When I was a kid I thought Shakin' Stevens had died when a green door fell on him cause my Brother said so and Dad said it was true...Imagine my surprise when I was 21 and saw him on tv being interviewed..I called my Dad at work and told him off for lying to me as a child...he laughed so hard and said OMG!! You believed that, I said quite frankly yes this is the first I've heard of his lack of demise.

When I was a kid I thought color TV was magic.

In ancient time silver was much more valuable than gold as it was a rarity, with the discovery of the new world it has become more common than gold and as such the value of it diminished, how ever tradition kept the rankings in the military silver above gold... that is how I got curious about it... why way silver always above gold... and I researched it, and now we know why... I am with you I like silver much better than gold.




When I was a kid, I thought people where good, and trustworthy,I valued all they said... then I grew up...

Is that not the reason for it?

I'd be a limo driver for celebrities.

My best friend and I both wanted to be.

Or to be a vet.

When I was a kid, I did not understand the concept of "reduced for clearance;" I thought it had to do with making things smaller, and it made no sense why that would appeal to people.

When I was little I thought in order to get a job, you just walk in and ask to see the manager, and have a face to face interveiw. Not go online and fill out a form.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

When I was a kid I thought we had it rough because we were kinda poor, but as I have became an adult, that has taught me to appreciate everything I have now.

When I was a child, I thought you could decide what size boobies to have (surgery was not something I was aware of). It was a big shock when mine turned out to be enormous, after I'd already chosen to have little ones.

I thought I could actually get to Narnia through my wardrobe if I just wished hard enough. I spent hours in there pleading with Aslan!

And I was terrified of The Toilet Wolf. If you sat on the toilet too long, he'd run up the stairs inside the toilet and GET YOU! idea1
