Are there any phrases that you heard when you were little that you adopted but really makes no sense? This usually happens when you grow up knowing more than one language.

Mine:
When I was little my mom used to say, "Esta muerta" or "Estoy muerta" when she was talking about being really tired, exhausted or when she saw one of us passed out. The literal translation is "She's dead" or "I'm dead." So ever since I was little I've told people that I just want to die when I'm really tired because I always thought of it as going to sleep because of the phrase my mom used to say.
