    Admit it.
    I have a question for anyone who grew up with disney movies (the early ones, like sleeping beauty, snow white, etc). Did anyone else not really realize that the "D" in Disney was actually a D, until they were like 15? I'm dead serious, and I know I'm not the only one. I came across a group on facebook called, "When I found out the Disney "D" WAS a "D", it blew my mind" and I immediately joined. As of today it has 114,269 members, all who admit to not really comprehending this as a child. Think about it..when you're little and you're watching your Disney movies, you memorize the logo but you can't read, so you don't see it as letters. And then as you grow up and learn letters, you already know the symbol so much that you 'know' it's pronounced 'Disney', but it looks like a G (or to some, a Q, treble clef, etc). Then all of the sudden you are older and are looking at it...and you realize - It's a D! Wow.... I was like, holy crap I never noticed.

      That's the funniest thing I've ever heard! I had no idea you didn't recognize the D in the Disney logo as being part of the word 'Disney'. But apparently you are not alone. When your aunts and I were little, our dad always use to talk about going to the oak club. We found out when we became adults that he was really talking about the 'O' Club (O for officer, remember he was in the Navy), not the 'oak' club that we thought we were hearing. We were really surprised that all of us girls had made the same mistake.

      Oh, well,

      Love you, Mom

      I was okay with the D in Disney, but I never knew the special K on the box and at the front of the Kellogg's logo was a K - with exactly the same progression of realization as your Disney thing. I feel better about it after your Disney confession. thanks!
