Misconceptions I Had As A Child
- •Airplanes would go really fast off of rampsI used to think that airplanes worked by driving really fast on the runway and then going off a ramp and landing wherever you wanted to go.
- •Giraffes and Elephants lived in the U.S.One day when I was riding in the car, I said, "You never see any giraffes in the wild here."
- •There was a big bridge across the oceanWhen people referred to the other side of the world, it made me think that there was a big bridge that connected the two "sides" of the world. Oddly enough though I always pictured it as a walking bridge. That would be a long walk!
