Trough ages 4-9 i used to think that there were monster in my bathroom and if i accidentally turned on the fan when i turned on the lights it would summon them.
When I was young I believed there was a zombie in my bathroom and when I heard the taps dripping at night I thought zombie was eating someone.
I once believed I was allergic to bath water, and that i would dissolve into a puddle when touching it - My brother actually told me it so i would be afraid of taking a bath
I used to believe that there was a very flat white monster, a bit like a plaice, lying in the bottom of the bath. This is why I thought that an adult had to run a bath for me, because they were big enough to scare it away.
My sister told me that jellyfish came out of the shower and sting you to death.
when i was 5, i had some mino's left over from a fishing trip. my dad said i could keep them as pets. i had no fish tank, so i put them in the toilet. the water looked dirty, so i put some vanish in the toilet, it made the water blue, and the fish happy. it looked like they where dancing. until my dad flushed the toilet.
When my sister and I were kids, our mother bought us some mouthwash for the first time. My sister was all excited, but only knew about mouthwash from what she saw in TV commercials. So, I watched her as she poured herself a capful of the red cinnamon solution, emptied it into her mouth, and proceeded to swallow rather than spit. She followed this up with a hearty 'Ahhhh!".
When I was a kid, I use to believe, when I put salt in my bath water I will turn into a mermaid.
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.
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
When I was a kid, I thought you could get arrested if you accidently walked into the wrong restroom
There were spiders under the water in the bath, and if you didn't get out before the water drained away well ... they'd be all wriggly (and stuff).
I always hated baths when i was younger, so my mom used to distract me by telling me stories of the "Drain People". She used to make up stories that this little family used to live in our drain, and there was Dwayne Drain, and Darla Drain, and Dudley Drain and little Duey Drain. and i honestly believed in them until i was about 10!
When I was around the age of three I believed you could get to Disney Land if you swam to the bottom of the bath. My sister told me that if the bath was holding the maximum amount of water it could you would be able to get to Disney Land.
I remember evidently, one extremely hot night I went for a bath. The light was shining in through my bathroom window. At the time my bathroom walls were a peach colour and therefore the peach was reflecting off the water in my bath. It was like dusk on a scorching hot desert that was just coming to an end. I was so sure that it was the bath that would take me to Disney Land. I quickly took off my clothes and jumped in the bath. I was so exited and quickly ducked my head under the water to try and get to Disney Land. It didnít work I was heart broken I was so convinced you could get to Disney Land this way. I will never forget about the magic I felt when I thought I could get to Disney Land by going to the bottom of my bath.
When I was younger, my brother told me that if I added a little bit of salt to the water in the bathtub, sharks and whales would appear and eat me up. I believed this until I was about 10. Sad, I know.
I was not a smart kid.
When I was about 8, I though that if someone flushed the toilet when you were in the shower, the water would turn off and never come back on. I am now 29, and my son is afraid of someone flushing the toilet when he's in the shower!
I used to believe that if I got soap in my eyes I would go blind, because all of the labels said keep out of contact with eyes. I didn't realise that it's because it stings.
I was terrified to use our bathroom in the middle of the night. I was so scared I would hide underneath a blanket and creep across the floor, and then look both ways before crossing the dangerous hallway back to my room.
When I was little, my mom always had a bottle of mouthwash on our bathroom counter. Of course, seeing as I wanted to be smart, I attempted to read everything. A week before, a teacher told us a story about a gargoyle. I read "Mouthwash & Gargle" as "Moutwash & Gargoyle". For years, I used to cry hysterically whenever my mom used mouthwash, because I thought she'd turn into a gargoyle.
When I was very small i was convinced that I could go down the bathtub drain, just like the water. I would FREAK OUT if someone didn't grab me out of the tub before the little "drain tornado" appeared. Thank god for physics.
