    I am truely so dense. For the life of me, I've heard the saying all my life 'if a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound' and never could figure what this meant....... no matter how hard I struggled with this riddle or saying ......until now.

    I wonder how may sayings others have heard and haven't figured out or it took them a while?

    I can remember hearing and using the phrase "for all intensive purposes" not realizing it was "for all intents and purposes". I kept wondering what "intensive purposes" were.:type:

    Well, I read The Chronicles of Narnia over and over from the time I was old enough to read.

    It wasn't until I was in my twenties, or was it thirties? that I figured out the parallel between Aslan and God...or had a clue that it was anything at all to do with Christianity or religion.

    Trust me, I felt like THE biggest idiot in the world! and still kinda do but don't tell anyone ok? LOL
