When I was 12 or 13 my mom always used to let me order "virgin" pina coladas when we went out for dinner. i thought she was saying "version" until one day when I was 16 or 17 I went out with my friends and tried to order a "version" drink. my friends will never let me live that one down..

I used to believe that the devices that we used extensively would get tired, which is why we needed to turn them off. One day, it struck me that the same devices that get "tired" should also be thirsty, as I was after playing around outside.

So, I started quenching the thirst of the inanimate objects I valued, with coke, which included the telephone in the living room, my portable cassette player, my game console, and a couple of remote controlled cars (as well as several action figures.)

My mother stopped me just in time before I moved on to "help" the living room TV.

I used to be in awe when I saw the workers filling the soda cups through the take-out window, and I thought that the machines "knew" which size cup it was filling up, and that it knew when to stop when it was full!

I knew that if you waited a little bit, food and drinks would cool down. I was astonished that my cold soda kept getting warmer instead.

My best friend and I would take colored chalk and grind it down to poweder. We would them put the powdered chalk into a cup and mix in sugar and water thinking it was Kool Aid. The thing is, we drank it all too!

For probably about a decade, I believed that the chocolate drink "Yoohoo" was made with seaweed. My uncle told me it was one of the ingredients when I was about 5 years old, and I never drank it again after that. It wasn't until I was about 15 when a friend made me read the ingredient label that I realized I had been fooled all those years!

I never knew why my grandma would stir her tea, so I came to believe that stirring a drink in a circular motion would cool it down, while stirring it in a side-to-side motion would heat it up.

When I was very young I was with my parents on an evening visit to their friends house. I was playing with their daughter when I heard the blender. I saw what looked like an Icee and I very loudly insisted on having some. I quickly found out that looks can be deceiving. It may look the same but a daiquiri is NOT an Icee.

I used to believe that if I stuck my finger in a carbonated drink I could stop it from fizzing over the top of the glass and down the side. My uncle with a sense of humor convinced me of that one when I was a kid.

I used to think that pressing that "Diet" button in a soft drink cup somehow turned it into a diet soda.

When my son asked for a sip of wine one night, I told him "no, u have to be 21 to drink alcohol." So after that he assumed I was 21, which was great, until my next birthday, when he went around to his school and announced that I wasn't allowed to drink alcohol anymore! I didn't realize he thought you had to be EXACTLY 21, and all of his teachers thought I was an alcoholic!

A friend when I was younger told me that milk came from cows, but apple juice came from horses. She'd seen it with her own eyes!

Every kid in our family has been brought up with a belief that if they drink tea, their skin will turn black and only once they are adults they can drink tea. Sickness was an exception though :p

I used to believe that the ice in the bottom of a MacDonalds drink carton was poisonous. My dad told me this when I asked what it was and why you couldnt eat or drink it. I was never smart enough to take the lid off and look for myself, I just believed him!

At school, we were always taught "dont drink and drive." When my father was drinking a soda as he was driving, I freaked out.

Up until the time I actually started drinking, which was at about 14 years old, I seriously believed that only a couple sips of an alcoholic beverage could make you drunk.
When I was 14, I was at my older sister's house, and a couple of her friends were over. Mom had left for a few minutes. When mom left, my sister, 21 at the time, offered me a little bit of the Fuzzy Navel (peach-flavored wine cooler) that she was drinking. I took a couple sips and said, "If mom notices me acting funny, I'll just tell her I'm in a hyper mood." No one there bothered to tell me that I could not get drunk off just a small amount of alcohol, let alone just a wine cooler...

"And incase you're wondering, no mom was not mad, but instead let me have some at home, so I would know what it feels like, and that I would not be at some party my first time that happened)
