What's the dumbest thing you thought of as a kid?

Recommended Posts

Dumbest, or cutest, but things you thought were true or facts when you were an innocent child. Credit to twitter where I saw the question and thought it was quite cool.

I'll start...

When we used to go through a car tunnel under a river I thought we emerged at the same place we went in🙄😃

My parents were both nurses and when staffing called I thought that staffing was a person and couldn't understand why they always had a different voice.

I used to believe that the world was in black and white when I was a kid. All family pics were black and white. We owned s black and white TV. Just made sense. I think I was around 4 when I learned that wasn’t the case

When I was young, I though people got a raise at work every time they had a child.

So when I was a kid I had a recurring dream about the Fry Guys from the McDonalds ads. In the dream they were following me. If I was in the car, they were in trees watching us drive by. They would look in my windows while I was in bed. I had this dream a lot.

When I was in high school, I told a buddy about those dreams. He immediately said I was visited by aliens and they were keeping an eye on me, and my young brain couldn't process what was happening so I turned them into the Fry Guys to compensate/cope.

I didn't sleep for WEEKS after he told me that. I'd go around the house at 2am making sure all the windows were locked so they couldn't get me.

I thought the same thing but it was from watching the old black and white War of the World’s. I hardly slept for a week after that one.

In reply to the ubiquitous “what do you want to be when you’re all grown up?” - 4 year old downlowkey surmised - “a city... like Houston”

So, to answer @perseveringgolfer more technically - I was apparently operating under the assumption that cities were potentially grown up humans? 🙄

... When I was really little I thought monsters hid under my bed and could come out in the night and eat me. BUT if I kept the covers up to my neck I was safe because they couldn't eat your head. Other than NY City where they ate heads too.  👹

Let's just say I thought quicksand was going to be a lot more of a problem than it ended up being.🙄

... Haha, I imagine you watched Tarzan. Quicksand was always in their episodes and so very lethal.
