Ridiculous Things People Believed As Kids

Kids are funny and don't always understand things correctly when they're younger. For example, when I was younger and my mom would say she was going to the drug store, she was buying illegal drugs. It took me a while to figure out that that was not the case. Buzzfeed asked people to share their biggest misunderstandings as kids, and here are some of our favorites!

"I thought old and young versions of movie characters were played by the same actor, and they just waited until the actor grew up to finish making the movie."

"When my parents said colleges were 'hard to get into,' I thought they meant the door was heavy and hard to open."

"I thought clowns were a race of people. I was obviously wrong."

"I thought there were little people in the radio who lived there and played the music for me."

"My dad's birthday is 4th of July so for the longest time I thought our town lit fireworks for him."

"I thought Labor Day was the day all the pregnant ladies went into labor and had their babies."
