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...

I used to think London was in France. Whenever kids in school would say, 'I see london, I see France, I see so and so's underpants', I was confused because I figured if you could see London, of course you could see France!

Just a lot better than the one we had in our garden.

I thought Canada never experienced daytime after I saw a picture of a mountain in Canada at night. I also thought it was nothing but ice and glaciers, like Antarctica, because of this.

When I was 10, my family went to the grand canyon & the adults were talking about how it takes 2 hours to hike down and it can take 4 to 6 hours to go back up. However I misheard them. I thought they said 46 hours, not 4 to 6 hours. I was thinking "Why would anyone want to spend almost two days hiking up a canyon?" A few days later I was thinking about it and I realized my mistake.

I thought Battersea was called that because it was built right next to the sea and got battered by the waves. Later when I learned about the Battersea Shield I thought it was like a giant wall they built at the seaside to shield the city from the waves!

When I was about 4 or 5 my mom told we were going to visit my aunts and uncles that lived in Wales. I pictured them all living inside the stomaches of actual whales. I was very confused when we arrived at a normal house instead.

When I was little my mom would always say if California sunk Puerto Rico would become the 50th state. I used to believe that meant that Puerto Rico would be picked up and moved to where California was.

The first place I ever saw fireworks was Disneyland. When I saw the 4th of July fireworks in my town, I shouted "Disneyland! Disneyland's over there!" My mom tried to prove me wrong, but I was convinced that Disneyland was somehow picked up and moved into the hills in the distance where the fireworks were shot from.

When I was a kid I believed that there were two parts to the world, existing side by side - Eden and the part that God created, and the rest of the world, which came about by evolution. Only in a child's mind could those beliefs exist together! (I no longer believe in evolution.)

When I was younger, I would hear about the war and people being killed in different cities. I always remembered the city Baghdad, though, because I thought that people were saying "Bad Dad". I thought Bad Dad was a place in California (A very far away place at the time) where all of the mean Dads were sent. I always hoped that my dad wouldn't be sent there, even though he was nice.
