I'm a tea lover and when I first met my now husband he wouldn't touch the stuff.
When he was a child his mother told him tea was a woman's drink and if boys drank it, it shrunk their wee-wee's!! Poor thing, there he was 20 years old and he still believed it!
When I was a pre-schooler, my older brother made me promise never to drink cold liquid from mugs (rather than glasses), as it would dry my mouth out and make me be sick. I still feel uncomfortable if I am obliged to drink anything other than tea or coffee from a mug.
When I was younger, I thought cows and horses were opposites...So it was obvious to me that cows made milk, and horses made orange juice, because to me, orange juice and milk were opposites too...
My uncle told me that if i didn't shake the orange juice container before I opened it that it would explode. I ALWAYS made sure to shake it before opening it!
I used to believe that if I shook a bottle of water as fast as I could I would be able to carbonate it like soda.
i was sitting with grandma one scortching hot day, she had a glass of ice water. she told me the condensation on the outside of the glass was water seeping through the glass. i believed this one until about a year ago. teehee
When I was pretty young my favorite drink was Mountain Dew... right up until my sister told me it was mountain goat pee. It took me a few years to start drinking it again.
i thought that soft drinks in America would explode in a person's mouth bocause they call it 'pop'.
In my religon, we are taught not to drink caffien, that it is bad for your body. Due to this, i grew up thinking caffien and alchahol were the same thing. I put drinks like pepsi and coke in the same catagory as beer and wine.
Anyway, one day we had a party at school, and there was pizza and pop. The pop was pepsi! i was astounded that they would serve an alchoholic drink at school. When i went home i was trying to tell my mom about it, but i forgot what drink it was so i told her it was beer! "Are you sure it wasnt root beer?" she said. "No!" i said, "it was the kind of beer with alchohol in it!"
When I was a kid I noticed that my Grandfather and my Uncles had crooked teeth and the thing they all had in common was that they drank beer. So I came to the conclusion that if you drink beer it will give you crooked teeth.
I used to believe that Dad's (brand) Root Beer was ONLY for dads, not anyone else. One time when I was about six, I REALLY wanted a root beer, but ended up getting another kind of soda because I wasn't a dad, and I knew I'd get in trouble for drinking that root beer since I wasn't qualified.
I used to believe it was illegal to drink and drive because when you drink from a cup your head is tilted back and you can't see the road. So I thought drinking ANYTHING was illegal.
When I was little I always wondered why the water at McDonald's tasted so strange. My dad told me that it's because McDonalds used old dishwater.
For years I pictured McDonald's employees, mad that I didn't buy a soda, scooping up used water out of a dishwasher.
(Now I know it's because the water comes out of the same tap as pop.)
I used to think that if you mixed a diet drink with a regular drink, it would explode.
I used to believe that drinking anything that was red-- kool aid,fruit punch or tomato juice, gave you more blood
all the adults around me when i was little drank coffee but my mum said that if children drank coffee they would grow tails. i believed this for years.
When I was younger I thought that the popping sound in my soda was tons of people clapping. Then I felt bad after I drank the soda.
My brothers and I watched a pig dissection on TV when we were really little. When they cut open the pig, the liquid that came out looked like apple juice. So for a while I assumed that apple juice came from inside dead pigs.
No wonder I don't like apple juice...
There was this juice brand called "Hi-C," and I thought it said "hic," as in hiccups.
(Hyphens make differences.)
When I was about 10, and had just become a vegetarian, my older sister told me that they used pig's blood in the cola at McDonalds. I totally believed her and didn't drink cola from McDonalds until I was 12. Only then did my mum tell me that there was a law preventing that kind of thing. I still feel stupid about it now!
