    Life is so much incredibly more than what job you have and have much money you earn.

    Typo on my part! It is spelt 'fortnight', but the principle is still the same. :)

    Took until my late twenties to realise the word was "respite" not "rest bite". :D

    I remember having a similar revelation with 'breakfast' -> break + fast. (As in, OMG I've been asleep all night and haven't eaten. Need some coco pops now!)

    -That the straight ahead arrow on road signs was not pointing up into the sky but it means go forwards - was 15
    -That in the Disney logo... it's actually a capital D... was 15
    - Signs that say Trespassers Prohibited don't say Trespassers Forbidided. was 14
    - "hey your shoelace is undone" 1) I looked down 2) I had velcroe shoes...

    Doh!
