When i was 3, my 10 year old cousin said she had piano lessons and couldn't play with me.
For some reason, i thought that piano was a type of a game you play on a table, like chess or checkers. My cousin was confused when i asked her where the "pinanno"(how i pronounced "piano") game was. Then when i told her she said she had "pinnano" lessons and couldn't come over, she laughed and told me what it really was. I felt stupid.
I never had a piano in my house, only a toy keyboard, so that's probably why i never knew what it was.
I used to believe that all the soup in the world was made by soup dragons and harvested in a cave, like the Clangers
I used to think that heater was spelled "header"(which i didn't know was pronounced hedder)

A friend of mine told his niece about "Sister". A girl who shows up in your bedroom at night. He told his niece that if she sees her to throw a blanket over her and run to her parent bedroom and tell them. Needless to say his sister and brother-in-law were awakened several times in the middle of the night.
When I was a child I used to believe that the the babies were born from the seeds.
I used to think that all people were english, like me!
