It took me 22 years to figure out that "Kanga and Little Roo" from the Disneyfied version of Winnie the Pooh equalled Kangaroo. My mom was thisclose to disowning me when I revealed my findings to her.
In my senior year of high school I wrote an essay about William Carlos Williams that contained this gem: "In summary, William Carlos Williams was a doctor who delivered more than 2,000 babies, a poet, a playwright, and an essayist." Must've been quite an obstetrics practice.
I had a dream that I REALLY wanted to dress up like Woody Allen for Halloween, but I couldn't find appropriate glasses. I went to some kind of big box store where my friend from high school worked, and I shared my dilemma. She said she had just the thing, and through some sort of dream montage I ended up in a banana outfit complete with glasses. She said they couldn't be purchased separately, and I said I guessed I'd dress up like a banana for Halloween. WHAT? What could this MEAN?
