I used to think that all sodas/pop, had caffeine.

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...

Why do cups hate 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!

I used to believe that drinking and driving applied to every drink. I pointed this out to Mom when I was seven. She nearly spat out her coffee.

In my religon, we are taught not to drink caffien, that it is bad for your body. Due to this, i grew up thinking caffien and alchahol were the same thing. I put drinks like pepsi and coke in the same catagory as beer and wine.
Anyway, one day we had a party at school, and there was pizza and pop. The pop was pepsi! i was astounded that they would serve an alchoholic drink at school. When i went home i was trying to tell my mom about it, but i forgot what drink it was so i told her it was beer! "Are you sure it wasnt root beer?" she said. "No!" i said, "it was the kind of beer with alchohol in it!"

When I was little, I thought that ladies were supposed to drink wine and men were supposed to drink beer. I also knew that alcohol was bad for you, so one night I assured my mom that when I grew up, I would drink "only" one bottle of wine each day (I figured that one bottle was one serving, since one can of beer is one serving of beer). My mom was so horrified that she made me promise never to drink it at all.

Years later, she supervised my first drinking experience. I suspect she was comforted when I came to the conclusion that alcohol tastes utterly vile anyway.

I used to believe that when you shook a soda bottle ( like a liter size) it would explode and flood the whole room. so i decided that i wanted a explosion of sprite, so i took a liter of sprite (unopened) and shook as much as i could, and when i opened it, it exploded all in my face. and unfortunately not flooding the whole room
