?"
"They made us say the pledge of Allegiance!"
So she explained it to me. And since I had told EVERYONE in my little class that we were going to some "war", I had to explain it to them too.
Stupid on my part, lol.

I always used to sneeze during the Plege. On a snow day, in the moring, i snezzed. I looked at the c,lock. It was a round the time that we WOULD be saying the pledge in class! I became terified that my body had become accustomed to sneezing at that time, and i would AKWAYS, my whole life, sneeze at that time.

They never really did a good job of explaining the Pledge of Allegiance to us preschoolers. For a good many years, I thought that the line "liberty and justice for all" was suggesting that we all get a steaming cup of Liber Tea, whatever THAT is. With a side of justice.

I used to think that the name of our American flag was "Salute" and I went around pointing at the flag and saying "Salute, the flag!"

Years later I also thought that there was a General named "General Welfare" and that he was really important because written right into the preamble of our constitution is "...promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty...."

I used to thing the words "One nation, Under God" were really "One nation, Underground". I always said it dutifully, but wondered why!

When i was young, i went to a Christian School and we said the 3 plegdes every day and sang a couple songs afterward. I thought that you absolutely HAD to say the pledge or something bad would happen to you. When some of my friends would only mouth or not even say the pledge I thought they would die at any time or be taken away!!~!!

I remember learning the Pledge of Alliegence in first grade. We were told to put our hand over our heart. I became so fixated on feeling my heart beat, that I thought it would stop if my hand was not feeling it. I would casually sneak a feel whenever I could, hoping no one would ask what I was doing.

I thought there was a rule that we had to say the pledge every day. I remember saying it in my room on saturdays and sundays confused where to look since I had no flag. If I forgot to say it on a weekend or holiday I felt really guilty when I remembered and thought I had done something wrong.

I used to believe that the pledge went:
I pledge ally gents
To the flag
Of the united states of america
And to the free public
For witches stand
One nation
Under God
Invinisible
With liber tea
And justice for all

I thought we were pledging to a bunch of gentlemen! And it does make sense, the free public...I also knew about the salem witch trials, so I thought we were standing up for all the witches. I also thought that since we won all of these wars, we were invinisble! And I pictured a bunch of old famous people like Thomas Jefferson, sitting around a table drinking 'Liber tea' I thought Liber tea was reserved for very important people only. One day I asked my mother if she thought I was important enough to drink Liber Tea. She just gave me a weird look and asked for an explanation! She then cleared up the whole situation I was just a little off...

Can I drink Liber Tea??
