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.

During the grade school I was convinced that alcoholic drinks had to be used every time you made a party. So the morning of my birthday I brought at school a little plastic bottle full of Red Martini!! I offered martini to all my classmates...obviously my teacher spoke with my mother: i fellt like a criminal for so many years!
No Martini, no party! I took this slogan ... litterally! ;-)

When I was pretty young my favorite drink was Mountain Dew... right up until my sister told me it was mountain goat pee. It took me a few years to start drinking it again.

When I was little, I used to think that all soda was called Coke. But what I really liked and wanted was 7-up. When we went to McDonalds, I always said "I want a hamburger, french fries and a Coke". But whenever I got my drink, I always dissapointed that my soda was brown and not the clear kind (7-up) I liked. Nobody ever told me not all sodas were called Coke.

When I was about 10, and had just become a vegetarian, my older sister told me that they used pig's blood in the cola at McDonalds. I totally believed her and didn't drink cola from McDonalds until I was 12. Only then did my mum tell me that there was a law preventing that kind of thing. I still feel stupid about it now!
