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).
My aunt used to tell her son which is my cousin that if you drink coffee your knees will turn black.
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 think pee was lemonade.....until I tried it.
my family always used to go to this comic book/cafe place before they got sued. i always got chocolate milk, and the waitresses and my parents had me believing that they had a chocolate cow in behind the counter making it.
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.
I used to beleive that a straw would float in soda because a little invisible elf would hold it up.
i used to think that when they pressed the diet button on a MacDonalds cup it automatically made it diet.. i thought it was something to do with the amount of AIR in the cup. :-D
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.
I used to believe (because my mom told me) that beer was the urine of horses, and thats why they showed (used to) all the horses on the commercials
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
