I asked my mom if there were still pirates, like in "Peter Pan." She said, no all the pirates had been caught and put in jail. So I believed that if you went down to the county jail, the cells would be full of pirates (complete with eye patches, peg legs, etc.).

When I was little, I thought every family had its own lawyer because people said "I'll contact MY lawyer" or "I'll have MY lawyer look it over." After all, we had OUR house, MY OWN bike, etc., that belonged to us/me exclusively. Only I couldn't figure out where the lawyer was kept or how each family could afford one.

I used to believe that joy riding was riding in the car without a destination or purpose so every time my mom would put me in the car to drive me around so I would fall asleep I would have to think of a excuse for the police for when they pulled us over for having a ‘fun time driving’ I lived in fear of being put in jail for having fun in the car!

I used to believe that people with beards were murderers. I thought that my dad was one of them, but he shaved his beard every morning, so that no-one would know the truth.

When I was about 5, up until I was 7 or 8 years old, I used to avoid or run/sneak past any windows in the house when it was dark outside. I belived that there were snipers positioned outside who would shoot at me if they spotted me.

when I was little my mom told us never to have the radio and the TV on at the same time. I thought it was illegal to have both on. So when my little sister turned them both on at once I freaked out, I thought she was going to go to jail.

When I was a little girl, about 5 years old, I believed drinking any beverage in the car was illegal. If we would get into the car and my dad would bring a Coca Cola or something, I would ride in silent fear that the police would get us because my dad was "drinking and driving".

Until the other day I believed that 'kerb-crawling' [picking up prostitutes in a red-light district] was the offence of driving too slowly and too close to the kerb [sidewalk], therefore making all the traffic slow down...how wrong I was!

I used to think "shoplifters" were very strong people who literally got underneath stores and lifted the entire buildings over their heads like weightlifters. Once when I was in a drugstore with my mom, I saw a muscular man with tatoos and a buzz cut. I pointed him out to my mom and said "Look, that guy must be one of those shoplifters!" My mother shushed me.

I used to believe that jaywalking was walking around naked. I think it had something to do with the phrase "naked as a jaybird."
