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!
lol!

When I was 4 I got a bee sting on my neck, I always thought the mole on my neck was the sting which hadnt fallen out properly! I also thought that dogs and cats were rude because they had no knickers on... my cat wasnt too amused when I tried to put some on him :rolleyes:

...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?
...That if you touched an orange/or any other coloured ladybird other than a red ladybird then you would have only a few hours to live. This was a common belief held by every five year old in my first primary school. I spent an entire day - an innocent five year old - believing i would die after an orange ladybird landed on me - my teacher failed to enlighten me and i endured the agonising sympathy of my classmates on that sticky summer day. It was only at the end of the day when my mother collected me did I find out that I wasn't going to die at all! :mad:

when i was about five i used to go to a private school and we had these very posh pizzas which had mushrooms on them - we all thought these were in fact dead birds that the teachers had hunted during our daily excursion to Hyde Park. We always made a point of taking them off our pizzas before eating them and one time a girl ate it without realising it and when we told her she burst into tears.

I thought that people were shrunk at the BBC and sent down the cable inside my TV.

Ah, the good old days.

I used to believe that if you broke your arm/leg it literally broke off and the plaster was to hold it back on.

I also believed that god lived on my lampshade (it *was* a Mr Men one)

i thought the channel tunnel was clear- and it would like those shark tunnels you get in aquariums.

i thought if you bit your nails, you'd get holes in your stomach.

i thought i could see america from southport beach (to be fair, you can on a really really clear day see the isle of man)

and i thought mussels (yes, the shell-fish) could walk. when i was about 5 i was on a french beach and i had this plastic necklace that got turned round and was on my back and i ran along the beach screaming 'there's a mussels on my back!!!!!'... never quite heard the end of that one.

LOL For some reason I used to think that these ladybirds lived in my lightbulb... I called them Mr and Mrs Ladybird. They looked cartooney and were about the size of mice (like they could fit into my lightbulb!!) and they wore clothes?! WTF :rolleyes:

We'd always go down to crosby beach and on a clear day my parents would say "ooh you can see Wales today"

I spent hours scanning the water for whales
