I used to think that the word "thing" was equal to the word "lollipop". So when my mom would say "I'm almost ready, let me just get my things", I would picture a bag of lollipops.
I really don't know why.
I used to believe that Michael Jackson was a black man.
i thought you switched genders at age 30. no idea why
I was a very gullible child. For the president election between George Bush and John Carry, I wanted Bush to win. Why? My brother and my neighbor came to me one day and said that if John Carry won, he'd kill all of the girls. Then i hated George bush. Why? Because it was supposed to snow, but my neighbor told me that George bush would put a force field over the Earth so it would never snow again. I started crying and said "I hate George Bush"
No, no, it IS George Bush's fault that it didn't snow. Go ahead, hate him : )
Wow, I have a similar story. I supported Bush as a 5 year old and voted for him in my school's mock elections because I heard Al Gore kills babies.
Also, I used to believe you could get pregnant by kissing a girl.
In my old school, we all voted for Bush in the mock elections because we heard that Kerry would abolish summer vacation.
This sounds exactly like something my friend told me.
Wait. Are you her?
I used to think sex was "peeing in each other's pee pees."

I used to believe that all wizards should be pure blood. No mud bloods, no half blood. Wait... I still do believe that.
I used to think my birthday was on a different day each year.
I was scared to eat gushers for the longest time because I thought if I did my head would turn into a piece of fruit like the kids' heads did in the commercials.
Same thing with Airheads. My Brother would cry if I tried to eat one.
Awww! Gez products with commercials like that would probably sell better if they didn't scare little kids.
Yep. I used to believe in Santa and God.
I used to think I would get electrocuted if I touched those tall wood poles that hold the electrical wires in the street.
I still get that feeling so I just avoid them even though I know they don't do any damage.
I remember thinking that once you would get to a certain age you would change your name.
(ex. When I was in preschool, and my sister was in 2nd grade, I thought once I got to second grade my name would change to her name)
I don't even know why..
I used to thinks cops could also give you tickets for good behavior, so I would say "Mom, is that policeman giving that guy a good ticket or a bad one?"
Also, I would call "té" (which is tea in spanish) "tetas" (which is tits in spanish)
For the longest time whenever I heard the the song "here comes the groom", I always thought they said 'broom'. I remember being so confused...
I knew how the whole reproduction thing worked - I asked and was told, but I thought you could only do that in a bed together. So when someone said: you don't need to share a bed to have a baby, I asked if the sperm then walked to the women's room?
I used to think that vampires were out to get me and if I had any part of me out of the covers at night, they'd suck my blood.
My brothers told me that Jason Voorhees' mom's head (from the movies Friday the 13th) lived under my bed and also in the fireplace. I also couldn't have anything out from the covers. I also believed that the more stuffed animals I had, the better protected I was.
I used to think that at A&W you had to be a teen to order a teenburger, or a mother to order a mama burger, and so on.
I used to believe that you had to hold your breath when driving under a bridge or the next one will fall on top of you. I also believed that you have to hold your breath when crossing a cemetary because if you looked at a grave and breathed, you would die the same fate as the person in the grave.
I knew a girl who did that same thing in cemeteries.
I used to think that there were little ants in my clock that changed the numbers.
I had an electric sharpener, and every time I sharpened a pencil I used to think little hotdog men were making it spin around.
also, that germs looked like Emily from Clifford, the big red dog.
people didn't understand....
I used to think that germs could walk. Like if you were eating something with a fork and your hands were dirty, the germs would walk along your fork and into your food.
I used to think Lizzie McGuire was a real person. Same with all other actors really, i thought htey were their characters.
I also thought that every time there was a rerun it was live, like they would have the actors do the same episode over and over again.
Me too. And when I watched really old T.V. shows, I thought they just made clones of the actors that died. ._.
I thought my Dad was Jewish because he didn't believe in Santa.
I was also afraid of my own belly button, because I thought I'd get sucked inside if I touched it.
