Of course that's not the only silly thing I thought as a child. For example when I was little I thought Arby's was actually called Arby's of Heleman.
Apparently whoever I sat next to in Primary during singing time must have always had a stuffy nose.
My dad's business was next to an empty field when I was growing up.
Speaking of missionaries I had a friend who thought that instead of saying MTC when people were referencing the Missionary Training Center that they were actually saying Empty Sea. Cute, right?
When my husband was little he had a neighbor who's front yard had a fence that sort of looked like this:
I thought the freeway was called such because you didn't have to pay to drive on it...not that I had actually seen my parents pay to drive on any road. And I was disgusted when, as a 5 year old, I discovered that my mom had to actually pay for the food we got from drive-thrus. I thought they were free hand outs.
I could go on, but I won't.
What funny things do you remember thinking as a child?
