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!

When I was little I would get a drink of soda from the fridge, and my dad would remind me to be sure I put the cap back on the soda or it will go flat. One day I put the cap on the soda bottle very lose. then I would check the sode every hour or so to see if the cap itself would go flat.

I used to believe that drink driving was drinking and driving at the same time and so my mum was shocked when she started to drink a milkshake and i screamed at her that she was going to get caught by the cops.

When i was a little girl of 5 years, my dad was very interested in Tai Chi. He would do his excersizes and then get himself something to drink and sit with me. One time he was making juice and I asked him what kind it was. He told me it was concentrated juice, like the ones in the can where you add water. My daddy asked why I wasn't having any juice, and I replied "But that's your juice to help you concentrate!" thinking of the hard Tai Chi excersizes he was doing and how he told me and my brother never to bother him while he was doing them...hehe

I used to think that 7-Up was called "Zup" until I realised the "Z" was actually a Seven!

I used to think that if you mixed a diet drink with a regular drink, it would explode.

When I was young I used to believe that if you took an asprin and drank a coke real fast you'd get drunk. I never knew anyone daring enough to try it.

When I was little my best friend and I believed that if we drank each others drinks our voices would change to the other person. For example if I drank her drink after she drank it my voice would sound like hers.

top belief!

When I was 5 my mother and I were riding in the car, somehow I managed to drop my can of pop. I went to open it, and my mother quickly stopped me from doing so and explained to me that my pop would explode if I opened it. Well you can imagine what was running through my head... she then said I would just need to tap the top of the can with my finger for a little while. So some time had passed, about a half hour probably longer... and my mother looked in the back seat... I was still tapping the pop... my mom said it is fine to open it now... well at that point I burst into tears... and explained to her that I didn't want it to explode and we should just get rid of it. To this day... I will never forget the fear I experienced on that car ride, and every time I tap my pop, I remember sitting in the back seat of that car thinking I had something explosive in my hands.
