I used to belive that the drain in the tub would suck yuo down if you didn't get out before the water went down. I thought that because I thought since I wasn't as heavy as the average 3 yr old, It would suck me down with the water. The drain looked like a vacume 2 me, because at the end it made that gurgling noise. I also thought there was a monster down there, like hairy one, or a shark, or as a replacement, a clown.
I don't know why, but i used to believe that, under all the bathroom drains, there was a room. And there was a bum in the room with a pot who caught all the water in the pot when any water went down the drains ...
i used to belive if you were in the tub for more than 2 minutes it would eat you....
I used to believe that bidets were little toilets for babies or midgets. It made sense to me at the time though...
I used to believe that if i was still lingering in the bath when the plug was pulled out, my skin would get sucked of my bones and down the drain too!
I used to believe that there was a big monster under the sink that drank the water we spilled, and I was always afraid that one day it would get full of water and explode.
When I was very small i was convinced that I could go down the bathtub drain, just like the water. I would FREAK OUT if someone didn't grab me out of the tub before the little "drain tornado" appeared. Thank god for physics.
I used to believe there was monster (he looked rather like a Yowie) living in the plumbing who would suck out all the water when you pulled the plug, that's why there were all those slurping noises. My sister told me if you sat in the bath while it was draining, he would eat you too!!
I used to think that there was an octopus living underneath my bathtub and if I touched the drain, it would come up and drag me down with it.
For some reason, I used to think that there was always a murderer in the tub behind the shower curtain, waiting to kill me as I peed at night. Even now, I still leave the shower curtain pulled back.
I have a serious case of arachnophobia, so whenever I took a shower, I was always afraid that giant spiders would crawl up out of the drain and eat me alive. Even now, I still stare at the drain and stand as far away from it as I possibly can.
i used to think if i sang into the drain/hole thing at the top of the bath, people would hear me out of the pipes sticking outside on the wall of our house and listen to me
When I was about 7 years old, I thought that there were goldfish in the tub watching me. I always had bubble baths so I couldn't "see" them, but I thought the see-through bubbles were fish eyes and the large ones were piranha eyes. I was frightened of bubble baths for 3 years.
you know how when water goes down the drain it makes kind of a tornado looking thing in the water right above th drain? well when i was younger i used to think that when it did that it meant that we were going to have a tornado soon. so i used to sit in the bath while the water was draining and swish the water around a lot so it wouldn't look like that when it was going down.
In the apartments where we lived when I was little the drain was kind of slow I guess and the bottom of the tub would fill up with a couple of inches of dirty soapy water. I would stand as far away from the deeper end of the tub as possible because I thought evil fairies riding fish would come up through the drain and bite me and poke me with little sticks and things.
When I was little I used to wear my underwear in the bathtub because I thought I'd get sucked down the drain......Not that underwear would even help me!
I would think that if i was alone in the bathroom without a light on, i would get dragged away from a ghost from the underworld.
my grandmother being english told us many poems. one being that of not getting out of the tub you would go down the drain. to this day at age 48 i can't stand to be in the tub when the plug is pulled.from a book of poems i saw esau
When I was little, my mom always had a bottle of mouthwash on our bathroom counter. Of course, seeing as I wanted to be smart, I attempted to read everything. A week before, a teacher told us a story about a gargoyle. I read "Mouthwash & Gargle" as "Moutwash & Gargoyle". For years, I used to cry hysterically whenever my mom used mouthwash, because I thought she'd turn into a gargoyle.
when i was young i was scared of showers becos i thought if i closed my eyes the water would turn to blood...
