A friend’s brother told her the light reflector bumps on the road were Braille for blind drivers so they’d stay in one lane and not drive off the road. She believed it until she was around middle school age.

Oh my…

I thought that cartoons despite being handrawn (or made with CGI) somehow had their own voices… instead of having actors dub them.

Once, when my dad and i were praying, i asked him if the virgin mary existed before god, since the prayer says “Virgin Mary, mother of God” He ROFL’d and told me “i think you’re right!” lol.

Another time, my dad was watching a documentary that said the Sun and/or Earth would die in about… 10 billion years or something, and i told him “good thing i’ll be an old lady by then!” he ROFL’d again.

I thought that if your dreamed something 3 times it would become true.

and many more that i dont remember right now!

Also I knew a single lesbian woman who had a baby. I went around telling everyone you didn’t need a boy and a girl to get pregnant. I was pretty sure women could just decide and go it alone. Oops.

 

Also the cats would protect me from ghosts. They could obviously sense monsters before I could. I kept a close watch on those cats.

After looking at old photos I was convinced that the whole world used to be black and white and later turned sepia until finally turning multicolored in the eighties.

– I thought hills were made by ancient whales.

 

– I thought jaws lived in our hot water tank because the pipes would make noises and I thought he was coming through the pipes to get me. I was terrified of jaws.

 

– I believed that my porcelain dolls would come alive at night and cause mischief and then they would hurry back in their places before I woke up.

I might be too late for this…but I thought the ABC song went:

A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, ELEMENO, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z. Now I know my ABC’s, next time won’t you SLEEP with me?

I got some repeats, definitely thought “Elemeno” as a letter. I rememeber looking up at an alphabet poster and being so confused because I couldn’t find it. 

I also had no idea what the first letter in the Disney logo was, some weird G I always supposed. 

I just realized a few years ago that “making ends meet” was not “making ends meat” as in making enough money to buy meat. I guess I thought it was related to bringing home the bacon.

Interestingly, my 30 year old friend said the other day that someone would get their co-muffins. I almost died laughing when I figured out that that is what she thought comeuppance was actually saying. 

I grew up in a really old (and, to me, creepy) house and when I was a kid I was terrified of ghosts. I would run up the stairs at night because I thought someone was behind me. I would leap onto my bed because I thought someone was under there. I slept with my closet light on so that nobody could sneak out of there. I was most terrified of Bloody Mary, so mirrors were really scary. I had one that faced my bed, so I always had to sleep completely under my covers so that the mirror couldn’t see me. Even if I was sweating because I was so hot, I could not come out from under the covers or have any bit of me showing.

I used to think that ‘boneless chickens’ dragged themselves across the barnyard like slugs.

This thread is so cute and so funny.

When I was a kid I was convinced I saw Santa Claus. I saw him, with a big round tummy and all in red standing at the end of my bed. I believed it was him. So when I found out he wasn’t real I had a little battle in my head. I guess it was probably just my mum. I’m still disappointed.
