My dad told me to jump in the bath, and i thought that he meant that litterally so i jumped in the bath..!
When I was little, when I would take a bath, I used to scream frantically at any random moment. Later my mom found out that she had left the window open, and that I was afraid the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz were going to come in and take me from my family.
I always hated baths when i was younger, so my mom used to distract me by telling me stories of the "Drain People". She used to make up stories that this little family used to live in our drain, and there was Dwayne Drain, and Darla Drain, and Dudley Drain and little Duey Drain. and i honestly believed in them until i was about 10!
I used to believe that I would get sucked into the drain at the bottom to the bathtub if I didn't jump out quick enough.
I used to believe that whenever i took a bath, i should'nt move around a lot because the tub would give in under my weight and i would fall into a bottomless pit.
You know how if you twirl your finger around really fast in water it will make a "tornado"? I used to think that if I kept doing it, the "tornado" might get big enough to take over the entire tub and suck me up inside of it and disintegrate me.
I was always told not to swallow toothpaste when brushing my teeth. Naturally I came to assume that the product was poisonous and I vowed never to touch the stuff again. I got over this fear a few years later but the damage to my dental record will never be undone...
I used to believe the overflow drain in our bathroom sink was a way for the water company to tell if I was using too much water. My mom had told me this when I asked what it was for.
the first scary movie that i ever saw was "jaws" when i was about 6. i was terrified, of course. but especially when i went to take a bath. i really thought that huge shark was going to come up through the drain and get me. i cried and sat up against the back of the tub the entire time.. probably for about 2 or 3 weeks.
When I was nine, I watched Stephen King's IT, and couldn't take a shower without my mom being there or at least the door open because I thought that the clown was gonna come out of the shower drain and get me. I figured if I had the door open she could at least hear me scream.
I use to fill a bottle with "clean" water and put it aside.
Then I would take anything Iying around the bathroom (shampoo, mouthwash, etc) and mix up a potion in the toilet and flush). I would drink my water all day long so that I wouldn't mutate along with the rest of my block.
I used to believe there was only a finite amount of water for the whole house. The reason my dad was always drawling under the sink or messing about with pipes elsewhere was because he was changing the filters that kept everything clean for us. I was deathly afraid that one day the pipes would get crossed and I would step into the tub and get showered by poo.
when i was really small (2) i used to think that if i stepped on red towels that the floor would collapse and that i would fall under the floor and be trapped there forever...
i also used to be afraid of melting cheese...
When I was little I watched Stephen King's "IT". After that everytime I got in a shower I watched the drain the WHOLE time because I was afraid IT would come climing out..... I still watch the drain in fear today, and I am 18 :S
I believed when I was a wee little lass, about 5 I guess that this wee little feller lived down me wee little bath tub drain. I used to be afraid to go near that wee little drain figurin that the wee man would hurt me.
when i was young well um maybe i was 10
i used to think that there was a camera behide the mirror in the bathroom so when i got out of the shower i made shore that i had my towel on and got out of the way of the mirror so no-one could see me naked LOL im 12 now and think that what i thought was stupid ! ! ! !
When I was little, I belived that if I stayed in the bathtub when I pulled the drain, I could get sucked down into the sewers.
(I also pretended to myself there were sewer monsters that would eat feces and everything. Strangely enough that was inspired by a picture of the "boogie man" in a pango's pizza place.)
I also belived that on plane toliets I would get sucked down, or my organs would get sucked down. ...I went on a plane when I was little, too. I think I ended up peeing in the sink because I was so afraid!
i always open the shower curtains b4 i go in any farther cause i have this weird notion that there's an ax murder in there
I used to think the three blind mice from the nursery rhyme lived in the overflow drain hole in the sink, and I would stuff cheese and pour water down there so the poor things wouldn't starve!
Wheni was young my moms friends husband died and i used to alwayz think that he was in the bathtub waiting for him wife to c him from this day on b4 i take a shower i open the curtains real quick so i can "somethi g" b4 it gets away
