I didn't know that a tuna fish sandwich actually contained fish.

I had too many fuxored thoughts while growing up so I won't post them here. Some of them were downright terrifying.

But I will say one thing that my family always found kind of cute. When I was in kindergarten our class had many kids from different countries, or parents who were from different countries. Our teacher decided to put on a presentation where each of us children would dress the traditional garb of the country we hailed from. Also, we had to bring in a special dish of food that represented our cutlure. Along with that we each gave a small speech explaining about that country, and in the native tongue of each country we were assigned to, we counted to 10. As a class we presented it to the whole school. It was actually a great little presentation for a kindergarten class and probably one of the best things a teacher ever did to bring social and cultural awareness to the classroom especially for kids so young.

The local cryer got wind that we were doing this presentation and got ahold of the local news, along with the local papers, and did a write up on us. Some of us were interviewed for the paper, that was so exciting for us children!

I represented Russian-Jew, since that's mainly where my family hailed from. When I was being interviewed I blurted out that I thought my dog must be part Jewish as well. It's funny, I remember saying that - and I have the newspaper clipping to prove it. Needless to say my family got a kick out of me saying that our dog was Jewish.

When I was a kid, I thought that a first name belonged only to one person. I remember meeting this kid named Patric and telling him that it wasn't HIS name, it was my brother's. I think I made him cry or something. I also loved to wash chalkboards.

did you have weird thoughts as a kid?

Or what myths did you grow up with?

- In kindergarten, whenever we kids saw a helicopter or plane fly by, we would ALL stop our playing in the playground and wave to the copters/planes, saying, "Bye Mom! Bye Dad!" because for some reason, all of us naturally assumed our parents went to work by plane. I remember our teachers always holding back their laughs when we did that.

- My mental image of God was a military guy wearing a uniform (disruptive pattern material), standing on the tallest mountain in the world and looking through a big telescope. That's how he kept an eye on every soul on the planet.

- Because I had many nightmares about vampires, my mother would always tell me to shout out God's name (or her name!) in my dream, or say something like "This isn't a dream"; then my nightmare would end. Well, I admit, once I called out God's name and the dream ended. But another time, I was trapped in a kitchen in my nightmare, and I opened the door only to see a tall, scary, lady vampire staring back at me. I said confidently, "This isn't a dream and you're not really here!" and SHE DIDN'T MOVE. So, I quickly scrambled under a table. In my dream.

Ok that's enough, I guess.

I used to think that road-signs with a arrow pointing straight were actually pointing up towards the sky...you know, for all the cars with wings...

I also was really scared of getting trapped inside the fridge. I think this was inspired by an episode of Punky Brewster.

I was such a strange child...

i asked my mom about this, and she gave me two more:

1. I used to think the priest in church was God. They always said it was "god's house" and the priest was always there, ergo...

2. When i was finally old enough to understand what was being said at mass, it was very traumatic. Theree is this one part where they say "God has died..."

and with me thinking the priest was god and all, it was very upsetting and I screamed, "Mommy! GOD HAS DIED!" and burst into tears. Me and God (the priest) were buds, and to hear about his death like that was quite a shock....

Yes, that's the episode!! LOL! I was so obsessed with that show when I was a kid. I mean, I wanted to *be* Punky Brewster. Fortunately, my mother refused to let me dress like that. There was far too much hot pink in that girl's wardrobe

Ha! I did see that one. Through the whole episode, I just kept thinking "Heh heh, that's Punky Brewster." I'm far too easily amused...
