I used to think Dracula was some sort of top politician for America living in Philadelphia
no idea where i got this idea from, except i guess Transylvania sounds like Pennsylvania, but i doubt i even knew Philadelphia was in Pennsylvania
As a child, I was convinced that Pennsylvania and Transylvania were in fact the same place. Pennsylvania was just the modernized name. I even have a picture of an imaginary movie poster that I drew in the 1st grade, captioned, "The Vampire: Coming from Pennsylvania".
Furthermore, I also used to think that the word "oxymoron" referred to Billy Mays...
i used to think god was the priest in church and that thunder and lightning was either people in heaven moving their furniture or bowling! or that gods fave football team lost!
all down to my parents wonderful parenting skills e.g lying to me
i also just learned just this christmas that mince pies do not contain mince
When I was four or five I asked my father about how thunderstorms work and he told me that when clouds collide the friction causes sparks, i.e. lightning. The collisions itself are responsible for the thunder
I used to be convinced that my toys could actually talk and move around so I'd tip toe up the stairs and down the hall and then peer round my bedroom door expecting to see my toys moving but I never caught them. I watched Toy Story way too much...
