I used to think that having the following things meant you were rich

– Ice maker in your fridge

– clip on toliet bowel cleaner, I figured if your toliet water was blue it must be special

– cheese strings

When I was little I thought Barkley from Sesame Street was some kind of cyclops. Turns out he is really a sheep dog and that black “eye” is his nose.

SoonAsYouCan:  I thought that don’t drink and drive meant you couldn’t drink anything including coffee or milk and would get very upset if my parents went to get in the car right after a cup of coffee.

A guy at the zoo told me guacamole was just Llama spit and I believed it until I was a teenager.

SoonAsYouCan:  I thought feminine hygene pads were condoms??? Yeah I don’t even know.

Also my older brother told me that when you fart the air makes your buttcheeks clap together and that’s where the sound comes from.

That pulling off the legs of daddy-long-leg spiders was fun….

My dad told me lettuce comes out of people’s noses. I still don’t eat salad.

I grew up with two older brothers so they told me tons of things. One that still sticks with me is… I had an ant bite and my oldest brother told me if I didn’t pop it a baby ant will come out. Because it was actually an egg. I believed that for YEARS! Even now I realize it’s not true but just in case I still pop them. Lol

  • I thought Highlights magazine (the one in doctors’ offices waiting areas and such) had the tagline “Fun with a Porpoise” instead of “Fun with a Purpose” and always wondered what having fun with a dolphin had to do with every single mag.
  • When the “Disney Classic” logo would come up before a Disney movie, I always thought it said “Disney Cinderella” and would wonder why every Disney movie had that.

Apparently some Hooked on Phonics would have done me some good.

I thought there were really skinny people inside stoplights flipping light switches to make the light change. Because that’s how lights work right??

-I really thought my babydolls could come to life, and would kill me if I didn’t treat them well…so for nearly a year, I took really great care of them and would position them certain ways in a doll crib I had so that I would KNOW if they came to life and moved while I was asleep. 

-My dad use to tell me that the “Langoliers” were real and would eat lazy people….I believed him, because, well, he’s my dad…lol

-I thought only rich people were allowed to watch disney channel, and that the “free week” they use to have was just for me because they felt bad for me.
