I used to believe a second lasted longer than a minute When I was youger, my mom would always answer "just a second" or "one sec" when I called her or asked her for something. Her using the word "second" that way led me to believe that a second lasted the time it took for my mom to help me or listen to me (usualy 5 to 10 minutes). You can imagine how confused I was when a freind of mine told me there were 60 seconds in a minute. I firmly stood my ground and our argument only ended when I asked my parents how long a second was.
When I was very, very young, I was convinced that a week was half a day.
When I was in Kindergarten I thought the time was according to what I now know as the minute hand. For example, if the minute hand was on 2, I thought it was 2 o'clock. If it was on 3, it was 3 o'clock. Until I learned how to tell time.
I used to believe there were only 6 days of the week : Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I was confused when I first heard about Wednesday
I used to think a day was 60 hours long, just like an hour is 60 minutes long and a minute is 60 seconds long. I thought we just slept through most of it.
I used to think "A.M." and "P.M." meant "After Midnight" and "Post Midday".

i used to think before clocks were invented, there was no such thing as time
I used to think that Holisay was an extra day of the week and wondered why it didn't appear on the calendar.
When I was a child, I used to believe that in the year 2020 there would already be robots that work for us just like a human person, like flying cars, that transport would make more modern, more digital. but I see that not.
I used to believe that when the year 2012 will come, the world will end, just as the Mayas predicted in their calendar.
I used to think that April Fools' Day was created when a grown man named John and his businessman (I don't know his name) went to the government in the '70s, demanding there be more fun in the world. After watching a video on the holiday, I got set straight.
I used to believe that every country in the world had the same time. Guess I didn't consider time zones eh?
when I was little, I used to believe that no one should work in the summer. Everyone should rest from the first of June and return to work only in September))))
I used to believe the noon hour was the only time you could eat lunch. If it was before noon it was too early, and if it was afternoon it was too late. Thank goodness that's not true.

I used to think that, at the end of every century (and thus, at the beginning of each new one), a giant shooting star crossed the sky. That was the way people learnt it was already a new century.
"mom can you getu ball back for me? "Sure I'll bring it to you in a jiffy." "What's a jiffy?"
when i was a little girl, i knew rainbow is wonderful thing. but i believed the rainbow came because there was mothers of fairy just took a bath at the river and used a rainbow as the slide as a way to go to river.
When I was three or four, there was a digital clock in my mom's car. I'd always watch the time, anticipating 11:11. I thought that the more 1s there were in a row, the easier it would be for paleontologists to find dinosaur bones, because 1 is the most bone-like numeral. Because 11:11 had four 1s, it was the best time, and I was so happy for those paleontologists. 1:11, 10:11, and 12:11 were also good times, but nothing was ever as exciting as 11:11.
