I used to believe that a large snake lived in the bathtub drain. When the tub was drained after a bath, you could see its tounge as the water was going down. The snake was not particularly scary nor friendly, it was just doing its job, drinking the water after every bath.
I used to believe that there were secret opposing societies who were always at "battle" with each other. The people were on either side, depending on which way they put their toilet paper on the roll. I was on the side of the toilet paper coming over, and was "against" the people who put their rolls coming from underneath.
When I was pretty young I caught a part of one of the Jaws movies on tv. I guess I thought that sharks could live in water anywhere because I was afraid to use the bathroom or take a bath. It took me quite a while to get over that one.
I used to think that whenever the toilet was flushed it was emptied into a closet in the basement (the pipes were in the wall behind the closet so it always sounded like the toilet flushed into the closet)
I was afraid to open the closet until I was 8 (although I always wondered how it was emptied)
i used to believe that if you were in the bathtub when you pulled out the drain it would suck you in. i guess i watched too much rugrats!
For years I wouldn't use the bathroom in a public place and someone had to be in the room when i took my bath (one of my older sisters sat on the toilet) and i left the door open when i would go to the bathroom..all because i was afraid Candyman would get me
I used to believe that the skeleton that lived in my toilet got angry at me if I stayed to long in there, so he'd make the door move. And that when someone had closed the door he was hanging from the ceiling dancing.
My mother told my sister she would get sucked down the drain if she stayed in the bath when she pulled the plug. My sister decided to conduct an experiment. Placed me (at 7 months) in the bath tub and pulled. She was really angry with my mom for lying to her. I still have issues with pool drains.
i never liked to stay in the bath long, because when my fingers started going wrinkly i thought i was slowly turning into a mermaid.
i used to believe that if someone take his bath with a hair shampoo, their body will become hairy.
when i was little i used to believe a lot of really stupid things. i used to believe that if u didnt get out of the bathtub before all the water was gone u would get sucked down the drain. i also used to always leave the door open just a crack because i thought if i closed it all the way, something would get me an I would die! LOL
When i was about 8, whenever i took a bath I always though a shark or pirana would come out of the drain! I was so scared since i could never see the drain when i used the bubbles, i laugh about that still.
Having watched my mother test the temperature of the water by running her fingers under the hot tap, I used to believe that was how the water was actually heated, and spent quite some time wondering why my fingers wouldn't heat the water up.
When I was little, after my bath, I would hide under my towel in the belief that my mum wouldn't be able to see me. She added to my belief by calling my name until I popped out, when she feigned mock surprise. This carried until I was at least seven, and she still teases me mercilessy...
When I was small I hated being left alone, and when it was just my dad and I in the house, I would sit outside the (louvred) bathroom door while he was on the toilet, and he would gripe, "would you go away and let me poop in peace!" and so for years I thought the bathroom was called "peace". :-)
When i was about five i thought that i would get sucked down the drain, after watching an eisode of Rugrats
I used to believe that brown paper towels or toilet paper was "whole grain". I walked into a bathroom one day and said to nobody in particular (out loud, of course), "Wow! Whole-grain toilet paper! How fancy!"
I use to belive as a child that the water that went into the drains got cleaned up and put back into the water suply of the house with the exption of tolet water witch is why you only went to the bathroom in the tolet because you did not want to drink pee.
you know when you let your water out of the bathtub and that little water tornado starts i used to think he was my friend and i would try and catch him and save him from the sharks in the drain.so i would cry after every bath because i thought he would never come back
My Scottish Grandfather would tell me after a bath that if I didn't dry off rapidly, that any part of my body that the water would dry on would fall off. I still dry myself as fast as possible to this day... 37 years later
