    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 know I have a million of these but need to think hard to remember them! As soon as I do, you'll be the first to know :P

    Along the same lines, I think I was about 20 when I worked out that Christmas is 'Christ's Mass'.

    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!
