When my cousins and I were younger we always wanted to spend the night over at one or the other's house. Well, our parents would get around it by saying we could the "second Tuesday of next week." Now, it took us quite a while to finally realize there was no second Tuesday in ANY week....needless to say, it still brings me a chuckle when I think about it.

You see how you get watches? As in the clocks you wear on your wrist ^o) ... well when I was about 4, I had always had watches with numbers all around it and I noticed my mum's watch only had 4 little dashes. And I asked her how do you know what the time is and she told me that when you get older you will be able to see them. And pointed to a "10" which to me was an empty space O.o Well I though adults eyes could see things that were too small for children to see until I was about 8 :S

I used to believe that the day added to February every leap year stayed on permanently, so the number of days in February would go up to 29, then 30, then 31, and on up indefinitely until it was the longest month imaginable.

My brother and I were walking around in our orchard and he got bored so he told me to wait beside our fence for a minute while he went inside to get something. He told me to count to 60 because I was really little and didn't know what a minute was and then he left. Well, I didn't know how to count past fifteen, so I was out there for about ten minutes before I went looking for him...man, for the longest time I thought minutes were that long.

In 1st grade my teacher told me to remind her that I had to leave at 1 pm for a dental appointment. I thought that meant I had to remind her every few minutes, so from 8-1, I raised my hand every 15 minutes or so & reminded her. She never got mad or acted like I was doing something strange!

When I was a baby (old enough to talk) whenever my mom asked me what time it was I would say 45 for some reason.

I thought that the day started at 5:00 A.M. I would always get mad when people said the day started at Midnight. And when they said that 1:00 P.M. was 13:00 in military time, I was wondering why they had 13 instead of 8.

I don't remember how or why, but somehow my sister convinced me that everyone skipped the year 2000 because scientific evidence proved that the Earth was older than that, and skipped right on to 2001... I believed her for above three years. Seriously XD

The year 2000 is just an urban legend!

when i was about 6 years old, i thought that there was 100 minutes in an hour, and of course, when some of my friends asked me how many minutes there was in an hour, i blurted out '100!!' everyone started to laugh, and they still haven't forgot about it!!

Not my belief .. actually my cousin's. When my cousin was young (maybe 5 or 6)My parents and I traveled from our home state of Wisc. to his home state of Conn. to visit family. Well, in Wisc. ATMs are called TYME Machines (TYME being the brand or whatever of ATM) Well when we took my young cousin to the mall shopping he thought that we were either mad or Wisc. was a wonderful place of easy time travel ... because we kept looking around the mall for "Time Machines"

I once refused to believe in Thursday. I'd heard there were seven days in a week, but could only name six.

From being 3 until about 7, every New Year's Eve a Great Uncle would tell me to go to the 'Turnpike' in town and I'd see a man sat there with as many noses as there were days left in the year; for years i thought there was a man with 365 noses and begged my mum and dad to take me to see him, until i was old enough to work out what he actually meant!
