    My first grade teacher sometimes said "if you don't think your brain will turn into a rock". I thought it was true. But I also didn't know what thinking meant. I also didn't quite know what a brain was (I thought it was the body).

    I remember being really weirded out to discover that skeletons, which I loved, were actually INSIDE everyone.

    I still like skeletons.

    Speaking of skeletons...when I was little skeletons really scared me. So before I started school, one time I had seen a skeleton in a classroom in real life or maybe on TV or something, so then until I started school I thought that every single classroom had a skeleton in it, and I was scared to go to school because of that.

    When I was in Grade 5, the nacho flavored Doritos could have very well have taken the place of cigarettes for me: I love the cool ranch flavor, but I hate the nacho flavor, yet that's what all the other kids ate with their lunches, so I, for some reason, started eating them with my lunch as well, because I thought they would make me look cool (which is why I say they were basically like cigarettes for me).

    As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster Goodfeather...

    But seriously, my mother recalls one incident that occured when I was about two years old. One Saturday morning, my four year old cousin got the bright idea that we should make grilled cheese. As to be expected, we got more cheese on the kitchen floor than on the bread. My mother woke up after hearing all of the commotion. Patient as she was, she cleaned up the mess for us. As I was only two years old at the time, I have absolutely no recollection of this event.

    As a kid I use to believe that Disneyland and Hollywood were places in the clouds just like Heaven is. I had a bus driver that told me she went to Disney World or Disneyland. Then I asked what cloud did she had to go on to get there. She answered and pointed at the biggest cloud I was seeing at the time. But I'm sure she was huh about that . lol

    When I was little I thought that when someone's body is buried, it's just thrown in the ground and covered up. So when we were planting flowers on my grandfather's grave, I was always scared that we would accidentally dig up his nose. (Haven't figured out why it was only the nose that I was worried about, though)

    The idea of being buried has always freaked me out, since I was younger I thought that there was a chance that someone could get buried and not actually be dead. Now I personally just think it's rather unsavory, though I know that puts me in a minority.

    I hated walking through the church graveyard because it was always so lumpy....and I thought the ghosts would be sad :(

    Er...I always LOVED cemeteries...I would talk to the dead folk, and believe they heard me and welcomed the company. I imagined they must be bored out of their minds having to just lay there.

    Still love cemeteries, especially grave art. I wish more people would do kosher burial though...no embalming, no ridiculously overpriced casket. Just throw 'em in a box and let 'em return to the earth. Sounds good to me.

    I used to think that the mall was a maze, for some reason.

    The concept of my local two-floor mall had always baffled me when I was little: I couldn't figure out how if you went to one entrance you were on the first floor, but if you go over there to the next one you're on the second floor. It still is kinda amazing when you think about it, how they were able to use a hill like that.

    Most malls are mazes, I'm pretty sure. The last time I went to the mall I must have passed the Pretzel Time about 12 times while wandering around.
