When I first started going to pre-school everything was very strange and new. The bathroom had one of those sinks that is basically a big tub with streams that fan out in a semi-circle. You would turn it on by stepping on a bar that was on the floor. I had never experienced this type of sink before. The teacher would tell us to go wash our hands before our snack. All the kids would run in and crowd around this sink. There would always be kids there before me to press on the bar. So I never understood how the sink turned on. I didn't see any handles or knobs. I thought of lots of differant solutions. Maybe the bathroom had a motion camera like the doors at the super market. I also thought that maybe the teacher would press a button that would turn the sink on and off. It wasn't until i started grade school when there wasn't kids always crowded around it that i discovered the bar on the floor.
There used to be a big conch shell in my bathroom. I would listen to the "ocean" all the time. I would also talk into it believing I was talking to the sea life. I thought I could tell sharks not to hurt people, dolphins to swim closer to beach so I could see them better or to stay away from tuna nets, mermaids that I wouldn't hurt them if they said hi one day, and who knows what other ridiculous things I thought would help them!
my mum used to tell me that if i didn't brush my teeth little men would come and break my teeth with hammers. i remember being really worried in case i hadn't brushed properly!
When I was tiny I had a massive phobia of crocodiles. I even had some strange idea that they could swim all over the world and sneak into baths. For a while after that I was petrified of jumping into a bath incase a crocodile jumped up and ate me!
when i was little i thought that there was a walrus that lived in the drain! so everytime i took a bath i would sit at the far end of the tub away from the drain!
Becuase I was told not to flush the toliet while someone was in the shower I thought that it was because the water (and the other stuff) that was just in the toliet would come out from the shower head.I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO grossed out!!!
I used to lock myself in the bathroom when small, and mix small amounts of face creams, aftershaves, toothpastes and shower gels together in a plastic pot. I somehow thought I could make a 'wonder potion' that could do everything. I imagined i was creating something important that my mum would love.
Up until I was in high school I had an irrational fear that a monkey's paw lived in the plumbing in our bathroom. I regularly had nightmares about it attacking me.
I used to believe that if you turned a bathtub to maximum temperture it would turn all the water into fire and burn you, and if you took it to mininum tempurture it would turn all the water into ice and turn you into "Frozen Nude sitting in tub" I was horrified to have any one besides mum adjust the tempeture
I used to think the three blind mice from the nursery rhyme lived in the overflow drain hole in the sink, and I would stuff cheese and pour water down there so the poor things wouldn't starve!
I used to believe that every time I washed my hands that I had got rid of another load of dirt down the plughole and that eventually I would rid the world of it. This meant that eventually washing would become unnecessary
I used to believe that Once you pulled the plug in the Tub after your done that you would get sucked down the drain..
I used to think it was possible for girls to pee standing up. I even tried.
When I was young , my father used to tell me when I lost a tooth . I had to put it under my pillow. The tooth fairy came in my bedroom and she took my tooth .She give me money but , It was my father. I knew at the age of 15 it was wrong :,It was my parents
I used to believe that you could get washed down the drain when you took a shower, and I also briefly believed that you could get bit by an alligator who had been flushed when you used the toilet. I'd like to thank my older brothers for sharing that info with me :P
When I was young I was told that I should have some clothes on when I had a bath.
My mother said, if I didn't my guardian angel would run away.
When I was a young gal, I thought that people could see into the bathroom, by looking into the crack by the ground. I was so scared that people could see me, that I would take towels and push them into the crack.
My Grandmother used to dry her nylon stockings on a rack in her bathtub. When the shower door was closed I could see them faintly through it. I was terrified of the vague shadowy shapes even though I wasn't sure what they were. But I knew they were bad. I would try to be as silent as possible when using the bathroom. And when I flushed, I ran out as quickly as possible.
When i was little i thought that if i stayed in the bathtub too long it would grow teeth and fold in half and turn into a shark and eat me.
When I was little, I thought that if I pulled the drain while I was still taking a bath, I would get sucked down with the water and have to live in the sewers, where the evil mole people would find me and eat me.
