Yep, I had the exact same thing with "misled", probably also corrected in the '90s. I imagine it's less common now with all online videos, audiobooks and podcasts supplying a lot of the information we used to get by reading.

Paradigm is another one that had me stumped when I was young. The 'g' just threw me off for some reason and I never realized it was silent. I mean, say that word without a silent 'g'... paradi-gym. Why would my brain think that was a-okay? And, even more weirdly I knew what the word meant when reading it incorrectly simply because of the context of the sentences in which it was written. I knew the word to hear it spoken correctly. It took me AGES to realize it was the same word and I had been pronouncing it wrong in my head when reading. I genuinely don't consider myself an idiot... but... there are instances of the way my brain works that really leaves me second guessing sometimes.
I surely have more. hmmm. Oh, I do indeed.
Fruition. I read it incorrectly when I was really young. Fruit-ation for some reason. Even well past knowing the correctness I still found that I read it incorrectly for years. I vividly remember saying it wrong once as an adult, immediately correcting myself, laughing it off, but internally being aghast that younger idiocy still not only lurked, but came right to the surface.

Sheep are very similar to children, IMO. My friends had 3 ewes and they (the sheep) loved wandering into their house expecting to be treated just like their humans. Very sweet natured.

I remember the day my dad bought a polaroid camera and wanted to use it. So he waited until my mom went into the bathroom then kicked open the door and took a picture of my mother sitting on the toilet. Oh, the memories than ensued from that one little polaroid picture...

My dad was a master beekeeper and president of SEMBA (south eastern Michigan Beekeeper Association for a number of years. He loved his bees almost to an obsession. There are so many ways for honey to be tampered with. The worst honey on the market comes from China and India because of contamination and questionable additives. In the US the fda allows honey to be cut up to 50% with corn syrup and it doesn't have to be put on the label. The words "natural" and "real" on honey labels mean nothing. Actual real honey will crystalize when the temperature gets cold enough and real honey will never go bad. Many jars of honey in grocery stores will never crystalize because they may be cut with corn syrup or they were heated too high and the nutrients in the honey were killed off and it won't turn to sugar. Your best chance of getting honest to goodness, untampered honey is to buy from your local beekeepers.Also: honey is a natural antidote to bee stings. It takes the pain away immediately - I know this first hand. It is also useful for burns on your hand/arm.
