when i was small i used to believe that

I used to believe that when you went into the bathroom, you had to sing the ABC's. At the end when you say "Next time wont you sing with me" I always asked my mom to sing with me because I thought you had to ask someone to sing with you.
When I took my shower, I thought bad spirits could arrive through the evacuation holes. So, I would put a plastic glass on it and put my foot on it. It was very handy to take a shower with on efoot on a plastic glass !!!
i was scared to be left in the tub by myself because i thought sharks would come out of the drain and eat me. and i also didnt want the water to get so dirty that i wouldnt be able to see it. i thought if i could see the drain that it wouldnt come out. finally one day i tryed looking in there when my mom caught me and told me there was nothing in there. i felt so stupid. i was about 5 or 6 when it happened.
My brothers told me and my twin that when we were in the bath that there were lots of monsters in the plug hole waiting to attack uswhen we were in the bath therefore when we went in the bath wed squish up in 1 end if the bath and my mam could never understand why!!
I used to lock myself in the bathroom when small, and mix small amounts of face creams, aftershaves, toothpastes and shower gels together in a plastic pot. I somehow thought I could make a 'wonder potion' that could do everything. I imagined i was creating something important that my mum would love.
I believed that if you stayed in the bathtub while the water was draining down, you would get sucked down the drain.
When I was younger I thought that I would get sucked down the bathtub drain and one night I was having a bath at my grandma's house and my uncle, not know about my fear, unplugged the bathtub drain. I was screaming and screaming...lol
When I was around 5, my nanny used to tell me that the bath water we used came from "Angels peeing from the sky". I thought that was a little odd but I didn't pay any mind.
I used to believe that if a shampoo said it was for 'greasy hair' then it would give you greasy hair. I thought this was what you needed to use if you had dry hair - to make it better
When I was younger I used to believe that something was always hiding behind the shower curtain.So everyday before i went to the bathroom i would take down the shower curtain.but soon my parents started to wonder wat was wrong with me and wen they found out told me that nothing was behind there.....but i inturpreted this as "you better suck it up cause im sick of putting that shower curtain back up"
I used to believe as a kid that cockroaches used to come up out of the hole in the bath and if you didn't get out in time, they'd come up and run all over you.
When I had to use the bathroom at my grandparents house when I was younger I had to bring an offering. You see in the light fixture there was a lot of dead flys and moths. I beleived they were the guardians of the bathroom. If I didn't bring something they would catch me and make me live in the ligt fixture forever!
when i was younger my mum told me a bi-day was where you wash your feet.
she only told me 2 weeks ago that it wasn't true.
I used to believe that there was a monster in the tub drain and if it caught me it would suck me down into the drain.
I used to think that there were aliens living in the bathroom fan that would look down into the room. I think I heard a weird clicking sound one day that sparked this belief.
when i was younger my mum used to tell me that i shouldnt drink the water from the taps in the bathrooms because it was 'spiders water'. She explained that a little group of spiders had a factory in the sink and that they processed the water so if i drank any of it i would get ill. i used to be terrified of brushing my teeth with the water! :-(
I used to babysit two little girls, ages 4 and 5. One night they were brushing their teeth, and after spitting toothpaste in the sink the younger one looked up at me and said, "Is that bird poop?"
in this TV show i saw a snake coming up from the drain so everytime i take a shower i go really fast!
After I took a shower or bath I would always leave a puddle of water all over the tiles. My mom HATED that. So she told me that if the water was left there for too long the tiles would come up and be all pointy and I though that if I stepped on it they'd poke me and hurt. I also believed that if I poured a water bottle out on the carpet upstairs it would leak through the downstairs ceiling and it would be like it was raining inside! It's a shame that never worked...
