Just listening to Dido and remembered that before I heard how her name was pronounced I thought it was Diddo. Also thought Sara Bareilles was pronounced 'Sara Buh-ray' (thought it was a French pronunciation of some sort)!

Another one I thought of was that until I was about 13 I thought when people referred to 'airplay' it was the music being played only on flights laugh.gif I used to find it odd that this was so major in determining hits!

Do you have any other similar 'I used to believe this...' stories?

Haha, that 'airplay' one made me giggle!

In Primary/early Secondary school (like, year 7) I thought that when people 'went out' with people / 'asked people out' it meant that they wanted to go outside with them (blush.gif) as opposed to asking them to be their girlfriend/boyfriend. Oh the innocence. x

There are probably plenty more of these incidents that aren't currently coming to mind!

I honest to God thought my 2 reception teachers LIVED together in the school. They weren't lesbians (lol what was one of those?) just two good friends who lived in a house together and let lots of children come round every day.

I thought Ke$ha was pronounced Key-sha
I thought deadmau5 was pronounced Dead-More-Five
and a long time ago I thought boyfriends and girlfriends were just friends who happened to be boys and girls, not people you're in love with (also didn't get what going out meant, thought it meant people going to the shop or park together)
also back in primary school presumed 'gay' was just a synonym for bad/uncool but let's not get into that old debate.

It took me a few months to figure out that the cover of Corrs' Talk On Corners didn't just feature three pictures of the same girl at a different angle and a picture of a guy.

Christianity.

How I ever believe that there was a God who would help your football team win but wouldn't cure children of cancer makes me feel foolish. And how all those animals fit on that boat?

My mum used to tell me she was 21 when I was younger, something didn't fit when my sister happened to be older...

laugh.gif In terms of taking things literally, when people said 'see you later' I used to wonder 'what time later?' (that same day) when they meant just a general 'see you another time' heehee.gif

That there was a man that could somehow deliver presents to every good child in the world in one evening on a flying sled pulled by reindeer, whilst stopping off for mince pies and carrots along the way thinking.gif (and also that there were elves that delivered chocolate coins to our pocket advent calendar daily kink.gif)

omg the colour film thing too, I actually thought when films were black and white, there was no colour in the world laugh.gif

Flying saucers and aliens on planet Earth, because there were books I read aged 13 written by men who said it was true, and if it was in a book it must therefore be true.

Kind of related but I remember being about 7 and my mum asked me to drop a slip off at reception in school. So I did. As in, the class before Year 1.

When I was really young, I thought that when you got "sacked" from a job, it meant that not only did you no longer have a job, but that you also had to wear a sack. I also thought that getting "fired" was a lot more dark than it really is.

A kid in my class thought this too heehee.gif (and so subsequently thought there was no colour when I was growing up because i'm just that old, the little tartlet dry.gif)
