My brother and I use to drink orange squash which was said to contain 5% orange juice. We figured that if we drank 20 glasses of orange squash, it would be as good as eating one orange and therefor very healthy for you. If an apple a day kept the doctor away, why wouldn't the same apply to an orange? Therefor 20 glasses of orange squash would also keep the doctor away! It's obvious, isn't it?!
As teenagers, back in the 1950s, we were told that taking aspirin with Coke would make us drunk. An awful lot of kids believed that, but (as an adult) I used to take aspirin with Coke all the time...with NO effects!
I grew up in a non-acoholic family. So, the day my mom decided to rinse my hair with beer after washing it, I cried terribly while she had me leaning over the sink. (Crying upside down hurts the sinuses!) She got so perplexed with me for crying until I told her that I didn't want to get drunk. I thought for sure that her rinising my hair with beer would make me that way.
When I was a child, I couldn't understand why "grown-ups" would not order a "Free" refill of coffee instead of paying 50 cents for a cup.(..From a menu)
My friend, at age 15, thought that his drink was too sweet. So he poured some out in the garbage to get rid of some of the sugar. He wondered why it was still just as sweet...
Whenever my family took road trip vacations I used to believe that the bottles of yellow liquid on the side of the interstate were half drank containers of apple juice.
It was only much later that I figured out they were depositories of urine from lazy truckers.
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)
My Sister Goldie Used To Believe If You Drink Too Much Soda Your Bones Would Shrink.
She Stopped Drinking Soda For A While.
She Drinks Soda Now
i used to believe that black coffee would make black hair grow on my chest. i got this from a cousin who said that's what happened to one of our aunts who had a little extra facial hair!
When I was lil, my babysitter made me some lemonade in a white-yellowish Tupperware bowl. I thought it was the same bowl that was at the bottom of my training toilet. I thought she was trying to poison me. It was a very hot day, but I still wouldn't drink it.
I used to believe that the reflection at the bottom of cup of liquid was a crocodile waiting to gobble me up.
When I was Little, my dad told me that if someone drank coffe, they'd grow hair in their nose. Well, I went with my parents to a restaurant, and sat next to my Mom. When the waiter brought her a cup of coffee, I watched her drink some, then I cocked my head and started staring up her nose. She asked me what I was looking at, so I told her what Dad said.
When I was like 6, I attempted to make lemonade by mixing lemon juice with sugar. It tasted bad so I added more sugar. I refused to believe that you needed water.
I thought that little people worked inside can machines and that a wee light came on inside when you pushed the button so they knew what can to give you.
Since adults liked to drink alcohol so much, I figured it must be the most delicious drink ever. When I had my First Communion at 7 years old I took a sip of the wine and was horrified. It was the most disgusting thing I had ever tasted! I could barely make myself swallow the sip. After that I really didn't know why anyone would voluntarily drink alcohol. Now I know better.
That you had to be a male to drink beer.
My Grandfather told me that to make beer the companies poured it in a huge open-air vat and waited until the devil came and jumped through it. Then they bottled it and sold it. Guess what I still don't drink!
my family always used to go to this comic book/cafe place before they got sued. i always got chocolate milk, and the waitresses and my parents had me believing that they had a chocolate cow in behind the counter making it.
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 a child, I thought that alcoholic beverages came in four distinct strengths, and were named accordingly. The four categories, in increasing order of strength were: Beer, wine, whisky, and liquor. Where I live, one has to go to "liquor stores" to buy any distilled spirits. One day I asked my father why one has to go to liquor stores to buy whisky. He then told me that whisky is a type of liquor. I was so disillusioned. I had always thought that wisky was a separate category, not as strong as liquor.
