I used to think the entire state of Pennsylvania was made out of pencils.
I thought photoshop ment a shop that would edit your photos.
When I was little I used to believe that if i wait until the end of the movies I would see my name in the credits.
When I was a child I used to believe that when I touched the floor cracks I would fall to the center of the earth.
When I was younger, I thought Eskimos ate penguin eggs
When I was little I wanted to be an explorer. I figured 2D maps of the world were only showing half the Earth, because obviously the Earth is round, and that the other half hadn't been mapped yet. I wanted to be someone that discovered the other half of the Earth.
When I was young i used to think that the world was flat
My parents told me that the lottery was a contest where the winner got a million dollars, and I mistakenly assumed that ALL contests had a prize of a million dollars. Imagine my excitement when, over the morning announcements, I heard my name being announced as the winner of the 2nd grade environmental poster contest. As I waited in the principal's office to get my prize, I imagined how proud of my parents would be of me when I came home that day with a million dollars. Alas, the actual prize of a free book left me disappointed, but at least I learned an important lesson that day.
As a little girl I used to think that the world was magical.
When I was a little girl, I used to have a funny believe about traveling to China. My brother and I used to think that if we started to dig in the earth, we could arrive to China and see people from there. That was so strange because we tried to do it once, but of course we failed, that was so far from us. We used to believe that people from this part of the world traveled on this way and we could do the same. Now we know that we need to take a flight to get there. Very expensive!
