I used to think that everyone in the country got a turn at being President. I was scared because I didn't want that kind of responsibility or public attention.

On the TV news I was used to them showing a photo of a person's face in the corner of the screen with the name of that person underneath. So one day they showed Ayatollah Khomeini, with "IRAN" underneath, and I thought Iran was his name.

While growing up in the late 70s and 80s, my father always referred to Communists as "Communist Bastards". He never said the first word without the other. So, in elementary school when we were talking about world history one day, I remember raising my hand and answering, "Because the Communist Bastards ..." It was pretty embarrassing.

As a child, I thought that President Ford and actor Harrison Ford were the same person. Upon seeing Harrison Ford's movie "Air Force One", I told my mother "You know, he does such a good job being president, he should become the real US president again".

I was 7 during the first Quebec referendum (you know, the first time they were deciding if Quebec should separate from Canada?). My parents let me stay up late to watch the reuslts, and when the 'Non' side won, I jumped up and yelled "Yay! We get to stay in Canada!!"

Part of me thought that the whole province would physically separate and have bridges to the other provinces and the US as the only connecting points.

When I was little I remember that my parents said the State of the Union would be on TV that night. We lived in Florida at the time, and I was really, really hoping we would win. I thought State of the Union was a title just like Man of the Year. We didn't win, did we?
