When I was a little boy, my mom was VERY health concious. In the grocery store, I asked my mom to buy some Kool Aid. She refused, saying that it was bad for your teeth. I said, "Then why do they even MAKE it?". She said, "For people who want their teeth to rot.". I took her 100% literally and was horrified to think that there were people in the world who actually WANTED their teeth to rot and would buy a product specifically made for that purpose!

While out shopping with my parents at age 3 or 4, I saw a sign that said "beverages" and I assumed that this was some sort of term for a more grown-up person - at least 8 or 9 years old. When my mother told me to run ahead and pick out some juice, I was very worried that I would be arrested or yelled at for going down the "beverages" aisle when I had very clearly not yet reached a "bever age".

Up until a few years ago, I thought that Cafe Au Lait (french for coffee with milk) was spelled exactly like it was pronounced, ie Cafe Ole.

I thought that matadors must have invented this or drink this alot because it was named after the cheer for their sport

My dad used to drink Mountain Dew like it was going out of style and for some reason, one day he told me it is was panther piss. I looked on the ingredients and when I informed my father of this he told me they couldn't do that or no one would buy it.I believed that it was at least partially true and when I was about 16 and at Taco Bell drive-thru I ordered a 'medium panther piss'. Needless to say I didn't get a mountain dew. When I was about 19 somehow the discussion about it came up and my father almost had a heart attack when he found out that I actually believed him.

My dad told me that Elvis Presley died from guzzling down drinks (non alcoholic ones) in an effort to teach me not to guzzle my drinks

one of my friend's mother used to only buy diet coke, never regular coke. she had by the case, so there was always plenty. since there was no real soft drinks, when we hung out at his house we would drink her diet cokes. she didn't like us drinking them, so she told us that diet coke gave kids under 10 cancer. we never drank them again.

There was this one time when me and my sister were staring at a bottle of Diet Mountaindew on the table. Naturally, I went to grab it first but not until my older sister goes "You know, Diet Soda turns you into a skeleton if you're not fat." I was terrified and took a second glance at the Diet Mountaindew. Her little lie worked, unfortunately for me. I didn't drink any Diet drinks until I was I teen.

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.

When I was 2nd-3rd grade, I use to believe that drinking Gatorade would turn your blood into the color of that drink. Drinking green Gatorade would turn your blood green, etc..

My mother used to tell me not to drink soda in the morning or I would get a stomach ache. I held this belief until I was in college and even told my girlfriend not to have her morning diet coke because of this.

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. I was the only kid among the waiting adults and so I went to the free coffee area and made myself a cup of java...believing that all the grown-ups would now think "Gee...he must be much older than we originally thought."

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!
