when i was little, we had a neigbor; an old man with a weird hat he'd always wear. he was always a bit scary. our wall in the bathroom was tile. all the tiles had the exact same drawing thing on it; it was peach-ish with squiggly lines; no "picture" but im my imagination, there was an outline of that man & his hat. only i could see it, and my parents never knew why, but i was always scared to go to the bathroom or take a shower, because i thought he was watching me.

When I was about 7, my family and I moved into a new house. I immediately began exploring, seeing what each room contained. However, I forgot to check one, and for the next few months, I was terrified of what might be in there because I had no idea what the room was.

Eventually, I built up the courage to check it out, armed myself with a rolling pin, and burst through the door of our house's third bathroom.

One hot summer's day my dad asked me if I'd make him a water, but to make sure the water was cold he told me to 'let the tap run'. Seeing as the tap was a stationary fitting I of course found this very confusing...

When I was little there was a TV commercial for Mr. Bubble bath bubbles for kids. In the commercial, if the little boy churned the water enough, Mr. Bubble would appear. My mother was not at all pleased to find sudsy bath water all over the bathroom after I talked her into buying me some Mr. Bubble.

When I was little taking a shower i would always look down at the dripping water down the drain sometimes. and the water that was just about to fall looked like eye balls and i thought it was a monster staring at me. I was freaked out.

Growing up, my family's bathroom was all in pink, as was the style at the time. And every once in a while, I would find a piece of pink toilet paper floating in the bowl with a darker red circle on it. I thought it had something to do with the pink dye turning red in this pattern when it got wet. So little scientist that I was, I would drop hundreds of sheets of toilet paper into the bowl, one by one, and watch to see if the red circle would manifest when the ink got wet.

I forgot all about that at some point. Years later, coming home from college, I observed my mother walk into the (no longer pink) bathroom, put on her lipstick, grab a sheet of toilet paper and blot her lips on it. Voila! Mystery solved. Red lipstick on pink toilet paper.

Our sinks in the bathrooms at primary school made a lot of noise when the water was going down the plughole, so we all thought creatures like little turtles were in the pipes and drinking all the water. We were only 6 at the time!

When I was 3 or 4, I asked where the bath water when when the drain opened. My Dad told me a big frog drank it all. For a couple years I was terrified to take a bath beacuse I thought the frog was going to swallow me.

Ww went to a shopping mall when I was about five years old, and my mom asked me if I had to go to the restroom. I belived that she was asking me if I wanted to sit and rest. I pictured a large room with lots of couches and chairs for people to sit on if they got tired from their shopping. I told I didn't need to rest and wasn't tired, but she then told me that a restroom was the same thing as a bathroom.

I used to believe that the reason toothpaste was effective was because of how it burned in my mouth. So it effectively burned the plaque and germs away. Same with Listerine.

When I was young I believed razors were little vaccum cleaners that sucked the beard off. I remember trying it after my father shaved and consequently had a bloody cheek.
