My dad told me that if I drank coffee, my feet would turn black.....I wonder if that had anything to do with me never acquiring a taste for the stuff?

When I was about 6 I remember our whole family going to the house of friends of the family. My older brother was drinking this black liquid with his friend. I wanted to try some. They told me that it was a drink called Aloc Acoc and that is was poisonous to me. Of course I was mystified by how they could drink it and looked up to them both....until I discovered the empty Coca Cola bottle......I was a simple 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.

When I was 8, a doctor told me that I had to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I got upset and pretty worried. When my mom asked what was wrong, I said I didn't want to have to drink 30 glasses of water a day when I was 30 or 31 glasses a day when I was 31 years old!

i used to believe that in the bottom of a can of dr. pepper was a teeny, tiny little doctor with a pepper shaker in his chest pocket of his doctor's coat. i'd always look for it after i drank a can, thinking i must've already swallowed it, when i couldn't see it in the bottom of the empty can.

I used to believe that tap water came from the bottom of tap dancer's shoes, so I always ordered bottled water!

When we were younger, my brother, me, and some school-friends used to believe that tea is made from leaves on hedges - especially privet hedge leaves, because they look like the leaves on the PG Tips box. We used to pluck leaves from the hedges at school and get told off for 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.

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.

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.

My mother used to tell me if I drank too much water I would float away. I wanted to see if this would actually happen. So I deliberately drank a lot of water. I imagined a stream of water lifting me up and taking me away. Needless to say, it never happened.

When I was two or three, I used to refuse to drink any liquids that had been sitting for too long because I thought the devil put poison in it when I was not looking. No one told me this about the devil. I just came to that conclusion with my morbid little mind.

I used to misread "serve chilled" as "serve child" on lemonade bottles. I thought lemonade was made for kids so it was a serving suggestion.

I used to think when you drank Pepsi in the winter it would make holes in your stomach. That's what my dad told me ages ago to discourage me from drinking so much of it, even though my mom drinks a lot of it. I can't even fully convince my 20-year-old self that this isn't so.
