When I was little, I thought the hospital was ONLY for "birthing babies" - So when My 80 year old Great-Grandmother went to the hospital one time, I
thought she was going there to have a baby.
I thought a 'soul' was something in your chest that looked like a small, glowing, gold anvil - no idea why, just did.
I also thought that when a show's announcer said "this show is brought to you by . . ." - I thought "brought to you" was one big word,
"broughtude" I had no idea what it meant and I thought every announcer on every network was saying it.
I also thought that when there was a technical problem with a TV station and they displayed the "please stand by" screen, that it meant someone had
to "stand by" the TV for it to start working again (keep in mind, this was when you still had to get up and walk over to the TV to change the
channel . . . WITH A DIAL!!!!!!!
My Dad also enjoyed tricking/picking at me by telling me little lies when I was a kid. I remember one time he told me that Gravity was what "held
things up" - So one day the teacher asked "does anyone know what Gravity is?" and I proudly raised my hand and said "it's what keeps things up"
- when she told me I was wrong, I got mad at her becuase she was basically calling my Dad a liar! I was furious! - when I found out that she was
right and Dad had told me a story, that's when I stopped trusting him - either then, or when he threw me in the lake to "teach" me how to swim.
