top belief!

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, 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.

Since I was 7 years old, I used to beleive that the drain in our shower as evil and sucked women in because, whenever my a woman took a bath there (Sister, Mother etc.)There was a Cluster of hair forming at the bottom of the bath, I beleived that if you don't cover the drain at the bottom you will get sucked in.But, If you cover the drain too long the room will explode because the monster is sucking too hard on you.Ever since then I covered the drain with anything I got my hands on.

I used to think that baby showers were just that-the ladies would gather around the new baby and stand it up in the shower for a bath.

When I was young I believed that the drain in the back of the sink was to give the sink a drink. Every time that I brushed my teeth, I had to pour some water in the drain so that the sink wouldn't be thirsty.

I thought "toilet water" was used to put into the toilet to make it smell better. Therefore, I put all "toilet water" I could find into the toilet!...That's what the bottle said!

for some reason I had to hold my breath when I would walk past the one bathroom at my house. It didn't smell or anything. I just didn't like that bathroom.

when i was small, i used to think that the popular boys in my class had hidden cameras in the bathrooms of every girl to see which ones were the prettiest ones. That's why i had to undress very "sexily". Imagine a nine year old doing that...

I'm 17 now and, thankfully, have slightly more sense now. When I was 3, I would stay at my grandma's house quite often. She hated bugs and would flush them down the toilet when she found them. One day, I was misbehaving quite badly and Grandma told me she was going to flush me down the toilet like she had done to a cricket earlier that day. This traumatized me and a few weeks later, my parents were trying to wash my hair in the kitchen sink, but couldn't figure out why I would scream and slap at them when I saw the drain. After my grandmother heard about this, she confessed what she had said to me on that terrifying day at her house.

In my downstairs bathroom, there is a boiler with a red light and a green light. Next to the red light were the words "Power On" and next to the green light it said "Demand". I (not being able to spell very good at that age) thought that "demand" said "demon". I thought that when the green light was on the Demon was coming t get me and whenever I used the toilet I used to force it all out quickly and run before the green light came on and the Demon would come and get me. I often ran from the bathroom with my pants still down! *blush*
