When I was very young, perhaps 5 or 6, I asked my dad, "Does the President(of the U.S.) own the world?"

He replied, "Well, he thinks he does."

Not having been introduced to the concept of sarcasm, I spent several years thinking that the President was this poor deluded soul whom everyone was humoring.

We were Catholic growing up, and I thought everyone was. When I heard that Kennedy was the first and only Catholic President, I just couldn't belive that then-President Reagan was not a Catholic. It freaked me out.

When I was in kindergarten I used to believe that George Washington was the first president, Abraham Lincoln was the second and Jimmy Carter was the third. I just could never figure out why they started dressing so differently!

I didn't fully grasp the idea of a "secret ballot":

One election year Dad mentioned that no one knows who you vote for. I took that to mean, "including yourself". So I said, "Can't you just walk in there, bang your fist on the table and demand that your vote goes to [a particular candidate] ?"

Some time later I realized the true meaning of the "secret ballot".

Abraham Lincoln invented all the WORDS. He wrote the dictionary by candle light in his log cabin. (Lincon Logs were so named in his honor.)

He took it the wrong way and said "You Going To DIE?

When I was a kid, I'd heard the words governor and government, which must have pretty much run together for me at one time. By the time I had it correctly figured out that the governor was a single elected official (for any given U.S. state, that is, thought I probably didn't understand that much at the time), I puzzled still over who the government was, thinking that that too must be one particular elected official. I clearly remember thinking, "I know who the governor is, but who is the government?", as if each were one particular person.
