I used to believe the world was all black and white, because of old black and white tv shows my parents watched like Andy Griffith. One day I saw that Andy Griffith was in color so I naturally assumed that sometime when that show was aired color began to come into the world. I asked my parents what year Andy Griffith came out and thought that it was the same year that color came into the world.

When I was about 10 years old John Lennon was assassinated. I did not know who John Lennon was (though I did know of the rock band, the Beatles). In school we had recently learned about the Russian communist dictator Vladimir Lenin, and that's who I thought had died. I wondered why everyone was so sad about such a bad man dying, and thought maybe he had changed his ways, or maybe he wasn't as bad as the teacher thought. I also thought it was weird that he hadn't died yet. I would have thought he'd died years and years ago.

I got the 1990s and 1900s mixed up, so I thought people wore that fancy old-fashioned garb in the 1990's.

Fortunately, the first time my grandpa mentioned "guerrillas" in Central America to me, he explained that they "weren't like gorillas at the zoo", they were people, and it was spelled differently, so I didn't have that confusion.

But when I heard someone mention "guerrilla tactics" in a cartoon, I thought it meant fighting like a gorilla-- beating your chest and all of that.
