I thought that little creatures lived down the bathroom sink, and that I'd have to pour water and put chopped-up soap down the drain occasionally because that was how they ate and drank.
I used to believe that hairspray was made of grapes! =) Does't it smell grapey to you? XD
One day when I was 6 I learned that the toilet was NOT a water cooler. :/
you know that little silver thing in the bath tub that starts to drain water if the baths to full ,well when i was a kid i though that it was a camera and i was a news reporter ,reporting from a flood in africa .simples minds yes!
After watching a skit about a drain monster on the old Nickelodeon show 'You Can't Do That On TV' I was scared to death to take a shower. I still took them but i made sure that i was as far away from the drain as possible so the 'drain monster' couldn't attack me. This belief haunted me until the age of 10! I was absolutely horrified!
I used to beleive that bidets were something you washed your feet in I still think it is actually practical to do.
I believed that staying in the bathtub while the water was draining out would cause all the dirt to settle back onto my body.
when i was around 5 or 6 i believed jabba the slug thing on star wars was down in the drain of the bath tub becasue so much gunk when down in it. so i would lean over the drain and talk to him but i would never put my finger in there i was to scared hed catch me
when i was 3 i was afriad i would be swept down the bathtub drain when the water was flowing out so i always made her pull me out before she pulled the plug. but then she made me sit down and look at the size of me and the size of the drain and i got the picture.
After watching an advert on telly for a bathroom cleaner when i was younger, i believed that each house had a certain amount of water to it, and that if you used too much it would run out and the sink would fill with green gunge. To this day i always make sure the taps are turned off properly!
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?"
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..and it still scares me sort of till this day..that when i got in the bath tub..and stayed in there too long..Jaws(shark) would bust up through the bathtub and eat me. ..lol...the damage of shark movies.
When I was about 7 years old, I thought that there were goldfish in the tub watching me. I always had bubble baths so I couldn't "see" them, but I thought the see-through bubbles were fish eyes and the large ones were piranha eyes. I was frightened of bubble baths for 3 years.
I used to believe that bidets were little toilets for babies or midgets. It made sense to me at the time though...
I used to think everything in the bathroom came to life when I wasn't looking and "stood still" when I was.
Sometimes I would turn around really fast to try and "catch them" walking around.
I used to think that if I pulled the plug out of the bathtub while I was still in the tub I would be sucked down the drain with all the water. If either of my parents came into the bathroom and pulled the plug, I would jump out screaming.
I heard of a legend of a woman covered in blood coming out of a puddle of water if you were near and kill you if you disrespected your parents. I was sort of the obnoxious child, and our shower mat covered the drain so as I took showers there would always be a puddle. I worried that this woman would come out of the puddle and get me, so I'd always glance at the toilet water every few seconds from behind the shower curtain, and I'd hurry up in showers always thinking to myself, "I love my parents we're best friends!" thinking she can hear my thoughts and she'd believe me.
I used to think that conditioner was to wash the shapoo out
Whenever I would use a sink or any form of running water I always had to keep a body part or something else in the stream. I had this belief that there was a little man who lived under our house (and every other house) and he looked at all the water passing out of your house through a transparent pipe. He could always tell if the water was being used for something or if it was just going down the drain untouched.
I always believed that if he ever caught you wasting water something bad would happen and that he would be ok withunused water for a moment or two when you first turn on the tap or before you turn it off, but nothing more was allowed.
I still don't know what would happen if he caught you, but i never wanted to find out.
