My mother was going to have a friend over who was a recovering alcoholic. The day before, she warned my father, "Whatever you do, don't offer her a drink." The next day, my father wasn't home. When the firend arrived, my mom asked me, "Won't you get Mrs. X a nice glass of lemonade?" and I immediately responded: "But mommy, you said we weren't supposed to let her drink anything!"
I used to believe that Dr. Pepper actually tastes like Black pepper. I'm still afraid to try it.
I used to believe that since only adults were allowed to drink wine and other alcohol that it must the most delicious thing in the world. When I had my First Communion at age 7 I was excited that I would get to take a sip of wine. When I drank it, I froze in horror. It was the most disgusting thing I had ever tasted. I wanted to spit it out, but I knew I couldn't do that in church. After that I was very wary about foods that adults loved.
My cousin convinced me that Mountain Dew soda was made when hillbillies climbed up into trees and peed down into buckets. For many years I wouldn't drink Mountain Dew because of this.
when i was younger my mam told me she couldn't drink because she was pregnant. i thought she meant every drink and said 'wouldn't you get thirsty?'
i was 3
I used to think that adults drank coffee because the bad taste would wake them up.
My little sister (not a native English speaker) thought that the name of the "7-Up"soda is actually Zup, and the pronunciation "sevenup" is just one of the irregularities of the English language.
Until I was 11, I used to believe that you could get drunk by drinking too much soda. One day, when I had about 3 cans of soda to drink, I ran to my mother crying "Mom! I'm sorry! I had too much soda and now I'm drunk! I'm sorry mom!"
When i was a little boy , my parents used to tell me:" Drink this soup and you will grow up". But now I'm very sad , because I don't think it's was true. Today I'm still small. Today I understand : All parents want us to eat vegetables for our well-being. But if Ikeep on eating vegetable , I will become green , not tall ...
My dad used to bring me a cup of earl grey tea before he went to work each morning. I always thought it was normal tea that tasted funny because my Dad had dropped some of his aftershave into it by accident. Now I know its just poncy tea!
I used to believe that the ice in the bottom of a MacDonalds drink carton was poisonous. My dad told me this when I asked what it was and why you couldnt eat or drink it. I was never smart enough to take the lid off and look for myself, I just believed him!
My friend used to believe that Pepsi naturally came from the ground like water and it too had to be bottled at the source. She was 17 when I tried to convince her that she was wrong.
At my grandparents house was a cupboard with
containing bottles of spirits. One bottle
that particularly fascinated me was labelled
Teacher's Whisky and I used to think that all
the teachers at school drank it. One day I
poured myself a cupful of Teacher's Whisky and
drank it in a large gulp. The taste was absolutely
vile and it felt like my mouth was on fire. For
many years after that I reckoned that the nasty
taste of Teacher's Whisky was why most of the
teachers at my school were so nasty.
When I was younger I used to drink diet coke all the time because that was what my mom drank and I wanted to be like her. I used to think that if I were to pour the coke on the ground then a coke tree would grow and I could pick coke cans off of the tree and drink the coke out of there. I believed this for years!
When I was about 3 years old, Gatorade was only available in one flavor - my mom had always told me that Gatorade came from squeezing gators - we live in the South, so this made sense to me - however, we were in the grocery one day, and lo and behold, new flavors of Gatorade. She says that I turned to her, put one hand on my hip, gestured toward the juices with the other, and said, "How do you explain all of these?" She did - some come from southern gators, some come from northern gators, and some comes from crocodiles.
When I was very young I was with my parents on an evening visit to their friends house. I was playing with their daughter when I heard the blender. I saw what looked like an Icee and I very loudly insisted on having some. I quickly found out that looks can be deceiving. It may look the same but a daiquiri is NOT an Icee.
I thought the little push indicators on the top of a fountain drink lid actually changed the flavors of the drink when u pushed them; I would never push the diet one.
I used to think prune juice was called "pooin' juice", because you drank it when you were constipated. I thought the name sounded totally nasty!
I used to believe that the RB button on drink lids meant the drink was for me. My first name starts with R and the nickname for my middle name starts with B. I then realized that it was for root beer.
You know those plastic lids that are put on your soda when you go to a fast-food restaurant? How they have those little raised buttons that say "Diet", "Orange", "Root Beer", etc.? I used to think that pushing those buttons could change the flavor of my soda.
"I want my Sprite to turn to... orange soda," I'd decide, and push the "Orange" button down.
It never seemed to work (the taste didn't change), and honestly I couldn't explain how it *would* work. But I couldn't figure out what else the buttons might be used for, and so the belief persisted for many years. I still have never seen those buttons used for their intended purpose.
