I used to believe that each week had a name, like 'Monday-Week' and 'Tuesday-Week'. Not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
When I used to ask my Dad what day it was, he'd either say (as an example) "It's Wednesday" or "Wednesday all day". I asked him several times who decided whether it stayed Wednesday all day or not, but he never adequately explained...
when I was 6 I thought 15 was really old. When I was 15 I thought 25 was really old. Now I'm 51 and look at my 6 year old - I just think I'm really old.
i used to beleive that there was no particular order to the days of the week...that somehow people just 'knew' what day was what...that somehow i was missing some kind of special ability that everyone else had...
When I was small I used to think there was at least a week of "NOTHING" between New Year's Eve and New Year's day!
I thought that 1983 went on for 3 years - had to ask my sister who decided how long a year lasted.
I never understood "a stitch in time saves 9" (till fairly recently). I assumed it had something to do with sewing up the fabric of time in a kind of star-trek way.
