Silly Notions from your early years...
In 3rd grade, I thought that Chicago was in China. See....Chi and Chi in the beginning of each word..?
My 3rd grade class had a teacher's aide. She stood in front and introduced herself, saying that she was originally from Chicago.
My thoughts were: hmmm, that's funny, she doesn't look Chinese.
She was African American or Black if you will. It wasn't until grade 4 or 5 that I learned where Chicago was........LOL
