Once I told everyone that I saw a clock reach 1:60.

Regarding Daylight Saving Time, I thought big satellite dishes absorbed and stored sunlight all day and then were "turned on" at dusk for an hour.

In 1999 my older brother told me that in the year 2000 all the computers would go down, all the planes in the sky would crash (right on my street... of course), and all the animals would escape from the zoo and giraffes and elephants would be running down the streets. On New Year's Eve I was so scared I could barely think straight! He also told me that the world would end in 1998. I got so upset and wasted another New Year's Eve worrying.

When I was little, I used to think that there were only 4 minutes to the hour: Like, 3:00, 3:15, 3:30, and 3:45, and then it would be 4:00 and it would start over again. And I got kinda confused one time when I looked at the digital clock and it said 3:16 on it. I was thinking, "What's going on? Something's not right here..."

When I was 6-9, my parents and I were in horseback riding lessons. We went every Sunday afternoon, even in the middle of winter (I live in Canada, you realize). We all had to go one at a time, so our lessons took up the entire afternoon.

The first year, it was, indeed, the middle of winter and wasn't dressed warm enough. I had gone first, so I had to wait outside for my parents to finish. I was frozen down to the bone! To pass the time, I discovered a way to explain why it seemed like that two hours was so long:

A second is a minute, a minute is an hour, an hour is a day, etc. up to "a millenium is a billenium".

From then until I stopped riding, I thought that that was how time worked when it was cold outside.

I used to believe that if I concentrated very hard, I could skip a few years and go directly to high school, or some such thing, kind of like in movies. I was always dissapointed when it never worked, and often ended up with a rather large headache.

I didn't know what months on a calendar were yet, so I used to believe that summer vacations from school was one full year. I thought that turning from 2nd to 3rd grade was the same as turning 6 years old to 7 years old. So I believed that summer vacations were 1 year long.

I used to believe that when the clocks changed and people said we'd lose an hour or gain an hour, we lost or gained that hour every night at midnight.

Also, when people said their watch was fast, I thought it meant that the hands went round faster than normal.

When I was about 5 I used to say "the day after yesterday" when I meant two days ago.

When I was young, I used to wonder
how different things got their
names. When I was about eight years
old, I remember walking to, and from,
church, every Sunday morning, with my
dad. I thought Sunday must have been
called that, because it was sunny.
The only problem was, it always seemed
that my dad and I would get caught in
rain showers, on our walks, every Sunday.
I couldn`t understand this, and I
remember, on countless occasions, asking
my dad why they called it Sunday. I
told him I thought they should have
called it RAINDAY!

When I was little my dad used to watch the weather channel and they would always talk about the wheat days and I wondered why until I asked my dad and he said they were week days.
