When I was a kid I remember hearing the recommendation to drink 8 glasses of water a day. For some reason I didn't get the "a day" part, so i thought i had to drink it all at once. That seemed impossible to me so I gave it a try one day, chugging water as quickly as I could, and got sick by about the second or third glass.

I used to believe energy drinks could make you get temporary super powers after you drank it. I got very disappointed when I got out of my bed at night and sneaked into the fridge and drank some. I didn't get any superpowers. Come on!

I used to believe that the RB button on drink lids meant the drink was for me. My first name starts with R and the nickname for my middle name starts with B. I then realized that it was for root beer.

I believed Tea is for men and coffee for women. (Because our mother drinks only coffee and our father only tea, my sister and I thought it was an universal rule...)

I used to misread "serve chilled" as "serve child" on lemonade bottles. I thought lemonade was made for kids so it was a serving suggestion.

I always thought that carbonated beverages like Pepsi, Coke, Sprite and suchlike were called fountain drinks because they often "fountained" when you opened the can or bottle. It wasn't until I was 20 and had to maintain a drink fountain as part of my job that I realized the machine that dispensed the drinks was called a fountain. That's where the name comes from, but I still like my idea better.

I used to think Dr. Pepper flavor soda was actually what a Doctor named Pepper tasted like when you ground him up and stuck him in a soda can, and I didn't understand why anyone would want to taste that.

I once saw a cartoon where someone remarked that one of the characters looked pale and "could use some orange juice." Now I know she meant the character looked sickly, like they needed some vitamins. But back then I used to think that OJ put color in your face, so I stopped drinking it for a while, because I liked being pale.

When I was two or three, I used to refuse to drink any liquids that had been sitting for too long because I thought the devil put poison in it when I was not looking. No one told me this about the devil. I just came to that conclusion with my morbid little mind.

I used to believe it was illegal to drink and drive because when you drink from a cup your head is tilted back and you can't see the road. So I thought drinking ANYTHING was illegal.

I used to believe that the drinking and driving law referred to not drinking anything while driving. It actually doesn't. You can't drink liquor while driving.

I didnt realize that the purpose of the buttons on the front of drinking machines for handicapped people were to make the machine more accessible to those in wheelchairs, instead, I thought that button dispensed some special type of water, containing medicine or vitamins so that the handicapped people would get better. I always made sure not to push that button and drink the "handicapped water" because nothing was wrong with me.
