I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who thought girls pee via the clitoris! ^.^

Ok, I just found your site and also just started a job at a law firm. Apparently snorting your green tea out of your nose is a)noticed here and b)looked down upon. Worth it.

We had really close family friends and for the longest time I thought they were married; they always were together and I would hear people talking about "their" house. I was probably about 18 when I finally realized that they were brother and sister and the man was gay.

I also had a cousin, "Normellon". I really thought this was her name until I was in my 20's, and found out she was really NORMA ELLEN, and everyone just ran them together.

I just thought of another one (apparently my family has a lot of dumb kids!). When my mom was little, my great-grandma told her that if she slept with a penny on her cheek she would get dimples. For months my mom would tape a penny to the side of her face and sleep like that.

I know comments are closed on the other thread, but I remembered this as I was reading them.

The band Queen hit it big while I was a tween. I knew all along, or at least early on, without really thinking about it, that Freddy Mercury was a gay man.

One day when I was about 26, I was in the bathroom putting on my mascara, thinking of nothing in particular, when there was a sudden loud "clunk" inside my head.

My former husband walked in a second later to find me collapsed against the radiator, weeping with laughter.

I looked at him and said, "Queen! I get it!"

Also, re the other list, "pedes-train" and "segue" for sure.

These were awesome - I learned a few things!


I will admit that I was in my 30's before I realized that there was not really a state named "Arkansaw" AND a state pronounced Ar-Kansas, like Kansas.

My friend remembers being about 15 when he asked his father "what it had been like to live in a black and white world, before the world became color?" - based on his father's collection of National Geographic magazines, prior to early 1962, the world did not exist in color.
