My brother told me that you could tell how fat someone was by how dark their chocolate milk was...so I thought if I added less syrup to the milk, I'd lose weight.
I used to think that if you drank too much milk and had a nosebleed, your blood would be white.
When I was a little girl I remember learning that babies were given "formula" to drink from their bottle. I thought I would like to be a Mom some day, but I was worried because I didn't know what the "formula" was. I wasn't sure that I would be good enough at chemistry to make the correct "formula" for my baby. I eventually learned that there was no magic equation for this formula. Maybe that whole misconception is what helped me decide it was best and easiest to nurse my babies!
I always thought when I was a kid that Milo is for boys and that milk are for girls. . .
that black women breastfed chocolate milk instead of white milk
when i was little, i used to love pink, and my dad told me that he once was a little girl, but he drank too much chocolate milk and turned into a little boy. i had 2 older brothers and they would always have chocolate milk. it was a long time before my mum could convince me that it was safe to drink strawberry or chocolate milk!
When I was a kid, I used to believe chocolate milk came from chocolate frogs-curse my convincing aunt and gullible mind!!
When I was little I used to believe that we got milk from dandelions instead of cows because of the milky stuff that is in their stems.
When I was a little kid, I used think that chocolate milk came from brown cows, and white milk only came from black and white cows. I also thought strawberry milk came from pink cows, and so on.
I used to believe that cows automatically produce milk all the time, and that they don't mind humans taking it. Not until I was 24 I learned that they have to give birth to a calf to produce milk, just like other mammals...
When I was in kindergarten we had little cartons of milk every day at snack time. I would sit and drink my milk and read the side of the carton, which listed all the products made by that company, including chocolate milk, buttermilk, etc.
I thought the list was actually the ingredients of what I was drinking, that it was a mixture of all those things, and was convinced that I could taste the butter and the chocolate in my milk!
I used to believe whenever you drank milk, the milk would wash over your bones and which would absorb the good stuff in milk, and that's how you'd grow up big and strong.
I thought that men drank their coffee black and women drank their coffee with milk. When I saw my Army Major Uncle drink coffee with milk, I could not believe that he drank like a woman.
When I was little, I was drinking some chocolate milk. My brother told me that when people drink milk, farmers would have to chop down trees to make room for more cows to produce milk. If we kept drinking lots of milk, all the trees in the world would be chopped down to make room for cows. And since trees make oxygen for us to breathe, if all the trees got chopped down, we wouldn't be able to breathe and we'd all die.
i used to think the water tower was filled with milk
When I was about three my preschool teachers dyed the milk green for St. Patrick's day, and told us that it was the leprechauns. I was also, at this time, horrible afriad of any liquid the color green because the little "Mr. Yuck" sticker for posions was green. Well I thought that that meant poison was green and green meant poison. I wouldn't drink teh milk because i thought the leprechauns poisoned it.
I'm still afraid of leprechauns and green milk.
Chocolate, they say, rots your teeth. I believed if you drank chocolate milk, your bones would be brown.
when i was little i knew that breast milk came from breasts, but i thuoght it was de-hydrated milk powder, and you had to drink lots of water to get milk.And i thought it was the same stuff that came in gallons at the store, and the inside of dandelions.
Since I was told that milk was good for your teeth, I used to tilt the glass of milk to my lips so that the milk would barely enter my mouth and hold it there and soak my teeth in milk as long as I could for a brighter smile!
when i was little i found out that grown up women could spray milk out of their brests, so whenever my mom asked me if i wanted a glass of milk i thought she would go behind the counter and take her shirt off and spray it from her boob. Iwas over at a friends house and my friends mom asked me if i wanted some milk and i said "sure, do you need some help spraying it out of your boobie, like my mommy does?"...i never went over to little sara's house again.
