I believed my mother and my grandmother would spit in my drink, to help me grow and be like them. I am strange, I know. After i poured my drink in the cup I would always keep an eye on it.
When i was young and my parents invited people over for dinner, they would always ask them if they wanted an aperitif - up until a year ago i thought they were asking them if they wanted 'a pair of teeth' - who knew !
I used to believe that Dr. Pepper actually tastes like Black pepper. I'm still afraid to try it.
I used to think that Coke and Sprite were competitors. And that by drinking Sprite I was sticking it to Coke and being cool.

Up until someone explained what alchohol did to you, and that it is called "drinking", I never understood what people had against "drinking" in certian situations, like in the car.
I remember saying to some adult friend of my Grandfather's: "why can't you drink in your car? Grandpa lets me drink in the car all the time?" He laughed out loud... Of course I was talking about pop or juice, but I can see now how this would have been a funny statement.
My Mother used to drink coffee all the time. In the winter she said it warmed her, which I could understand. In the summer she said it cooled her, which she explained to me was caused because by putting hot liquid in her, it caused her body to go into "cool down" mode to conteract it.
In the late 70s, there was an AA (Alcoholics Annonymous) commercial that featured a man in various social settings, constantly reaching for a drink. It was accompanied by his voice-over saying "What a great time for a drink". The commerical ended with something to the affect of "Do you have a drinking problem? If so, please get help immediately."
Unfortunately for me, I used to get thirsty very easily as a kid, so I was constantly drinking water, milk, juice, etc. I never knew I had a drinking problem until I saw that commercial, and was so ashamed every time it came on!
When I was little I used to drink a lot of coke. Then, my dad tried to get me to stop drinking coke by telling me that there were flies in it. I didn't beleive him until my older cousin came up to me with a glass of coke that had a big black fly swimming in it. After that, I had completly stopped drinking the soda for 2 or 3 years. A couple of years later,I found out my dad was lying and that fly my cousin had showed me had flew in the coke on its own and then died.
When I was a child, I couldn't understand why "grown-ups" would not order a "Free" refill of coffee instead of paying 50 cents for a cup.(..From a menu)
Since adults liked to drink alcohol so much, I figured it must be the most delicious drink ever. When I had my First Communion at 7 years old I took a sip of the wine and was horrified. It was the most disgusting thing I had ever tasted! I could barely make myself swallow the sip. After that I really didn't know why anyone would voluntarily drink alcohol. Now I know better.
I used to believe that I only went pee after I drank apple juice. I would have to go to the bathroom and be confused all day because I didn't drink apple juice.
I used to believe that drinking anything that was red-- kool aid,fruit punch or tomato juice, gave you more blood
I was about 8 years old. We were visiting my grandma and her boyfriend. I overheard him say to my dad that he had not had a drink in over 10 years. I thought he meant that he hadn't had anything to drink at all!! I thought "wow, I would be so thirsty!"
I used to believe that the date stamped on soda cans and other beverages saying "For best taste, drink by..." meant that the beverage would taste the best on that exact date. I tried saving a can of Coke for about 2 years so that I could savor the "best taste." I thought this applied to milk as well, and learned the hard way that it didn't.
I used to think that absinthe was "abs in the". It confused me a lot.
Once when I was four years old, my mom and I were having dinner. Someone had told me before that grape juice stains(probably talking about clothes, of course). Along with dinner I was drinking a glass of grape juice. Just to clear the confusion, I asked my mom if grape juice stained, which of course, she said yes. Well I had gotten grape juice on my upper lip. Being as I was four years old, I started bawling my head off and ran to the bathroom to wash it off so it wouldn't stain my upper lip!
I used to believe that you gor red hair from drinking coffee. My Grandmother told me so.
When I was growing up, my best friend and went to the same pediatrician. Therefore we thought it was perfectly safe for us to drink out of the same glass since we "shared the same germs". I don't know which one of us came up with that idea, but we both believed it.
