I used to believe that when it came to wine, women only drank white wine and men only drank red wine. This because my dad alwasy drank red wine and if my mum took a glass of wine, it was white wine. Somewhere along the road, I gave up believing this, and now that I myself drink wine of both kinds, I know how silly it is.

My brothers and I watched a pig dissection on TV when we were really little. When they cut open the pig, the liquid that came out looked like apple juice. So for a while I assumed that apple juice came from inside dead pigs.

No wonder I don't like apple juice...

I used to think you had to be 18 to drink coffee, just like you have to be 21 (in America) to drink alcohol. My reasoning for this was that I only saw adults drinking coffee when I was a young girl, and I thought that if a kid drank it he or she would get punished or even arrested. Now as a high school senior, seeing how many of my peers are hooked on Starbucks, I'm beginning to think that wouldn't be a bad idea! (Fortunately for me, I've always despised coffee.)

When I was 7, upon approaching a soda machine with my mom, I was told that Fresca was alcoholic. It turns out she did not want me drinking things with aspartame in them.

When i was little i used to believe that drinking Mountain Dew would result it being both extremely hyper and extremely bored to the point that all you could do is sit around the house screaming "I'M BORED!!! I'M BORED!!! I'M BORED!!!! I'M BORED!!!! at the top of your lungs...

When I was really little...maybe like 3 or 4, I used to believe that cups of juice magically refilled themselves, because I would finish mine and leave it on the table and then, while I was gone, my mom would refill it...so when I came back it was like magic! :-)

So, a few weeks after graduating from kindergarden, we were in the car one day when my daughter tells me, "You know, Mom, I told them at school about your drinking and driving all the time". "WHAAA? I sputtered, putting down my trusty can of coca-cola. "Yes, she said. When the who school was in that assembly and the policeman came to talk to us. He told us how bad drinking and driving is. And I told them that my Mom drinks and drives ALL THE TIME. Of course she didn't mention it was coca-cola I was drinking, and didn't tell me she had made this very public announcement until the school year was over...

My mum like tea and my dad liked coffee so I thought that women drank tea and men drank coffee. I didn't understand when my grandparents came to visit and my grandad was drinking tea and my grandma was drinking coffee. My mum explained to me but I didn't really believe her at the time.

I assumed Molotov cocktails were a kind of drink and thought it was strange that people always wanted to throw them at buildings. Until I was 17 or so.

When I was four or five, my grandmother always told me not to drink my tea with the spoon in the cup. She told me I would have an accident. It wasn't until I was in my teens that I realized that I would poke out my eye. I actually believed that I would fall down the steps or get hit by a car or some other horrible thing would happen to me.

I used to believe that when a juice package said the juice was from concentrate, that concentrate refered to a company that produced juice and I used to think "Wow, they make a lot of juice."
