I was about 4 or 5 years old at the time. My Uncle Charlie used to drink sometimes. One night he came home and was drinking orange juice. I loved orange juice. Anyway, he was drinking a lot of it and then he started acting really funny. He sat on the stove and fell off. It scared me so bad that for years and years I refused to drink orange juice because I didn't want to be funny like Uncle Charlie and fall off of stoves. I didn't know at the time that he had doctored it with some kind of alcohol. I was finally a teenager before I tried drinking orange juice again. And to this day every time I drink it I think of my uncle falling off the stove.

When Al Capone's vault was opened, I overheard someone saying that all they found was a bottle of booze.

So I asked, "What are boos?" I was picturing opening a bottle and hearing a chorus of people booing.

When I was little my parents wouldn't let us drink Coke because they said the caffiene would stunt our growth. I have never seen any proof of this. Were they just making it up so they wouldn't have to share pop with us? My sister won't let her kids drink any dark colored pop because she thinks it has caffiene in it. I told her to read the ingredients, because color has nothing to do with it. She won't believe me.

I used to believe that root beer was literally beer with roots. I was often served it in restaurants, and I would ask,
"Is it freshly made?" which would of course make the grown-ups laugh. It wasn't until I was 7 I figured out that it was actually a kind of soda.

My cousin convinced me that Mountain Dew soda was made when hillbillies climbed up into trees and peed down into buckets. For many years I wouldn't drink Mountain Dew because of this.

When I was younger, I thought cows and horses were opposites...So it was obvious to me that cows made milk, and horses made orange juice, because to me, orange juice and milk were opposites too...

When I was little I always thought that when someone quit drinking, they litterally "quit drinking" everything. I could not for the life of me understand why someone would want to do that.

My Grandfather told me that to make beer the companies poured it in a huge open-air vat and waited until the devil came and jumped through it. Then they bottled it and sold it. Guess what I still don't drink!

I used to believe that root beer was alcoholic. I believed this until my brother offered me a root beer flavored lolipop. It became one of my favorite drinks.

Up until 5th grade I thought that Root Beer was really beer. It made sense to me. My parents never ordered it at restaurants so I figured that it was so they didn't set a bad example.

Now that I know the truth-I love root beer

When I was around 6 years old, me and my brother thought you could make beer from salt and pepper. Don't ask us why we thought that, I just remember mixing salt and pepper together and thinking why it hadn't turned to liquid yet.

I used to believe that orange juice came from the sun because they were the same color. I once spent the better part of a summer afternoon holding a cup up to the sky trying to "squeeze" a glass of OJ

I used to believe that since only adults were allowed to drink wine and other alcohol that it must the most delicious thing in the world. When I had my First Communion at age 7 I was excited that I would get to take a sip of wine. When I drank it, I froze in horror. It was the most disgusting thing I had ever tasted. I wanted to spit it out, but I knew I couldn't do that in church. After that I was very wary about foods that adults loved.
