I had this realization tonight as Mikey and I sat down at dinner that I have childhood beliefs deeply embedded in my head that I realize are way off base when I verbalize them.

Take tonight: We were eating tomato soup with these little spoons and Mikey turns to me and says, "My spoon is as shallow as a teaspoon. It takes four spoonfuls to merit a swallow. I could lap it up faster. "

"No you couldn't because you don't have pockets on your tongues like dogs."


"Did I just say that? I remember thinking that as a kid but I didn't realize I never cleared it up in my head. Wow. You know what I just realized? People were probably telling me that dogs make a pocket with their tongue!"

"Wait, you seriously thought that?"

"Yes! Until just barely!"

Mikey made fun of me. Royally. But I deserved it.

Just for the record: I never told you that.
