MissCountryGirl727: OMG the free week of Disney channel was what I LIVED FOR! And I used to think my Furby was going to come alive and kill me. I shoved it in my closet and buried it with as much stuff I could find (because I thought if I just threw it away, it’d be even more mad and come back to find me). The damn thing would randomly talk after months of being in there. Scared the crap outta me. I’m actually still terrified of those things…

-I thought swallowing watermelon seeds would cause a watermelon to grow in your stomach
-Teachers lived at school. It was a great shock to see my math teacher at the grocery store with her kids (!!?!)
-The signs on the road that said “Do not pass” I thought they meant “do not pass this sign” I’d be so worried that my dad would get arrested for blatently ignoring the law on our way to school

For some reason I thought that the moon had furniture inside of it and when it was “full” it just had a lot of furniture in it. I guess I thought that the features that you can see looked like couches or something…
I also thought that little Smurf-like people held your teeth in your mouth. Remember when you had a loose tooth and wiggled it a lot and could sometimes hear a root breaking? I always thought that I had ripped an arm off one of the Smurfs and that tooth would have a little blue arm hanging off of it when it fell out.

I thought the Garth Brooks song “Shameless” said “I’m shaving..” haha!
I can’t think of anything else though, but I’m sure it was all pretty ridiculous

Oh and one more! I have hazel eyes and I guess one time when I was little my dad told someone that they were “goose sh!t green.” I heard it as “goosha green” and would tell everyone that’s what color my eyes were thinking that was a real shade of green. I eventually figured out no one else knew that color and my dad had made it up, I even knew that it meant “the color of goose poop,” but it really wasn’t until I was 25 or 26 that I found out that “goosha” was just a little kid hearing “goose sh!t.”

stephanie091512: Haha. I thought that in the Garth Brooks “Callin Baton Rouge” when he says “Operator won’t you put me on through…” he as saying “Ah Coretta, won’t you put me on through…” and thought that he probably should stop calling so much if he’s on a first-name basis with the operator.

I also thought that drinking driving meant that you couldn’t drink anything while behind the wheel.
I really thought that when someone drowned in the pool, that the person actually went down the drain.
That a drive by shooting was where people shot at you in the car (my grandmother lived in a less than safe neighborhood and I remember squatting down in the backseat of the car to avoid getting shot at), Sad..I know.

I used to think that if I swallowed all of my gum, when I was older someone would cut me open and I’d get it all back.
Even typing that freaks me out.. WTF!

I thought that the news anchors could see me and were talking directly to me lol
And I thought when you dyed your hair it would stay that color until you changed it again lol

MsGinkgo: I thought that too!!! I had a habit of taking things too literally lol.
I used to think that I would really turn into a pumpkin if I was awake at midnight. Or that I’d grow a watermelon in my belly if I ate seeds. I also used to think that babies were made from kissing…that something would travel from inside of the man from his mouth through the woman’s mouth and inside of her stomach…hahaha.

molokoa: sweettea169: eeeeeep! I thought the watermelon seed thing was true too!!! Except I generalized and thought all seeds would do that. Good bye ever eating pomegranate… Btw I still can’t swallow fruit seeds.
I thought growing up physically meant you went into the hospital for surgery, like they’d cut your legs and stick some more bone in there and then sew you back up. Christ no wonder I was so scared of growing!

I always thought that there were sharks in the barred off part of the pool that makes the waves so I’d carefully swim around it.
I thought there could be hurricanes in any body of water so when I stayed at my cousins house in a neighborhood NEAR (not even the same neighborhood) one with a man made lake I would constantly check the weather channel for warnings.
