I used to believe that the earth looked like a globe - with all the lines and directional markers, country names and so forth. The first time I was up in a plane, I couldn't understand why I couldn't see them. When I asked my mom, she said that the lines were too far apart and we'd have to be in outer space to seee them.

I used to believe that everyone in Louisiana ate lasagna and nothing but lasagna. I thought that the state was purposely shaped to look like a piece of lasagna, with a big crinkly noodle coming out the side. I never called it "Louisiana," only "the lasagna state" (in a disgusted voice). I hated lasagna and vowed never to go there.

When I was in elementary school, I told one of my teachers that when I was older, I wanted to travel the world and find a new country. I was very upset when she told me that she was pretty sure all the countries has already been discovered.

I knew that gravity would allow people to walk around in the southern hemisphere and not fall off the world, but I always imagined that their hair would stick straight out, as though the people were dolls with their feet glued to a globe.

I lived in New Hampshire and I knew that, but I thought New Hampshire was where Idaho is. I got their shapes mixed up. It seemed to me that there was a bridge we'd always drive towards but always pull off the highway before we went under it. I figured California was just on the other side of the bridge.

When I was seven, we took a family trip from Eastern Canada to Florida. I was told by my parents we had to change planes in Washington (D.C., I found out years later). So I went and checked a map, but the only Washington I could find was Washington State. I could not figure out why we were flying so far out of the way (all the way across America and back) to get to Florida.

I used to believe that heaven and Israel were the same place, because they were both important to the bible and whenever my Grandmother visited from Israel, she came from the sky in an airplane and when she left, she left in an airplane.

My brother had a map of the United States up on his wall. I knew that we lived in Illinois, and what Illinois looked like on the map. But I thought that ONLY my family lived on that spot on the map, like that was where our house was. And our neighbors across the street lived on the Wisconsin spot. A house next door would be Indiana, stuff like that, even though I knew it was a map of the United States.

I had a friend who thought everywhere outside London was outside England. We lived in London and had a holiday cottage in Derbyshire, and whenever my friend stayed with us there she thought she was in a foreign country.
