    Awww, that's sad Stargazer.

    My husband thought girls didn't, um, pass wind. At all. And he thought that up to his first girlfriend in the 10th grade.

    My dad used to tell this joke and make me repeat it to other adults, etc.: "A man who makes carrots and peas in the same pot is unsanitary." You have to say it out loud to get it, and I think I was 15 or so before I got it. I never understood why everyone would laugh and I would say so, but no one would explain it. Geez, Dad!

    I don't have too many.

    But when I was lil I use to think, of course, that brown milk came from brown cows. I was so confused as to what came from the cows that were white with black spots.

    My dad use to say "lights on" and "lights off" when we were driving in the car, so I thought he was some God of lights.

    I also thought it was possibly to get locked in a mall or store. I use to have nightmares about it constantly.

    And last but not least, like a lot of kids, I always thought I would get sucked down the drain of the bathtub!

    As I was reading the posts in this thread from page 1 I came across the Dog=boy Cat=girl idea. and I remembered thinking the same thing as a kid. I was suprised that so many people thought the same thing. Does anyone have any ideas why. Was there a cartoon or something around that had a dog character that was a boy and a cat that was a girl?


    I have a younger sister and have two cousins where the older sibling is a boy and the younger a girl. As a kid I thought that was the way it always was - every family had two kids with the older one being a boy. Little did I knowe that as an adult I would have two daughters. I'm breaking the rules

    I also used to think that while driving in the car with the family it was a rule that males had to sit on one side, females on the other. When my family went out in the car my dad would drive, my mom would sit in the passengers seat, I would sit in the back behind my dad and my sister would sit behind my mom. I thought that there was some sort of required seating arrangement.

    For the longest time I thought cars could come "alive"...I watched too many 'Herbie' movies as a child, I guess!

    I absolutely had to have my feet covered in bed or something would grab me while I slept...oh and I thought all TV shows were live. No idea why...

    When I misbehaved, my mom would make me sit at the kitchen table for X amount of minutes. I used to close my eyes & get off the chair & try to walk into another room. I thought because I couldn't see her, then she couldn't see me either.
    I don't actually remember doing this, but my mom told me about it.

    I Loved butter when I was little. I would put it on everything my Mom would allow me to put it on. At the time, my mother did a lot of baking, so we usually had the kind in sticks. Well, I used to tell my Mom that I wanted to be a Farmer when I grew up and grow "ears" of butter so I could eat as much as I wanted. Thankfully, I eventually cut back on the butter or I probably would have died of a heart attack by the age of 10

    This thread is too funny!!!

    When I was a kid I used to think that those car top thingies, (the compartment/storage things) were actually Big Mac holders!!! Someone told me that and it stuck with me. They were the same color and the same shape. To this day I still try to convince my son of this as well!

    I always thought cats were girls and dogs were boys too.

    My daughter has taken to figuring out the sex of cars and trucks. Little trucks, like my Ranger would be girls and big trucks like f150's are boys.

    When I was little we lived in an apartment without a fireplace. My dad told me that Santa had a key to all the houses that didn't have fireplaces. I tell my daughter that to this day because we don't have a fireplace either.
