My mom used to say my teeth would turn yellow if I swallowed a lot of toothpaste. I didn't believe that, so I decided to test it out myself. I must have eaten about half of the tube. Obviously I got really sick. Still can't look at toothpaste the same way.

I once told my sister when she had swallowed Mouth Wash that her belly was going to blow up and explode. After five minutes, she came back with a 3 of my dads belts wrapped around her belly thinking she was stopping it from happening. How gullable can sisters be???

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 5 or so, I would take baths with my cousin. I was always so excited when we pulled the plug and that little whirlpool would happen. My cousin would tell me that it wouldn't happen unless I stood completely still and didn't breathe. Needless to say, I stood there many a time holding my breath until I was blue in the face...

i used to be so scared of the shower. We had this weird tile that looked like poeple were staring at you from behind the tile. for years I thought that I would be sucked into the world behind the tiles if I didn't entertain the people so I would do soap commercials and dance and sing in the shower.

When I was little there was a TV commercial for Mr. Bubble bath bubbles for kids. In the commercial, if the little boy churned the water enough, Mr. Bubble would appear. My mother was not at all pleased to find sudsy bath water all over the bathroom after I talked her into buying me some Mr. Bubble.

I used to think there were little people living in the drain, so when I took a bath I would pour extra soap down there for them.

Our sinks in the bathrooms at primary school made a lot of noise when the water was going down the plughole, so we all thought creatures like little turtles were in the pipes and drinking all the water. We were only 6 at the time!

Growing up, my family's bathroom was all in pink, as was the style at the time. And every once in a while, I would find a piece of pink toilet paper floating in the bowl with a darker red circle on it. I thought it had something to do with the pink dye turning red in this pattern when it got wet. So little scientist that I was, I would drop hundreds of sheets of toilet paper into the bowl, one by one, and watch to see if the red circle would manifest when the ink got wet.

I forgot all about that at some point. Years later, coming home from college, I observed my mother walk into the (no longer pink) bathroom, put on her lipstick, grab a sheet of toilet paper and blot her lips on it. Voila! Mystery solved. Red lipstick on pink toilet paper.

i used to think that when i was in the bath if i made too much noise a shark would eat me and and once i heard a bang underneath the bathtub and i jumped out completly naked and ran into the street thinking the shark was trying to get through (i was 4 and i never told my mum until that incident) and my mother father and sister almost peed themselves laughing at me standing in the front garden soaking wet and covered in shampoo i wasn't finding it funny telling them to hurry up before the shark ate them ... they just laughed harder i now see the funny side lol i was a strange child

I used to believe that the toilet flushed into hell and that if you were sitting on it when it flushed, the devil would grab you by the butt and pull you in.

I used to always pull back the shower curtain before I went to the bathroom to make sure someone wasn't hiding in there to kill me while I peed...

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!

In the bathtub there was a dried drop of paint, but I believed it was a porthole to where Peter Rabbit lived. I was always afraid the mean gardener would come through the porthole and see me naked.
