Kids say the funniest things…

I remember my dad chuckling, as we watched a history programme together I referred to Henry VIII as ‘Henry Vill’. I did not know Roman numerals existed, and made the mistake of reading numerals as letters. This is a good example of why I decide to look at things differently now compared to when I was a child. Although it made perfect sense that Henry’s surname could be Vill, there was another factor (aka the truth) that I couldn’t take into consideration due to the absence of my knowledge on the subject. One that would eventually make more sense despite being convinced my original belief was pretty solid.

Imagine if I continued to accept that his name was Henry Vill against the facts? Wouldn’t it be an error to continue to believe something that was considered and concluded in my infancy?
