When I was about 7, my family (including my aunt and cousins) were planning our first trip to Disneyland.
My Mum and Aunt thought it would be a good idea to have the kids contribute to their own spending money as a responsibility exercise.

We went around a circle giving our ideas. Some ideas where bake sales and car washes, but when it came to my turn, I said very matter-of-factly: "We can save the world, you know!"

I honestly believed we simply had to save the world - then they would let us into Disneyland for free, thus letting us have any toy we wanted.

My big sister insisted that cinnamon (sugar) and pepper were the same thing. I tried some pepper and spit it out. Then she convinced me that it tasted differently on different parts of the tongue. Thoughout my childhood I always moved pepper around in my mouth trying to get it to taste like cinnamon.

When I was a little kid I believed that the weatherman controlled the weather. That's not too unreasonable- you're a little kid watching clouds and fronts move around on the map as the weatherman moves his hands! I was so mad when he made it rain on the weekend that my dad and I were supposed to go camping.

When I was little my dad was a really bad driver and loved to speed and run red lights with me in the car. Once he told me that getting a ticket from the police was actually a ticket to disney world. This prompted me to encourage him to speed, and break other laws of the road until he eventually got a ticket for zig-zagging across the road. The cop told him he was irresponsible for doing this with a child in the car. Then I asked the officer for the ticket so that we could go to disney. He looked at my dad with disgust.

When I was young, I used to think that a "problem" was an actual, physical object. Whenever my parents said something along the lines of "we have a problem", I would searching around the house for the problem so I could throw it away. :)

When i was a kid, my family flew to florida from virginia every summer. When we got above the clouds, I would always look out the window. I thought the clouds were snow, and wondered why we always flew over antarctica to get to florida.

I used to think that the "government" were a bunch of people that worked underground and our poop went by them on a conveyer belt. Probably because I asked my dad where does my poop go when I flushed it? And he said the government takes care of it.

You know how when you're little your parents tell you that you can be anything you want when you grow up? Well I took that literally and wanted to be an elephant when I grew up.

When I was little, I didn't understand the concept of years changing how old people were. I thought that since I was born in January and my little sister (by four years) was born in February, that was what determined our ages. When I learned my Grandma was born December 23rd, I exclaimed, "Grandma! You're older than Jesus!"


She didn't like that.
