I used to believe that recycled toilet paper was actually used toilet paper that had been recycled. It didn't help that the one time I saw a roll it was speckled and not all white.
when i was little i used to that a singing monster was hiding in my shower so every time i went to the restroom i would sing to scare him away
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 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 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.
I once saw a commercial or something that showed a kid who'd left the faucet running while he was brushing his teeth. the water came from a pond right outside his window, where there was a happy little fish swimming around, but the fish drowned because the kid had left the faucet running and sucked the pond dry. after i saw that i never used faucet water to brush my teeth, because i thought that it was pond water.
I use to believe that I would get sucked down the drain with the bath water if I stayed in the tub after the plug was pulled. I loved taking baths but my parents didn't have any trouble getting me out of the tub, they said they could pull the plug and I would materialize standing on the floor next to them. I was eleven years old before I stayed in the tub until the water had all drained out to prove to myself that I would not go down the drain.
My dad liked to mangle children's poems when giving us baths. One night he was bathing me and he started in, 'the king was in the counting house, fixing up the car, the queen was at the golf course shooting over par, the maid was in the bath tub trying to wash her toes, she accidently pulled the plug...' and I shrieked out, 'AND DOWN THE DRAIN SHE GOES!'
I used to think that if you left the taps on for too long the sea would run out.
when i was little, my dad used to wash my hair, and he used to joke about shampoo being "burning eye soap" and that it would melt down my eyeballs if it got in my eyes. to this day i refuse to let my dad come near me with any soap of any type.
Like many young children, my (older) brother used to be afraid that he could be sucked down the drain of the bathtub. He once told me that to test his fear, he put me in the tub and drained it, to see if I would go down the drain. Apparently, I wasn't as important as he tub toys. Maybe that's why I never had a fear of the drain.
i used to believe our fan in the bathroom was a monster because it made so much noise ! so everytime i went to the toilet i would talk to the fan so it wouldnt hurt me!! lol i kept this habit until we moved out of the house we lived in and our new fan didn make noise like the old one!
My step-dad made me believe that if you put a baby wipe in the toilet it would explode, and one day (i think i was 5) I accidentally dropped on in and I screamed, running to my mom with my pants all the way down. And I was at my Aunt's house so it was more humiliating.
I used to believe that if I stayed in the bathtub to long, I would shrivel up and turn into a tiny raison...Yep. My mom is a LIAR!
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 if someone take his bath with a hair shampoo, their body will become hairy.
I personally used to believe that if I yelled into the sink loudly enough, my message would echo and travel through the pipes, into the other bathroom's sink exit, or shower exit and that they would hear me talking to them... They never did.
I was around five when I decided to weigh myself on my mom's scale. Before I did so, I closly examined the numbers on it. Seeing that the highest the numbers went was 250 I assumed that that was how much my house weighed(it was the biggest thing I knew of at the time)and asked my mom if that was true. She was applying makeup and obviously wasn't paying attention when she replied, "Yes".
By the time I was 10, I had thought it over and it made no sense. I mean, my house was two stories high and it had all of this heavy furniture in it. Finally, I decided to ask my mom for the truth and she denyed that she had ever said it. Lol. She still won't answer.
My mom used to talk about "luke-warm water"--you know, medium temperature water--for my bath or something and I thought she was saying "luke-warmed"--warmed by a little guy named luke who lived inside the tub. I actually believed this until I was 8 and I asked my mom what she meant.
I used to think that recycled toilet paper was just used paper that had been washed. My mum went mad when I tried to make my own!!!
My older brother and I lived in the 3rd floor apartment of a house until I was 4 (he was 6). I thought the best part of moving was that I could take longer baths. My Mom had told us we couldn't stay in the tub too long because our landlord needed to take a bath too and wouldn't have any water until ours went down the drain into his tub. In our own house, I figured we wouldn't have to share!
