When I was little, my mom and my aunt used to exaggerate when they talked about late we had stayed up, and they would always say, "We stayed up till 5 o'clock in the morning!"
I remember having a really heated argument with a girl in pre-school one day when all the kids were bragging about how late they'd stayed up. "I stayed up till 11!" "I stayed up till 1 o'clock!"
I marched proudly to the center of the circle and declared, "Oh yeah? Well I stayed up till 5--o'clock--in the morning!" I beamed and waited for the shock of the others.
Much to my disappointment, their expressions stayed the same and this girl argued, "Well I stayed up till SIX o'clock in the morning!"
I rolled my eyes. "You can't stay up later than 5 o'clock in the morning."
For some reason I had been led to believe that 5 am was the latest it could possibly get.
I used to believe thats people knew some way of telling time I didnt. When they would say its 15 till always wondered how they knew what hour it was I thought it was just a gift I needed to learn
I used to believe that time travel would one day be possible. I spent years deciding where I would want to get sent back to. Should I do something fun like go to Woodstock, or see Lewis & Martin in Vegas? Or should I try to alter history like try to kill Hitler. Then I decided I would go back to when my mother was younger, and convince her to leave my father.
I always thought that after 1999 it would be 1990 again, but with different months and days of the week
I thought one minute is equal to ten seconds, but if you do more than one minute then it is multiply number of minutes by sixty to get seconds, I don't know why I thought one minute was a special exception to this rule... It doesn't make sence to me!
I always thought I had been born in 1888, not 1988, but my sister told me it wasn't possible because Jesus had been born in 1888.
In 1968, when I was 10, my friends and I used to talk about what life would be like in America in the year 2000. We were convinced that there would be flying cars, a solution to world hunger (so we wouldn't have to eat those yucky vegetables on behalf of all those hungry children in China/India/Africa/wherever), and special chutes in every home, with TV-like things where you could press a button to order anything you wanted, and it would come down the chute. (Bear in mind, home computers were still a pipe dream in 1968.)
i used to think there had to be more days than sun-sat and that my mom was just not telling me what they were....
Once I awoke in the night and the clock said 1:00, and I got scared because one hundred was the biggest number in existence. I couldn't go to sleep until I saw it change to 1:01.
I used to think the weekends were three days instead of two!
I believed that after midnight there were actually 12 more hours before the next day. Thus, I never understood why my mom always wanted me to go to sleep so early. I finally found out the truth when I confronted her about having to go to sleep so early.
This is a belief of someone else. I had a girlfriend that thought that everytime we had the Daylight Saving Time, it would drive our country to a different time from the rest of the world.
As I child... I thought time didn't REALLY exist. I thought that time was like a frame of a cartoon film : It wasn't moving, but it looked like it. I also thought your soul traveled through each frame in a different posistion each time.
I abandoned it until I read a book on the idea.
Growing up in Australia I knew we were 10 hours ahead of England, and almost a day ahead of America! Of course, that meant that we were in the future, which made us better than Americans. I remember specifically thinking that rollerblades, even though they were invented in America, would get to Australia a whole day before the Americans got them, which made us more advanced. That's early patriotism for you!
I can remember my Mom talking about long weekends when I was little and she was always planning for them. What I couldn't figure out was why certain weekends were longer than others, I can seriously remember trying to sit down and figure out if the extra hours were on the Sunday or the Saturday. This must have been before I started school - because before you go to school every day is a weekend!
When i was younger i used to belive there was12 second in a minute bc on the clock the numbers went up to 12.I was 6 when i was corrected. Thats sad.
When i was like several months old, i thought i was older than everybody else in the world cuz i thought tht months were longer than years. I thought months were the longest periods of time there were, besides hours. Wow, hours were long to me! Hours, I thought, were like centuries
Up until a few years ago I used to try to go back in time - Normally when my family went on holiday. When we arrived at the hotel or wherever, I would stand still outside trying to remember everything about that moment, the sounds, the smells, everything. At the end of the holiday I would then stand in exactly the same place and imagine I had just arrived, desperately trying to make myself believe that I had gone back in time to the start of the holiday. How pitiful.
When i was about 4 I used to believe that when daylight savings comes and we lose an hour, I thought the hour would be gone forever, and we would never have midnight again.
