I used to believe that rootbeer was made from the roots of a beer plant.

When I was in elmentary school we had the deal where they gave you the talk about drinking, smoking, and all those other bad for you things. When they began talking about "drinking alcohol" I thought they meant the rubbing alcohol. I was disgusted and confused. I thought that stuff burns who would ever want to drink it?

When I was little I used to hear about not drinking and driving, but I thought it meant you couldn't drink anything so one day when my mom was drinking coffee in the car, I wondered why we didn't get arrested.

When I was about six, I would drink pop in a cup. Well, you know how there is fizz? Well, I used to be scared of drinking the fizz. So I would tilt the cup or move it around to it wouldent touch my lips.

When I was little, I used to drink a lot when I ate. So, in an effort by my mom to get me to slow down on the drink and get more food in me, she would tell me that "if I drank too much I would float away". I pictured drinking too much and the house filling up with fluid and me floating away in it, right out the door. It definately slowed down my drinking during meals.

I used to watch TV shows where wifes would complain that her husband was drinking too much beer. I never understood what the fuss was all about - I loved my root beer!

I used to believe that when you made suicide drinks (mixing all of the drinks at take out resturants) and drank them, that you would actually die.

top belief!

When I was younger I used to drink diet coke all the time because that was what my mom drank and I wanted to be like her. I used to think that if I were to pour the coke on the ground then a coke tree would grow and I could pick coke cans off of the tree and drink the coke out of there. I believed this for years!

I always thought there was a drinking age for coffee, because it was an adult drink like beer and wine.

When you open a fresh can of soda the carbonation rises out in a steam-like gas. I asked my mom what it was and she must have said it was the carbonation, but I went on for the rest of my life thinking the caffine was coming out of it. (this was cleared up last week.)

My mom and dad didn't want me to drink caffine pop so I would try to suck it out (with my mouth) when it rose up so there wouldn't be any left in the can and, therefore, I wouldn't be drinking it.

I just ignored the "caffine" that rose out of the caffine-free popcans, as that defied my theory.

When i was little, i went to my uncle's house. I asked for some lemonade, but he told me not to drnk it because it made you small by shrinking you. i belived it had something to do with the bubbles, and the gas that somehow made you small. I told myself i'd never drink it again, but of course being little, i just forgot, and i've drunk it ever since!!

My family moves a lot because my dad's in the military, and it was about 1996 (I was 6 then) when we moved to Manitoba from Nova Scotia.
My parents made coffee with the coffee machine that was supplied in one of our hotel rooms. I heard them discussing it. My dad made a face at the coffee and stated, "I got the grounds". Little did I know that my parents use the term "the grounds" for when the coffee doesn't filter properly and you get coffee grounds in your cup.
Well, I thought The Grounds was a disease, and in my six-year-old mind, diseases were always fatal. I wondered why my mom and dad were so calm about my dad having such a horrible illness. I vowed never to drink coffee because I did not want to end up in the hospital, let alone dead, from a case of The Grounds.
My parents still say "I got the grounds", and I still haven't told them my beleif. I now enjoy coffee, and I'm still alive evough to be typing this. Hahahaha.

that coffee had to go into thick cups and tea in thin cups. This is because tea is thinner than coffee!

By the way, I am now thirty and I still believe this!! I just found out today that this isn't correct!!!

When I was 5 my family and I hand gone to a wedding. We stopped in at Arby's and my mom got a us each a milkshake. I was horrified when my mom drove away and began drinking hers. On TV when they talked about drinking and driving I thought it meant anything. My mom said that was only for adult drinks.

I used to beleive that those glasses you get with the drink names on them, u can put that drink in there and it will taste better. I still think it's true because it tastes different.

When I was 5 my grandfather had a retirement party and two 10 year olds were the only kids there besides myself. There was a cooler of soft drinks outside and they told me to go get them two root beers. Not knowing that root beer wasn't really beer I snuck outside when everyone was doing their toasts to my grandpa because I was afraid of getting sent to jail. I got the root beer back to the kids and refused to talk to them cause they were "breaking the law". My parents didn't understand this when I refused to say good-bye to them at the end of the party and told them they were bad kids and needed to be punished! Everyone thought it was funny when I explained what their crime was except me!
