Re: Very Funny Misconceptions ...

This probably has more to do with changing times.

In '70 I met the long since ex-wife...
We shook hands when introduced... 3 months later she told me she was pregnant...
Been very careful to shake hands with men only ever since..

One summer my sister and i coached a t-ball team. Little kids 5 and 6 yrs old. One of the kids finally got a hit, and my sister yelled ' run to second!'. The little boy ran thru the pitchers mound to second. I guess we weren't bet good coaches .

Didnt you know shaking hands with Girlies made them pregnant, and rubbing belly buttons did the same.

@Fourwinds -
It is my belief that all left handed people can naturally write backwards when they put the pen in their right hand. Try it all you lefties.

Right handed people can't do it nearly as well when they put a pen in their left hand.

Re: Very Funny Misconceptions ...

I always believed that there was someone out there for everyone. I have traveled
the world and I have yet to find her. But then again, I run into burning buildings,
so what do I know.

Re: Very Funny Misconceptions ...

When I was five, mum and I went for a walk down the lane to pick some blackberries. There was a little bridge over a stream and I went down the bank to explore. When I got under the bridge I heard my voice echoing and didnt know what an echo was so I called to mum and told her I could hear the shadow of my voice.

When I asked Grandpa to come out and play in the garden, he said he couldnt because he had a bone in his leg.
When I heard the ice cream van, I asked grandpa if I could have an ice cream and he said when I could hear the tune playing, it meant they had run out of ices.

When I was little my parents dragged me to the Home Depot for some dry wall nails (or screws I don't really remember). I looked at a bunch of the stuff on the shelves and noticed it was all only drywall stuff, so I turned to my mother and asked where the stuff for wet wall was...

On a delivery from France to Portugal last year we were one day out of La Roche Bernard when the wind died and we had 36hrs of no wind and flat sea's...
The new to boats and sailing owner was amazed...
he'd always believed there was constant wind on the sea...
thats why he'd picked sail...

Re: Very Funny Misconceptions ...

when my eldest was young, she developed a habit of parting with a ciao ( which she pronounced see, eye, ah oh), It took us a while to realise she meant chow!. I can still embarrass her to this day

Re: Very Funny Misconceptions ...

There was only one measly avocado, so the bowl of guacamole wasn't exactly brimming over. When our little four year old critter wanted to try it, I told him it was "mashed grasshoppers" and he decided against trying it. Until he was 25 years old.

That approach doesn't work any longer.

Same age (four), we rented a car while we were at the Charter Boat Show in Antigua and drove around the island. Came over a hill into a small village and a chicken dashed in front of the car. It made it, happily. And then, from the back seat, "Papa, Papa, why did the chicken cross the road?" !!! The au courant response at that time in Pre-K was, of course, "To see his friend, Gregory, peck."

He's still a smarta**.

maybe it is a misconception to assume it is a "her"
