When i was little i didn't understand the phrase 'one for the road' i thought it was some good luck ritual to pour a drink on the road before u drove.
For some weird reason my dad always called ice tea "Monkey Juice". I thought sense milk came from cows then Monkey Juice must come from monkeys. I didnt realize that Monkey Juice wasnt a drink until I was 6 talking to my friends about it.
My little sister (not a native English speaker) thought that the name of the "7-Up"soda is actually Zup, and the pronunciation "sevenup" is just one of the irregularities of the English language.
You know how water damage in buildings ceilings can leave a brown stain? When I was in elementary school I used to think that those strange brown circles were coffee stains. Like, some teacher was surprised and jumped, causing her coffee to fly out of the mug and splatter on the ceiling.
When I was younger I thought that the popping sound in my soda was tons of people clapping. Then I felt bad after I drank the soda.
all the adults around me when i was little drank coffee but my mum said that if children drank coffee they would grow tails. i believed this for years.
When I was little, I used to think that the soda machines in restaurants were hooked to pipes that came directly from the factory. The first time I encountered one that had run out, I was confused, but then I said, "Oh! The factory must be closed." Naturally, everyone else had no idea what I meant.
My sister's friend thought that a "Hard" drink meant it was extra sweet. She drank a bunch of 'Mike's Hard Lemonade' without noticing.
When I was younger my friends convinced me that Dr. Pepper tasted like actual black pepper. [hanging head in shame] And I remember thinking to myself whenever I saw someone drinking it "How can they drink pepper?!??!" I finally got the guts to try it when I was like...18 or 19. I'm 25 now and it's my 2nd fave soda. (Pepsi rules the world!!!)
I used to see those little codes for contests that Pepsi put on their bottle tops, and I believed there was a little person trapped inside trying to talk to me through the cap. So the first time I saw it, I was running through the house at age 8 screaming, "The soda is communicating! The sodais communicating!"
As a kid I was told that if I drank coffee I would get fleas in my stimach, because coffe was for grown ups only. I still do not like coffe, and whenever i drink it I imagine little gnats filling my stomach. I am 23 now.
when i was little my mom told me and my brothers if we sucked to hard on a milkshake straw our ears would just suck into our head......well i beleived her till i was about 12......lol....
When I was a little girl my mom said that if you drank coffee your knees would get black and that is why she told me to never drink coffee and I still don't.
When I was little I thout Cows made Milk, horses made water and goats made apple juice!
coffee is just tea without the teabag
when i was little my cousin told me that if i drank the fizzy drink 7-UP i would grow 7 inches ... so yes i drank bottles and bottles of the stuff but never grew!
I used to think that a "Long Island Iced Tea" was simply iced tea that got spiked with rum.
And when someone mentioned "dry county", my first thought was that it did not rain there much. But this it did not take me long to figure out that it meant that they did not sell alcoholic beverages there.
i thought that soft drinks in America would explode in a person's mouth bocause they call it 'pop'.
My family went to Olive Garden for dinner once, and my little sister, then 5, asked why there were grapevines hanging on the wall. My parents convinced her that if you drink wine at the restaurant, you had to go in the back and stomp barefoot on the grapes to make more wine, so that the next people could have some. And that wine was gross, because people had to use thier stinky feet to make it. My sister, now seven, still believes thats why we shouldn't drink wine.
When I first learnt how to make drinks, I asked my aunt why she stirred the drink after adding water. She said the act will make the drink sweeter. For a long time, I thought one can make any drink sweet by stirring. And for the same reason, one cannot stir something that is naturally sweet (like orange juice, coke...) or not meant to be sweet (like soup).
