i used to beleive that if you stood in the bath while the water was draining that you would be sucked down the plughole :s
When I was 4 I had the misconception that hair grew in water, which is why when I cut all my hair off and my mother wailed for my extraordinary explanation, I cheerfully replied, "don't worry mommy. It will grow back when I take a bath."
I used to believe that conditioner was also called 'rinse.' I believe this is from the directions to "Apply Shampoo and Rinse" on shampoo bottles.
When I was little (five or so), my mom must've told me not to flush garbage or something down the toilet. I assumed that if I did, she would know somehow. For many years afterwards I pictured a room like an aquarium with people watching a stream of water through huge windows, seeing what came down with each flush. I never figured out how they would tell which wads of toilet paper came from which toilet, though.
I used to think it was possible for girls to pee standing up. I even tried.
When I was very little, my dad told me that shampoo was actually the 'poo' of llama-like animals called 'Shams', which lived on golf coarses..... I believed this until I was about 12, and still get that image in my head when I buy shampoo.
You know that hole at the top of the sink to prevent overflow? I used to believe that any water that went down there went straight to Africa to the people that didn't have fresh water, so I spent hours cupping my hands diverting water from the tap down the hole!
I used to believe that the electric outlet in the bathroom was a video camera, and that it was taking videos of everyone in the bathroom. Stupid lying big sisters.
When I was 5, I thought the "restroom" was actually a place you went to take a nap.
My mum sings in the shower, so when i was small(and i mean REALLY small)i thought she did that because the shower head was a snake,and when she was singing,the snake was happy and did not spit poison,but if she dident sing,the snake would get hangry(thats hungry and angry)and would poison her and eat her.This was so embarrising when she wasen't singing in the shower.
I believed that Pennywise from Stephen King's IT lived in the bathtub so I would always turn on the hot water before unstopping the drain in order to scald him.
I used to believe that the gurgle sound after pulling the plug in the sink was from the troll that lived down at the bottom burping after drinking all the sink water :)
i used to believe that the toliet water would instantly come through the sink so id wait untill it stopped running to wash my hands
I used to be terrified of taking baths because I was afraid that a giant shark would come up the drain and eat me.
When I was little my older brother told me that the monster dimension was on the other side of the mirror and that they would get me if I used the bathroom with the lights off. 15 years later and I still have to turn on the lights before entering the bathroom
I use to believe that the pink bag in the shower was a flower. I filled the flower with pee. My mom found it and said to me, Stop peeing in my enema bag.
i used to think there was a ghost in my shower when the shower curtains were closed and i would be in the bathroom.
I believed that if you didn't wash yourself right after exercising the sweat would absorb back to your body and make the exercise ineffective.
As a child I thought that to drown in the bathtub meant that somehow you would go down the drain. Didn't really see how that was possible.
I used to believe that if you bathed with the light off at night, when you pull the plug out a hippo would come up into the bathroom through the drain.
