At my grandparents house was a cupboard with
containing bottles of spirits. One bottle
that particularly fascinated me was labelled
Teacher's Whisky and I used to think that all
the teachers at school drank it. One day I
poured myself a cupful of Teacher's Whisky and
drank it in a large gulp. The taste was absolutely
vile and it felt like my mouth was on fire. For
many years after that I reckoned that the nasty
taste of Teacher's Whisky was why most of the
teachers at my school were so nasty.

I used to believe that if you drank a soda with your popcorn, your stomach would swell up and try to force it back out. Believed it for a while too. Now I know better.
As I child I always waited for the fizz to go down in my soft drinks before drinking them. But one day, in a fit of curiosity and bravery, I decided to drink my Coke sooner--only to find the bubbles never did go down, and the soda tasted funny too. For years I believed having the bubbles get stuck in the glass was the natural consequence of drinking your soda too soon, and was pretty close to adulthood when I realized I'd just gotten a soapy glass that day!
When I asked my sister why Mountain Dew was yellow she told me it was because it was made with Mountain Goat pee. Oddly enough, this thrilled me, because I liked goats, and I thought that drinking Mountain Dew would give me special powers to climb mountains and join them.
1977 was a very hot and dry year in Britain and it was then on day in summer that my Dad, who had been outin the garden for a while, convinced us that the lemonade left in the fridge was 'grown up' lemonade. We littleuns just had water.
I was about six years old and sitting in a doctor's waiting room while my mom was getting examined.

When I was lil, my babysitter made me some lemonade in a white-yellowish Tupperware bowl. I thought it was the same bowl that was at the bottom of my training toilet. I thought she was trying to poison me. It was a very hot day, but I still wouldn't drink it.
When my daughter was very young, (3 or 4 years old), she overheard her Father and I talking about a friend of ours and I said, "Well, you know, he doesn't drink!" My daughter wondered for many years after, how this person could live without ever drinking!

When my brother was around seven or eight he developed a strange obsession with orange juice. At one stage he was drinking so much of it we began to get rather concerned. The truth was finally revealed one morning when my mum spotted him carefully examining a carton. 'Mum', he said. 'If I drink loads of long-life orange, do you think I'll have a REALLY long life?'
I was told by a friend that cherry cola was made from the bodies of red ants and consequently spent a good hour staring into a bottle of said drink to check if there were any in there. There was no indication of whether black ants contributed to Guiness or if lime cordial was the product of greenfly.
I used to think that 'Dilute to taste' meant that if you didn't add water you couldn't taste it. One day I downed a glass full of undiluted Ribena and realised my error.
I used to play a handheld video game on long road trips with my family. The only time that I was able to beat the game is when I was drinking mello-yello. So that soft drink had to be good luck for me.
