“What is something silly you thought as a kid that you now know is wrong. I’ll go first. I thought there were little men inside the traffic lights changing the lights when appropriate.”
(Why this picture? Well, she’s cute of course…and there are likely a whole bunch of silly things she thinks! And, so my grandma can see the adorable Easter hat!)
The responses? No less than awesome.
Lisa: “I thought all cats were girls and dogs were boys.”
Jessica: “I thought drinking and driving included chocolate milk.”
Elaine: “I thought if cows gave milk, horses gave orange juice….”
@L8enough: I thought the television stopped when I turned it off. Like the people rested between sets.
@nsponseller: I thought the road sign “End Road Work” was a protest sign! Seriously. LOL. 🙂
@mamahall: the big lights along the highway? I thought those were mini-airports or plane gas stations.
@AmandaNethero: I thought Fred and Barney were really in all of the rock quarries
@Laura_willard: Okay, so I thought women got pregnant when men peed on them. Hey! Maybe that’s why I always knew I wanted to adopt…
Meg: “That if you owned a pickup truck, you HAD to get a big scary dog to ride in the back. I was terrified every time my parents went new car shopping that they’d come home with a truck and a scary dog. “
Debbie: “I used to think those same little people were inside me “fixing” me when I wasn’t feeling good because how did the Tylenol know what to fix first?!”
Angela: “When I was really young (say about 5 or 6) I thought that I was the only person that thought!”
Curtis wrote: “I also thought witches lived under the bathtub drain.”
I’m adding a new one now. I thought when the people on the news said a tornado sounded like a train that I would hear “choo choo” like the whistle. Not the rumble the train makes on the tracks.
What are some of the silly things you thought when you were little (or even big)? Don’t make us feel like the odd ones out. Add yours to the list!
