As a preschooler, I was afraid that the shower would turn on in the bathroom whenever it wanted, that my mother had to tie a washcloth over the showerhead before I would take a bath. I wasn't afraid of water and knew how to swim but I was terrified of the shower. Go figure!?
i used to believe that a "washcloth shark" lived in the drain of our bathtub. if you didn't bathe regularly enough, the water would get really grimy, the shark would be able to smell you and come up through the drain. as you looked down through the soapy/dirty water, you would think you were seeing a washcloth, but it was really--the shark! this story was told to me by my babysitter, and when my parents saw how easy it was for her to get me to take baths--they told me it was true! it took years for me to stop being afraid of the washcloth shark
When I was about seven years old my sister told me that I shouldn't put soap on my skin without wetting it first. She said that she knew a girl who did this and she ended up having to wear summer clothes in the winter and winter clothes in the summer!
When I was a kid, I believed that the way to get to the attic was through the bathroom sink drain. I would stare at the sink for hours trying to figure out how this worked. I finally asked my dad. His response: Counter-clockwise, of course.
When i was little i used to check the bathroom closet before i used the bathroom to make sure there wasnt a kidnapper in there.
when I was takinga bath my mom used to say "be sure to close the door so the draft doesn't get in" but I thought she was saying giraffe. So I would always leave the door open so the giraffe could get in to play in the tub with me, but my mom would always close it.
When I was about 5 years old, I saw these ads on TV for Cottonelle toilet paper. Well, the woman in the ad had all these huge cotton balls around her, so I thought that the toilet paper would turn into these huge balls if I scrunched them. So I asked my mom if we had Cottonelle toilet paper, she said yes, so I went into the bathroom and wasted a whole roll trying to make big fluffy clouds like on TV!
it didn't work.. :( haha
I used to believe that that the bag hanging in the shower was to pee in.
So I peed in the bag hanging in the shower all the time. I found out later that this bag was a folding enema bag.
When I was about 5, my cousin would come over to play (she is 5 years older than I am), she would go to the bathroom and lock me out, and starting carrying on about duckies being int he bathtub. I would beg for her to let me in,and when she did, she'd say they went down the drain because they diddnt like me. I believed her for years.
When I was yuoung I thought that a "stroke" was when you fell down in the shower.
I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet, the water would travel through the pipes to the shower or sink. I had been told to never flush the toilet when someone was in the shower and no one ever really told me why. So I just assumed that the person showering would be bathed in my um, excrements. oops!
For about the first 7 years of my life, I thought that only boys could take showers, and girls could only take baths or else it was against the law for a girl to take a shower and a guy to take a bath... One time my father took a bath and I ran to my mom saying: "Mom, dad's taking a bath... Shhh don't call the cops."
my dad told me i would turn into a prune if i stayed in the bathtub too long, i got scared.
When I was little I had an inexplicable fear of the loofah (which I called a yupby) in the bathroom and my cousins would chase me round the house with it making ghost noises...whoooooooo! As if that wasn't enough my mum used to tell me that if I wasn't good the yupby would come alive at night and get me
When I was three I would yell into the bathtub drain after taking my bath. I was convinced my father could hear me, and i would ask him all sorts of questions.
I used to believe that Dracula lived in the vent above the bathroom toilet and whenever I would turn on the fan he would jump out and suck my blood.
i used to believe after the bath, when u pulled out the plug and then the water sucked out, i'd get sucked down the drain too.
So i'd always hurry and get out of the room, before i hear that sucking noise.
I used to believe that Mr. Bubbles lived under my bathtub
Actually only a few years ago, I was still a pretty supersticios kid. It was right after 911. Of course, I would take a shower every day. But I learned that osama bin laden was the person that may have set up the 911 attack. I kept thinking that some guy in a turbin was behind my shower curtain, and any moment he would jump in my shower and get me. I remember being sooo afraid to get out of the shower, because I thought there was someone in the bathroom with me. I still get those weird feelings. Sometimes I check thecloset and look behind the curtain before I used the bathroom
I used to beleave that the plastic cap and the yellow bag hanging in the shower were toys. I had many hours playing wth theese tings. Later I learned they were a shower cap and a douche bag.
