I used to think that adults drank coffee because the bad taste would wake them up.
When I was in kindergarten or first grade, an older girl in the neighborhood told me that I shouldn't take a pill when I was sick because it would "go down the wrong pipe" and get stuck, making me choke. I became deathly afraid of pills and had to take either chewable or liquid medicine until I was a teenager, all because I believed that a pill would get stuck between my mouth and my belly.
I used to think that the pop machines had a person inside that would sit inside in a stool an dispense the pop to you.
Until I was 11, I used to believe that you could get drunk by drinking too much soda. One day, when I had about 3 cans of soda to drink, I ran to my mother crying "Mom! I'm sorry! I had too much soda and now I'm drunk! I'm sorry mom!"
Until I was in my mid teens, I believed that milk causes cancer in adults. My dad told me that so he could drink pepsi with dinner, even though we had to drink milk to "grow big and strong."
I used to believe when the say "don't drink & drive" you couldn't drink anything while driving..so I seen my mom drinking a soda and I said "you're going to go to jail" and she told me what "don't drink & drive" really means lol
when I was little, I was told that my Grandmother told me that drinking soda from a can put metal around my brain......i beleived that until i was ten...
When I was younger, I believed that drinking and driving meant drinking water or anything. I used to yell at my mom for drinking diet coke when she drove.
Not understanding the difference between "pitcher" and "picture" I was told that a "pitcher" of water was called that because there was a hidden "picture" inside....i believed this for years and would always frustrate myself never being able to find any hidden pictures through the glass of water..haha
When I was little my sister told me that if you drank milk and soda together you'd explode. I never drank both on the same day.
My uncle told me that if i didn't shake the orange juice container before I opened it that it would explode. I ALWAYS made sure to shake it before opening it!
You know how on the menu at restaurants, how they say "with refill"? Well, when I was young, I thought that said rifle. So I thought restaurants gave out free rifles with soda. Yes, this is true.
Folger's catch phrase was, " the best part of waking up, is Folgers in your cup" and I always thought they were saying, " the best part of waking up is SOLDIERS in your cup" so every time my dad was making coffee and not looking I would stick my hand in the canister and search for toy soldiers.
When I was a little girl, my mom told me that it was "against the law" for children to drink beverages that contained caffeine. In kindergarten, my best friend was drinking Coke and I tried to get her to stop because I thought she'd be arrested.
when i was little my mom told me that mountain dew was donkey pee and i didnt drink it foy YEARS!!!!EWWWW!!
When I was around 8 or 9 years old, I went over a friend's house and I saw that there were tons of cans laying around her back yard by the BBQ pit. They were Red Bull cans, but I thought they were beer cans because they looked a lot like what my parents and their friends drink. When I asked my friend about them, she told me her dad drinks at least five a day. After that I was a little scared to go over her house when her dad was home because I thought he was an alcoholic!
I thought the little push indicators on the top of a fountain drink lid actually changed the flavors of the drink when u pushed them; I would never push the diet one.
I used to believe that coffee was tea with milk in it.
Growing up, I always heard the term "alcoholic" said with the word "beverage." I therefore thought that beverage was a term for an alcoholic drink. When we would stop at a gas station I would refuse to get a drink if the sign above the drinks said "Beverages." I thought it was for adults only. One time I saw my grandmother get a ginger ale from the Beverages section of a gas station and because I had also heard the term ale in regards to alcoholic drinks, I came to the conclusion that ginger ale was alcoholic.
It took me years to learn otherwise. All those times I declined a sip of ginger ale, she probably thought I just wasn't thirsty or didn't want her germs.
I thought she was trying to offer me a sip of booze!
I used to believe that "other" was another name for water, because that was what the lids at Burger King said.
