Did you have an experience where you had a long held belief that you never questioned, only to find out that it wasn't actually true? Only you found out years after you should have known better? For example: My husband actually believed that he had a dog that went off to live on a farm. He didn't realize that this was a white lie that parents tell children until he was in a conversation at Grad school wherein they brought up the concept of the prodigal farm. He spoke too soon and said "That's funny because I really did have this dog that went to live on a far," almost immediately after saying this it occurred to him that he had been believing this thing that wasn't true for far longer than he should have.
This was the subject of a This American Life with Ira Glass a few months ago and I was curious if anyone else had anything like this?

That's hilarious, imagine a cut throat business man saying "Hey! It's a doggie dog world"!
