...I used to think that "beseeted" was a religious word (when the Vicar says "please be seated") and I didn't get what it actually meant for a long time. What used to confuse you when you were little? Did you ever do/think anything that was perfectly acceptable to you as a child but now you realise how wrong you were?

For quite some time I believed that blood cells talked, and had arms and legged. I blame some cartoon on the BBC which suggested they did.

My dad told me when the ice cream truck played music it had run out of ice cream . Thing was that i'm sure when the bloke saw me he pretended he'd run out because he started playing then.

I used the word ament (ie. your not ament to do that), right up to gcse's. mum thought it was cute and didn't want to tell me. My english teacher helped me rumble her!

Did you know that you can frezze bees, and when they defrost they're completely unharmed. So you can catch them, freeze them, tie little leads around them when they're still frozen, and when they defrost you can have a proper pet bee and take it for walks on its lead...!! Apparently.

That sounds SO SO tempting to try, but I couldn't bare the thought of death by freezer if you're wrong.

I can't remember about me, but my sister used to think that if you turned left from the road to Gerrards Cross and drove down it you would end up in America

If a bee stings you, it dies....so even if it doesnt die from freezing, it wont attack your lips! lol

hmm i also remember finding the film 'critters' horrifying and was convinced they lived under every bed. Needless to say i tried not to walk on the floor and instead jump from my bed & out of the bedroom door! lol

The bee only dies if the stinger is left inside you, which is not always the case. And male bees cannot sting - so if you have the opportunity to sex the bee in question you need not fear being stung

My cousin was called Randall. So when we sang the Christian song "I surrender all" in church, I used to think "surrender" was spelt as "Sir Randall". heh

When I used to go shopping with my mum I thought the supermarket was called OCSET because the TESCO sign was vertical and I read it from the bottom up!
