When I was about 5 years old I realized what 5 years meant. It confused me, so I asked a friend and she reassured me that we were each at least 100 years old.

When I was very young and was sent to early (7pm, 8pm) I couldn't comprehend that I could sleep for a whole 12 hours. I presumed the clock went from 12 midnight straight to 8am skipping the hours in between.

I used to think that the faster a person fell asleep, the faster time went, so the faster they woke up. I shared a room with my brother, and he always fell asleep quickly, so it was my belief that he was thousands of days ahead of me in time, and i was back living in his past!

We all know that the initials B.C stand for Before Christ. However I always thought that A.D likewise meant After the Devil!!!

I remember it like it was yesterday: When I was in first grade, my teacher asked the class if anyone could explain what Veteran's Day was. I ever-so-smartly raised my hand and announced that "It's the holiday for all the cat and dog doctors." I couldn't understand why Mrs. Vestea and her assistant were laughing at me.

I was WICKEDLY SCARED when the year changed from 1983 to 1984 (I was 7 years old) because all I ever heard was that 1984 was supposed to be a BAD year.

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 in 1st grade my friend was in a different class than me. she told me one day that her teacher's birthday was on february 29th and that she only had a birthday every four years. we were determined to figure out how a nine or ten year old could look so old and be a teacher.

When I was about 7, I went on holiday and met a scottish girl and we beca,e friends. She said she would ring me when we returned home and I gave her my number. A few days after I came home, she rung and we talked for a while. Foolishly, I thought Scotland and Ireland were that far apart that there was a time difference and asked her what time it was there. I was confused to see my brother and my dad waving their arms and mouthing 'NO' to me and I realised my mistake. So, after she replied 3:30, to save face I told her here in Ireland it was 3:35 and hung up. I never talked to her again!

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!

I used to believe that, rather than time zones, the time just changed gradually. So if it was 5:00 where you were, it might be 5:15 50km away.

My mom told me that when she was younger the whole world was black and white. I believed her until I was like ten. And going through her and my father's old pictures, I thought that the adding of color to the world was a gradual thing, because the pictures started with a little color then gradually became like today.

When i was a kid i thought daylight-saving time meant that all the clocks would stop for 1 hour and then start again. I used to try and stay awake to watch the miracle, but always fell asleep before it struck midnight..
