    Default Kids are Dumb

    What dumb or silly misconceptions did you have when you were a kid?

    I was a bit of an insufferable bastard as a kid. I thought most everyone outside of my immediate family was a plant or a robot who existed purely as obstacles in my oath to unmitigated greatness. Kind of like a Truman Show concept but with more infantile narcissism.

    Because my mom tutored a girl with glasses whose name was Paulina, at a certain point I was convinced that all girls who have glasses are named Paulina.

    So on my first day in kindergarten I called this girl in glasses Paulina. She was like "My name is Bożena," and I was like "Nah, you're Paulina".

    I thought glasses did make you smarter. So I wanted them really really badly. So they do eye tests at school and I convinced myself I was going to lie to get glasses! I made myself sick thinking about lying, I didn't even go through with it. Then I went on a mission to prove I was smart WITHOUT glasses. Take that you glasses wearing people.

    My little brother had this great train of thought.

    The Chinese food delivery driver had a green car. So did his Koreans friends Mom.
    So all Asians drove green cars, and all green cars are driven by Asians.

    blew his 6 year old mind when my cousin got a green car.

    Until the age of 6, I had the bizarre impression that the chickens I'd seen running around on a farm and the chicken I ate were two entirely different things. When confronted about this idea and asked where I thought this "eating chicken" came from, I suggested "Maybe trees?". Stranger still, I didn't have this idea regarding pork and pigs, or beef and cows.

    Look at everyone, with these "When I was proper young" stories.

    I was 13 when I found out "lisp" wasn't pronounced "lithp".

    I thought that life would be easier when you became an adult. Boy was I wrong.

    Growing up, I had the impression that my Mum was a centre-left progressive. Pfff, no. She's actually a right-of-centre liberal.

    In 5th grade, maybe 4th grade, a kid brought his rabbit to show and tell.

    He was in the middle of explaining how you can tell this one was a girl rabbit because "it has two buttholes" when the teacher had to step, and the rest of the class starting laughing pretty hard.

    I can't remember stupid things I did/thought. I know they happened, but I guess my mind has blocked them out.

    That being a kid sucked and being an adult would make everything cool.

    I wish I knew what I was on at the time.


    listen to the silence, let it ring on
