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.
I used to believe there were shower monsters that lived in the shower but hid when there was water in the shower or bathtub they hid down the drain because they were alergic to water. My sister told me that i was lucky they hadn't killed me yet. I asked her why and she said because you don't sing when you go to the bathroom. So from then on I sang while going to the bathroom to keep the monsters having too much fun dancing to my music to eat me. Then whenever I went to someones house and had to use the bathrom I would ask them how many monsters were in their showers so i would know how loud I had to sing.
There are usually only one drain in a bathtub - the one in the floor. Well, when I was little, the baths had two drains, the second one built-in above the floor one. So since it was always to dark, I used to believe there were rats living in there. Needless to say, I didn't bathe too close to it.
We have a bathtub that has a drain on the wall that has "wolverine" writen on the top of it. It has 2 bolts on the left and right side that looked like squinting eyes, and a nozzle in the middle that you pull down to drain the water. When I was 3-7 I thought that the thing was a wolverine, but it was sleeping, and if the water got too high, he would jump out of the wall and eat me. It scared the heck out of me when the water did get that high a couple times. I jumped out of the water and ran out of the room as fast as I could.
I used to think if I locked the door in the bathroom while using the toilet, something very terrible will happen and I will die without anyone knowing or helping because the door is locked. I didn't lock the bathroom door until I went to boarding school.
This is actually about my bathtub. When I was 3-7 years old, we had a round lever on our wall that had "wolverine" writen on it because that was its companies name. It had 2 bolts on the sides of it that looked like eyes, with the slit in them to make it look like it was almost closed but sleeping, and a lever in the middle that you pulled down to drain the water. Well I always thought that there was a monster in our wall called wolverine and if the water got too high and reached him, he would wake up, his eyes would open (the bolts), and he would jump out and eat me. So for years I tried not to touch him a at all except to drain the water, which I thought he drank.
