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 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.

When I was small and allowed to set up the bathwater myself I believed that the water could get so hot that it would finally freeze.

When I was little, sometimes my mom would let me use her bathroom (to take bubble baths with my Barbies). Sometimes, I see thin, brown, coiled layers in the toilet bowl. I would get terrified, thinking that there was a disgusting snake living in our pipes who came up into the toilet to shed his old skin. Actually, these thin, coiled layers were shavings from my mom sharpening her eye pencil and forgetting to flush it away.

When my daughter was little, she used to think that the gurgling noise made by the bathwater going down the drain was the result of a very thirsty dragon that lived in the sewer.
Too cute!!

for some dumb reason, I used to think that after you took a bath, you had to drain the tub and refill it with some special concoction for your skin and you had to soak in it. This little after-bath thing was called a "nine". I have no idea where I got that idea from.

Somehow I was raised washing my hands in cold water, even though today my parents use warm. I used to believe that most people used cold, and that using warm water made you a weirdo. I finally realized the truth on a sixth grade field trip, but I still get very irritated when the water in public restrooms comes out hot at first courtesy of the "weirdo" :) who used the sink before me.

I used to love sloshing about in the bathtub, but I thought that if I overdid it, I would summon up "the Kraken", a huge, blood-red octopus with fangs. So, whenever I thought that i might be sloshing uncontrollably, I would hop out for a minute or two.

Our bathtub drain didn't have the little metal strainer in it, it was just a hole. It made this horrible sound when draining, it got worse as the water level dropped.

When I was 4 or 5, my older brother came into the bathroom just as I pulled the plug. He told me that sharks could come up into the tub since we didn't have the strainer in there. I remember telling him he was full of it, but I never pulled the plug again until I was out of the tub.

Now I tell my kids that the strainer is there to prevent shark attacks.

When I was a kid, my mom didn't want me to get burnt by hot water so she told me "always turn on cold water first, never hot water first!"
So I asked her: "Will it explode if I turn on hot water first?"
And she answered - probably absentmindedly- "yes!"

I never ever ever ever ever turned on the hot water tap first! XD Even now - I'm 22 - I would feel strange doing so!

But I never got burnt anyway so thank you mom!

when i was little i always had alot of time to think abt things especially if i was making a shit so one time in my little "thinking sessions" i started to wonder if maybe my whole whole life was just a dream and nothing had really happened yet. I also used to wonder how i was born a human and not an animal or a plant and if i was an animal or a plant if i would be the same person...? i still think about that sometimes, but i dont have thinking sessions on the toilet anymore
