My Mother used to drink coffee all the time. In the winter she said it warmed her, which I could understand. In the summer she said it cooled her, which she explained to me was caused because by putting hot liquid in her, it caused her body to go into "cool down" mode to conteract it.

when I was in college, I have a colleague who is from the country side of the city, when I was waiting in line at the water fountain i said to him seriously "you know what the water we are drinking was just going in circles and we are drinking the same water over and over again" he looked at me and said "really I never thought of that, thnaks anyway for the info" from that day on he never drunk from the water fountain because he thought It was true.

After few years we met again and asked me if its really true about the water fountain, I was surprised that he still remembers what I said, and I told him that is wasnt true at all I just want you to hurry up so I can get my turn.

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 5 or 6 my grandparents had some friend of theirs drop in during the afternoon. He was stumbling around the kitchen and fell into the frying pan, and my grandparents told me he was blind and couldn't see. Years later I asked my gramma who that blind guy was. She figured out a while later this was some neighbour who had gotten really drunk and been kicked out of his house by his wife. They told me he was blind so I wouldn't know he was so drunk. I never even guessed.

Up until someone explained what alchohol did to you, and that it is called "drinking", I never understood what people had against "drinking" in certian situations, like in the car.

I remember saying to some adult friend of my Grandfather's: "why can't you drink in your car? Grandpa lets me drink in the car all the time?" He laughed out loud... Of course I was talking about pop or juice, but I can see now how this would have been a funny statement.

I used to believe that when people said that they "didn't drink", that they really didn't drink...anything, ever!. No water, milk, soda, etc...
I used to see/hear this on TV shows a lot. "No thanks, I don't drink."

I was flabbergasted!

i used to believe that soda bottles, like a 2 liter Coke bottle wasnt actually full of coke, i thought it was just the top, the sides, and the bottom were dark colored and there was air in the space between.

For years, Seven-up was one of the only cokes on the market that didn't have caffeine in it, and because they advertised it on the label, and that was the only coke that Mama would allow me to have, I called it "no-caffeine" for years.

When I was little my grandfather told me the pulp in orange juice was fly wings. I lived in Hawaii so everyday at school I would catch as many flies as I could and pull their wings off so they couldn't put them in the orange juice anymore. I remember having flies running around my desk before they eventually died because I had pulled off their wings, but it was better than having to drink them in the juice.

When i was about nine, i used to go around my best friend's house nearly everyday. Occasionally her dad would drink alcohol, but her mum always told him off because they had a 'young guest' (me). Consequently, he would hide his liquor in old Detox bottles, and my friend and i would sometimes see him drinking from them. For several years after that, i believed that bleach was a refreshing drink- thank god i never tried it!
