When I was about 3 my parents would take me to a Christmas light show every year. (I called this "Light Move Land".) Every time we were driving at night and were going towards a city, I saw the dots of light (from the buildings) in the distance and thought we were going to "Light Move Land". Even once I realized what it really was, I still called it that.

I used to believe that by digging in the sandbox, at my daycare, I would eventually make it to China. My friends and I would dig every day and when we hit the bottom or the sides we thought it was just earth's core.

I used to think maps and globes were somehow connected to places they represent, so if you touched a point on the map, in that part of the world a giant finger would come out of the sky. I refused to touch maps until I was about 8 years old, because "what if my finger hurts someone?"

I have family in several different states, and when I was little, every time someone would talk about these family members, I imagined that they lived crowded together in a long, white hallway, because obviously Ohio was the only state where people had houses and such.

When my mom was little her map of the U.S. had our state (Ohio) green and the other states were a variety of other colors. My mother then believed that the grass in other states was the color on the map. She wouldn't believe my grandma that they were in Michigan because the grass wasn't purple.
