I thought that the phrase "lactose intolerant" was "lack toastandtolerant" (Yes one big word) for the LONGEST time.
Milk made your bones stronger by coating them and adding another layer of bone on top, so if I drank too much milk my bones would get too thick and clunk together and I'd be frozen.
when i was younger, my mom used to ask me if i wanted some skim milk and i always thought she was saying skin milk, and that is was made from cow skin!
When I was little I thought that skim milk was actually called skin milk. I also thought that it was made from the cows skin.
When i was little I used to think that if you opened a milk carton on the wrong end you would get arrested
I was told the milk was good for your teeth so naturally I used to swish it around in my mouth. I guess I was trying to coat my teeth until my Mom saw me doing it and explained how milk was helping me grow strong bones and teeth...Ahhhhhhhhh
I thought that elmers glue was made from milk, since it had that cow on the glue bottle.
When I was younger I was always told that milk is very good for my teeth. So I'd drink a lot of fresh milk, but not in the usual way.......I used to take a sip then swish it around my mouth like mouthwash, making sure to reach every little bit of my mouth. Then when it was warm , I'd swallow it. I thought that this was the only way my teeth could get the "goodness" from the milk! The milk came straight from the fridge too, so I'd always get a brain freeze!!! DOH! :-)
When I was 4, with a new baby brother, I was told the baby drank milk when breast-feed. I assumed and believed for years that there were two because one was chocolate milk.
when i was little my parents always told me dairy
came from cows, considering this includes a wide variety of food besides milk i thought since cow utters had many nipples there was one for cheese another one for yogurt and so on,
that cottage cheese came from the roofs of cottages
i used to believe strawberry milkshakes use to come out of red cows
When I was little I used to live across from a farm and when I'd see that one cow jumped up on the back of another cow I thought that he was giving him a tow because he ran out of milk.
All kids in Texas in the 50s & 60s knew that eating cherries and milk together would kill you. My wife, a kid in Germany at that time, knew this too.
Cadbury used to heavily advertise that every block of chocolate had "a glass and a half of full cream milk." I spent an entire summer pouring a glass and a half down the sink convinced that it would magically turn into a block of chocolate. Until my mother caught and explained the realities of advertising.
sterilised milk came from bulls
I used to believe that if IŽd drink
milk, my dark hair would change to blond. That what my mother told when I was 6 years old. I got very angry by the time I found out it was a lie!!!
On the way to summer camp, my 10 year old declared she now knew where low fat milk came from. Standing in the field as we passed was a very skinny looking cow.
When I was little I thought mixing milk and water together was my invention (called "milkwater", creatively enough). My dad always would drink milkwater and tell me how smart I was for coming up with such a delicious drink. I never realized I wasn't a culinary genius until at 6 or so I went over to a friend's house and my friend drank milkwater and I got upset that she didn't give me credit for it.
Of course, later I talked to my dad and he said he hated how it tasted and it was just a ploy to get me to drink milk.
I learned early in my life that the U.S. state of Wisconsin is a big producer of dairy products. At that time the first syllable of that state's name still vaguely ran together in my mind with the word "Swiss", so I thought that Wisconsin was the place of origin of Swiss cheese.
