When my daughter was little she was afraid to go near the back door. We finally discovered it was because she was afraid the stopper wouldn't work and the 'giraffes' would get her. It was an old draughty house and we had a draught stopper in the doorway!
When I was very little, my sister told me that there were crocodiles under the deck next to our garage just to scare me. I believed her and decided to peek under the deck. The people who lived in the house before we did had a dog. There was a dog toy under the deck, so I thought that the dog got eaten by the crocodiles. I was scared half to death and quickly ran to the other side of the house in hiding.
I used to be afraid that the vaccuum cleaner would suck me in.
When I was about 6 or 7 my aunty and uncle had a walk-in wardrobe. Whenever i heard them say it I thought they were talking about a 'walking' wardrobe and that it followed them around trying to catch them and get them to put more clothes on. i was always perplexed as to why I never saw it move.
When I woke up in the middle of the night with the moon light coming through my curtains I thought there was always a bear in my room. I was so scared to look at it so I would close my eyes tight and try to go to sleep. But it was only my long hair covering my face that looked like a bear.
Growing up in an old house, my father was frequently doing some kind of work around the house. When he needed wood, he went outside and flagged down a truck that was hauling wood and buy it from the driver. At least, that what I thought was going on. Little did I know that our house was hard for the driver to find and my father had to get his attention after he had driver by the umpteenth time!

When I was little (and for far too long into my childhood) I believed that my house was a giant's doll house, and my friends and family were being moved around by the giant girl who owned us. We only went to bed because the giant girl's mommy told her to stop playing. Every time we went someplace new, I was really excited because that meant that the giant girl's family got richer and bought her add-ons for her doll house!
