I used to believe that night is brought about by clouds - dark ones, of course. Never felt the need to clarify this with anybody, it was an obvious fact.

My mom told me if you watched TV right before you got to sleep you'll have nightmares, unless you take a bath so the "bad thoughts" could go away..... I got played.

My brother and I wrote letters to Santa and our Dad would open up the coal furnace door and we would throw them in the fire. We believed they would go directly to the North Pole.

When I was about 4, my older sister told me that since the population of Japan was so high, Japanese people slept sideways on their beds so they could fit more people on every bed. I believed it until I went to a sleepover at 13 and suggested that we sleep "Japanese-style" on the bed so everyone could fit.

My brother had me convinced for a while that each person had to have a unique favorite color, and since his was blue, I had to change mine. On my first day of kindergarten, we had to introduce ourselves and say our favorite color. I was super stressed out because the kids in front of me picked the "good" colors, and I kinda panicked and told everyone my favorite color was gray.

The inside of my stomach was another village with their own villagers. Every time I drank, it rained. Every time I ate, it fed the people. A tummy ache was because the villagers were unhappy.

I thought that if I watched a movie twice the actors would have to do the whole movie again in front of me and that every time at some point if they mess up they would die.

I used to think that when you became a grandparent, you automatically knew how to play the piano. It was always the grandmas that played the Christmas carols and such in every cartoon or sitcom I watched. My grandparents proved this theory wrong....
