When my brother was about 8 or 9, he thought that if you mixed soft drinks, you would get mixed drinks. He was convinced that if he mixed too much Sprite with Rootbeer he would get drunk...

I used to believe that when drinking chocolate milk, which I mixed with a spoon, that I could refill the empty cup afterwards by dabbing the spoon towards the bottom of the cup. I saw that milk gathered around the spoon into a tiny drop, and believed new milk was created! It would only be a matter of me dabbing the spoon enough times to refill the cup...

I used to think root beer had eggs in it. I had read a story in which the main character hated eggs, and told her mom she would never eat another egg. So later, when she wanted a root beer float, her mom said she couldn't have one because it had eggs in it.
And somehow, I missed the "float" part, and thought she couldn't have root beer 'cos it had eggs in it. Truly. I thought, "Oh, maybe that's why it's foamy." The sad thing is that a little tiny part of me, while I know that no eggs are harmed in the making of root beer, senses an eggyness about root beer. Which is just odd, I know.

top belief!

In kindergarden, I read the side of juice boxes as 'Best Served Child' as they were stictly for children and thought this was very nice of the people who made a product just for kids - grown ups were not to drink it as it said so on the side of the box!
Years later I realised that it said 'Chillled', not 'Child'.

When I was really little, I thought that a 12-ounce can of soda was a magical, bottomless container, and that was why I was never allowed to drink from the can, and always made to drink rom a cup or glass.

I loved soda pop SO much when I was little, and resented that drinking fountains only spurted out water. So when I heard about "soda fountains," I thought that maybe someday, my school would get sensible and install fountains that spurted out the flavored pop of your choice.

My dad and mom used to own a restaurant and i was very clumsy so i'd always knock down cups from my table. I used to get so upset and so would my mom. I used to think that all cups hated me...

I used to believe that my mom was a magical demon who wanted to poison me with orange juice that had smallpox. For years I hated orange juice and the first time i tried it, I had her drink it first, and, on sheer chance, I had food poisoning. The next time I tried O.J. was when I had a lot of homework due the next day and forgot my books. I was in big trouble. I later developed a craving for the stuff.

When I was 3 or 4 my older sister would always press the correct bump on the top of fast food drink lids (Coke, Diet, Other) to mark which was hers. When I asked her what she did it for, she told me some bumps made the straw harder to drink out of. Everytime I pressed mine down she told me it was the wrong one, but someday I would get it right.

About the age of 7, whenever my mum drank tea/coffee, i asked her if i could have some and she used to reply

"no, if you drink tea or coffee you will turn black"

Obviously believing this to be true i didn't drink tea or coffee for bout 10 years,

until one day, when i decided to take my chances and made myself some tea!! now i love the stuff!
