When I Was A Kid....
I saw this on another forum and thought it may be funny to add here. What you do is just post something you used to do or think, as a kid, that you now know was completely silly and/or irrational.


One of the things I posted is:


When I was little, I used to think "canned laughter" (the laughing in the background on tv shows and cartoons such as The Flintstones) was the people who were watching the show at the same time and the speaker on the TV also served as a microphone...So, when I'd watch a cartoon or show with canned laughter, I'd put my mouth up to the speaker on the TV and laugh as loudly as I could so everyone would hear me...

That's a really good one!!

Well, being a life-long animal lover, of course one of my misconceptions as a child would have to do with animals. My maiden name is Shepherd, so I thought the only dogs we could have were German Shepherds. At the time I was about 5 and we happened to have a German Shepherd, so that just reinforced that fact in my mind! I never stopped to think it was odd that the Catos had a Collie, or that the Smiths had a Beagle!!

I was just telling someone today that when I was a kid, when I heard euthanasia mentioned, I thought it concerned young people in China.

Me too! My friend was doing a report on it and I thought it was a cute idea but couldn't figure out the controversial part!

I thought cotton balls were picked right off the plant.
Oh, and I thought that when my Mom told me to get in the car because we were going to go run some errands, she was talking about my little sister. My sister's name is Erin. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why people were always "running Erins".

there were several deer (roadkill) on the roads and my mom said "someone really needs to call the DNR." I asked "What's the DNR??.....Dead and Runover?"

Another thing I thought when I was little....I could never understand why people couldn't drink and drive. I never saw the big deal in drinking a soda or water while you were driving! Needless to say I was too young to even really know about alcohol...LOL
