When I was a kid and our family would go to fast food restaurants, my sister would often get up from the table with her cup and say, “I’m going to get Dr. Pepper.” When she came back alone I assumed that Dr. Pepper (a doctor, of course) was busy taking children’s temperatures. After this happened a few times, I began to wonder if Dr. Pepper would ever come by to meet us. He didn’t.

I used to believe that drinking Nestle's Quick would somehow trigger a response in my body that made me chug it really fast. The first time I drank it, I proclaimed, "Hey! This is just chocolate milk!" and was sorely disappointed.

When I was little, my mom smoked. She, not having an ash tray, used a Snapple bottle filled with water. She never drank anything but Coke, so I thought Snapple bottles were made just for this purpose.

Fast forward a few years... My mom's friend drank a Snapple in front of me one day, I blurted out (in public), "Mommy, she's drinking CIGARETTE JUICE!"

Cigarette (and Snapple) hater.

I used to believe my mom when she told me that if I would get terribly sick if I drank milk and then soda, one after the other. I now believe she told me this because she didn't want us kids drinking a large amount of expensive milk and soda rather than ordinary water.

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.

When I was a toddler, my dad told me that I would have to sit down to drink my juice. Up until I was about 5, I thought that the real name for apple juice was "sit-down juice".

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 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.
