As a kid I was told that if I drank coffee I would get fleas in my stimach, because coffe was for grown ups only. I still do not like coffe, and whenever i drink it I imagine little gnats filling my stomach. I am 23 now.

When I was little, I used to think 'mulled wine' was actually 'mould wine' and I would wonder why on earth anyone would want to drink it!

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 younger i saw a movie where there was a gathering at a park type place and a thing full of grape coolaid was there for everyone to drink. Well i dont remember why but someone had poisoned the coolaid. Needless to say i was afraid of grape coolaid for years after, i wouldn't even drink or eat anything grape flavored for a while.

I was shaking a bottle of apple juice one day, and my sister told me that if you shake apple juice, it becomes poisonous. I got so scared because I had taken a drink before that and I thought I had just poisoned myself and I was going to die.

When I was growing up, my best friend and went to the same pediatrician. Therefore we thought it was perfectly safe for us to drink out of the same glass since we "shared the same germs". I don't know which one of us came up with that idea, but we both believed it.

Once when I was four years old, my mom and I were having dinner. Someone had told me before that grape juice stains(probably talking about clothes, of course). Along with dinner I was drinking a glass of grape juice. Just to clear the confusion, I asked my mom if grape juice stained, which of course, she said yes. Well I had gotten grape juice on my upper lip. Being as I was four years old, I started bawling my head off and ran to the bathroom to wash it off so it wouldn't stain my upper lip!

When I was a kid I remember hearing the recommendation to drink 8 glasses of water a day. For some reason I didn't get the "a day" part, so i thought i had to drink it all at once. That seemed impossible to me so I gave it a try one day, chugging water as quickly as I could, and got sick by about the second or third glass.

I use to think you only got orange soda from a happy meal and that the only type of drink you got with a happy meal was orange since that is the only time my mom would let me have it.

My Grandmama always told me that if I drank coffe it would rust my gizzard. I never drank coffee because of her telling me that, and today I still haven't drank any although I know that we don't have gizzards!

I used to believe my mom when she told me that if I would get terribly sick if I drank milk and then soda, one after the other. I now believe she told me this because she didn't want us kids drinking a large amount of expensive milk and soda rather than ordinary water.
