I thought that the world would stop, and we would be faced with 365 day cycles of light and dark, and that then electricians would have half a year to take peoples money and half a year to relax in their yachts.

I used to believe that when an ambulance came by, we should touch red, because the person in the ambulance was someone we knew. I also used to believe that African Americans like me were never slaves, until roots came on TV.

My dad once told me that a button on his watch, when pushed, would "beam him up" to another time. I was afraid to hold his watch-hand for fear of touching it by accident.

In Kingdergarten everyday my teacher would ask one of the kids what day it was. In case she asked me, I asked my mom what day it was every morning. One day I asked my mom and she told me that it was tomorrow. That very day my teacher asked me what day it was, and my reply was "today is tomorrow". Everyone was laughing at me.

I believed that "suppertime" was a definite time at which everyone in the world simultaneously ate supper. When I was playing with some of my friends and some of them had to go home because it was suppertime, I ran home and scolded everyone: "Why aren't you having supper? It's suppertime!"

I used to believe that everyone lived until 100 years old, then dropped dead on the spot.

I was also told that every second, a baby is born. And every two seconds, someone dies (both are true i think).
I used to spend countless hours going:

Born.
Born. Dead.
Born.
born. Dead.
ect.

Born. Dead. born. dead....

When I was a little kid, I loved watching "before-sleep show" on TVP1 channel (I was really cartoon addicted), which always ran at seven pm. Since I started watching it when I was three (?) and it was winter, I was sure it was aired when it was dark outside. Then when summer came and sun still was arise behind the window when I watched favourite characters on TV, I was very confused - back then, I imagined day as divided into two main parts: daytime and nightime, and I couldn't understand why they moved my show from early nightime into daytime!

I used to believe time went by faster if you were asleep or had something you dreaded coming up and it went slower if you were expecting something good or were in a situtaion you waited to get out of (like work). I still believe that to this day.

When I was little my mom picked up some KFC and I was very eager to eat it. So I was complaining that I wanted to eat right away. My mom then told me, "we'll be home in a second". I had never heard this phrase before, but I had heard of "in a minute" and knew that meant soon. So, not knowing how long a second would take, I complained and said, "not even a minute?" My mom then explained to me that a second is less than a minute.
