I used to believe that a ballot is just a blank piece of paper where you write the name of who you vote for in giant letters.
I used to think that paying someone's bail means you pay to get them out of prison forever. Like even if you were sentenced to life in prison you could buy your way out.
I thought that the world belonged to the president and could do anything he wanted. I always wanted to become the president so I could have the whole world to myself
This is quite similar to the belief about gunpoint being a physical place, but when I first heard about certain items being sold "on the black market" on the news one day, I believed that the black market was an actual place. I imagined it to be a famous and popular marketplace somewhere in the world, just like any other market in a big city. When I found out that it was used to sell many illegal items I asked my mother why the police didn't just go there and shut it down, since everyone knew which city it was in.
