I used to think nobody swallowed at the drinking fountain, so I just let the stream hit one corner of my mouth and then flow back out the other edge.
Ditto. But only because you can't drink tap water in KL without boiling it, so the concept of swallowing at the drinking fountain confused me.
I also used to think that college would be difficult, Mesh. It's not a bad thing that it isn't though because it gives me free time for societies and personal growth (in terms of academic reading). If the faculty can't push me to improve, then I have to do it myself.
Oh, oh: I used to think that my aunt was my grandmother-- there's a 20 year gap between her and my dad. My logic was that we didn't want her to feel ancient so we just called her "aunt"-- a suffix for any woman older than my mother. One day when we were waiting for her to get ready, I blurted out that "grandma was so slow," and everyone just stared at me. I don't think my family will ever let me live that down. :(
