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.
My nanny told me that If I drank too much soda that I would pee nonstop untill i turned old and died. I dont drink soda now.
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! ;-)
I used to believe that coco cola waa alchoholic.
I got kinda scared when they were serving it at my friends birthday party.LOL!
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!
i thought when people said they dont drink that they never drank anything, not even water
When the drink "TANG" came on the market in the the 60's-my Dad told me it was "GNAT" juice! Of course, I didn't want any of his TANG!
When I was a pre-schooler, my older brother made me promise never to drink cold liquid from mugs (rather than glasses), as it would dry my mouth out and make me be sick. I still feel uncomfortable if I am obliged to drink anything other than tea or coffee from a mug.
When I was little, i was soo afraid to drink black coffee thinking that it would make me dark. It really was my grandfather's fault coz he drinks a lot of coffee and he was, well.. really dark! :)
When i was little i was actually led to believe bottles of lemonade grew on trees. My neighbour pointed out a plant in his garden and over a period of atleast a year explained lemonade was growing there, till one day when he placed a bottle under the tree. To my delight i found the bottle and ran back to my mum screaming with delight that the lemonade tree had grown me a bottle of lemonade, To this day its the neighbourhood joke that is brought up every summer bbq :(
when i was little i used to believe that if milk came from cows that water must come from horses, they were opposites.
I used to believe that when people said that they "didn't drink", that they really didn't drink...anything, ever!. No water, milk, soda, etc...
I used to see/hear this on TV shows a lot. "No thanks, I don't drink."
I was flabbergasted!
when I was in college, I have a colleague who is from the country side of the city, when I was waiting in line at the water fountain i said to him seriously "you know what the water we are drinking was just going in circles and we are drinking the same water over and over again" he looked at me and said "really I never thought of that, thnaks anyway for the info" from that day on he never drunk from the water fountain because he thought It was true.
After few years we met again and asked me if its really true about the water fountain, I was surprised that he still remembers what I said, and I told him that is wasnt true at all I just want you to hurry up so I can get my turn.
when i was little my sister told me that if you pushed down the little buttons on the lid of a cup of soda that say "diet", "root beer", etc, then the next day you would turn into a boy (or if you were a boy, you would turn into a girl).
That you had to be a male to drink beer.
