I used to think that when my mum talked about our 'address' that she was talking about and actual dress. I some how thought that each house was identified by a dress that was allocated to it by the government. This belief was also justified when I overheard mum talking to someone about where we lived and she said 'we live on the outskirts of town'. I always wanted to see this dress she was talking about.

I used to think that there was a main, or central, place in the world. Kind of like a capital city, but of the world. I thought where I lived was that place.

When I was three my family moved to a place called Black Rabbits. I looked all over the place for those rabbits but I never saw them.

Finally I said something about it in front of my parents and they laughed, and we drove down the lake to the place where the RAPIDS were, and they pointed out the sign that said Black Rapids. (Yes, I could read when I was three.) They explained that rapids were a place where the water in the lake moves fast through a narrow spot, and I got the idea.

Still, for at least a little while, whenever we drove past or boated through the rapids I would imagine that I could see the rabbits swimming in the choppy water.

The first line of Canada's nation anthem is "O Canada our home and native land." When I was young I thought that every country in the world used Canada's national anthem but they'd just substitute "Canada" for whatever their country's name was.

When I was younger my friend told me that in Ireland instead of having 3-leaf clover patches they had 4-leaf clover patches and that finding a 3-leaf clover over there was lucky. We devised a plan to sell our 3-leafed clover over there to make money! I actually still believed this till a few months ago when I put some thought in to it ...I'm in Collge

I used to think my school actually disappeared on days when I didn't have school. I thought this because my mom was driving me somewhere on a day off and we went down what I thought was the street my school was on, but it wasn't, so of course my school wasn't on it...
