When I was four years old and in kindergarten, I said the Pledge of Allegiance for the first time. That day after I got home, I asked my mother, "Why do we all talk to a flag? It's not alive." I believed that adults had been mistaken in thinking that a flag could hear us all talk to it.
I pledge allegiance, to the spam of the united skates of america, and to the repugnant, for Richard Stanz, one naked, under God, Invisible, with liberty and puffed rice for all!
when i was in school, we used to say "all indians are my brothers and sisters"....i never said that..i used to think if i say that then i wont be able to marry so cute girl which are there in my class.....
In kindergaten, I thought the last line of the pledge went "in liberty and justice frog". A few months after starting kindergaten, I realized I had the pledge memorized. I eagerly went to my parents and recited it. I didn't understand why they were cracking up...
I used to think "from which it stands" was "for Richard Stans".
When I was in preschool and they first tought us the pledge, I thought that the last line, "liberty and justice for all" was "liberty and justice frog." Was I wrong or what.
I used to believe that the words "which it stands" were actually "widget stands" I always imagined god presiding over this invisible outdoor market of merchants selling widgets. I wondered for a long time what a widget was. It took me 5 years to get the words right.
My brother used to believe that the pledge of Alleigance went something like this:
I pled Allegiance to the flag, of the United States of America and to the Republic for switches stand, one nation, under God, invisible, with liver trees and justice for all
He convinced me in Kindergarten that his way was the correct way to say it, and the teachers were teaching us (what is truly the proper way of saying it) the other one so we would look stupid..haha...good times.
when i was little after the pledge we would sing My country tis of thee....i thought it went like this:
my country tisofthy (kinda like a name...like timothy or something)
sweet land of liberty of thee icing
land where my father died
land of the childrens pride
from every mountain side
like fritos ring
I thought that the Pledge of Allegiance line was "...one nation, under dog, indivisible..." I pronounced this proudly until I learned how to read and realized that it is "God" we are under. Good to know.
Every morning in grade school we said the Pledge to the Flag. The Pledge includes the words "... one nation under God for which it stands...." referring to the flag. For many years I really wondered what those witches' stands were like. Were they like vegtable stands with witches hanging around or what?
I used to think that the part in the Pledge of Allegience that says "For which is stands" was "For witches stamps"
When we were little my sister and I went to public school. Every day we used to have to say the pledge of allegiance. One day my sister and I were showing my parents how well we said it and they couldn't stop laughing and we couldn't figure out why. Instead of my sister say "and to the republic for WHICH IT STANDS," she used to say "and to the republic for RICHARD SANDS!" I don't think she realized she said it wrong until she was in highschool!
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.
When we first learned the Pledge of Alligence, I didn't know that the word "indivisible" was a word. I thought the teacher always said it wrong, so whenever we came to that part, I said "...one nation, under God, invisible, with liberty and justice for all"
When I was younger, I used to think that if we didn't say the Pledge of Allegiance at school, the Secret Serviec would come and arrest all of us for not saying it.
I believed, being Catholic, that the Pledge of Allegiance was a form of prayer. I went to a private school and we said our prayers right before the Allegiance, so thinking that it was another prayer, I would always make the sign of the cross before and after we said it. It took a considerable amount of time when I was just learning how to do the sign of the cross in Kindergarten to make it, and didn't understand how they finished the pledge so quickly.
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.
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.
In fourth grade, I had just moved (back) to the US and learned the Pledge of Allegiance. Ronald Reagan was President, and I knew he was a Republican. For the longest time, I thought they would have to change "and to the Republic for which it stands" to "and to the Democrat for which it stands," if a Democrat was elected president. I don't remember when I learned what a Republic was, but fortunately, I got myself straightened out!
