    A few of the malls here are designed like that, too.

    Huh, we have flat ground, and our mall is 1 story.

    I don't have a mall like that. But I use to work in a building like that. It is funny.

    I'm still baffled as to how my campus has a building where you go in one building, go up one flight of stairs, walk down a hall, and be in a completely different building on the third floor, when the stairs in the new building are higher. There is only a slight hill, I wouldn't imagine it being hilly enough to cause a whole floor difference :o

    When I was five, in the middle of Sunday Mass, right before Communion, the priest blesses the bread and wine... "This is the sign of a new and everlasting covenant so that sins may be forgiven, do this in memory of me..." and an altar boy rings these little bells, and little five-year-old-me yells out loud enough for the whole church to hear "ICE CREAM!!!!" (sounds like the Good Humor man was coming!) The whold church laughs,
    the priest rolls his eyes, and my dad smacks me. Catholic hijinx. :)

    When I was a little kid of three, four, and five, I didn't know the name of The Beatles' song "Love Me Do", let alone all of the lyrics (because until I had my tonsils out, I couldn't hear properly)... I could only identify it by the harmonica tune throughout, which, whenever I heard it, made me think of a farm scene (I don't know, there was something about the harmonica that made me think of a farm), so whenever I would TRY to talk about the song, I'd call it "The Barn Song"... and nobody knew what the Elmo I was talking about.

    Remember that scene in "The Wizard of Oz" where the castle guards chanted "All we own, we owe"? As a kid, I thought that they said "Oreo-O", and that they were chanting about oreos. :laugh:

    Haha! That's cute and I could understand that. :)

    Wow, is that the REAL chant? I never knew that! I thought it was all nonsense words. After all, these are evil grunts and flying monkeys...no reason for them to communicate in English (or Oz-ish, I guess)...

    Now you have my brain seguing into "Where There's a Whip" from the animated "The Hobbit".... yeek.

    What's funny is the first time I ever heard "Love Me Do" and its harmonica all I could think of was Sesame Street, lol.

    when I was about 6 or 5 years old, I use to have a go-kart and I pretended, that I was driving a real car. I also use to remember, that when I was a kid, I use to have an imaginary friend. I won't say who, but we did everything together.

    I had 2 imaginary friends... I remember their names and that somehow I let my dad name them but I don't remember how he got away with that.

    My imaginary friends were in my mind and were from shows I watched. Even for the Muppets & Muppet Babies. Animal & me were considered the very best friends together in them.

    Oh gee... I just remembered something REALLY stupid I used to do when I was like two and three...

    Okay, so you all know how impressionable kids are, right? How they mock things they see done, even from television (like how apparently kids were immitating Don Music banging his head on his piano)? Well, as a really little kid, I seem to recall an old Disney cartoon, it may be that one where Donald Duck was a bellhop having to put up with Pete and his bratty kid staying at the hotel, but anyway, I just recall in the cartoon, there was an elevator scene where the elevator moved so fast, the force of the elevator going up caused the characters' pants to drop down...

    So you can just imagine what I would do whenever I got into an elevator and it began moving... :o

    Snowth, they do say exhibitionism begins young...

    I don't recall having imaginary friends...but I had a collection of small ceramic animals that I adored, and all had names and personalities, and I would play with them in a large dollhouse. I HATED dolls and teddy bears and Barbies, and would ignore and throw into the closet any of them given to me by well-meaning relations.

    I am told I often would arrange all my little animals in a long parade, single-file, largest to smallest, winding around things in my room...and heard rather recently that this is a common autistic behaviour...eep. :o
