top belief!

My father was a good pianist and even had his own dance band in the 1930s. In the days before TV he used to entertain me by playing boogie woogie. I never could understand why some of my friends were terrified of the boogie man. I couldn't imagine how anybody could be dumb enough to be afraid of a jazz pianist.

When I was little, my parents used to joke aboutthe "Boogie Man". I mis-heard this as the "Booger Man", and I thought that if he touched you, you'd turn into a booger.

When I was younger, I used to believe that a evil man would come in our back door at night and run around the house checking the rooms to see if anyone was there. So I always listened for my parents to go to bed (because the man would only come in if no one was up, obviously) and then I would hide under my covers and pillows completely, except for a little breathing hole, so that when the evil man looked in the room he would think that it was empty and leave. I was always terrified that one day I was going to wake up too early and that he was going to be looking in the room, and then he would laugh in a high-pitched voice (I was sure he had a high-pitched voice somehow), stuff me in a sack, and then take me through the woods to the funeral home that we live near. I always thought that was where dead people came from - they forgot to hide under the covers when the evil man came into their house!

When i was about 5 i was at my grandparent's house.My uncles went in to the basement found an old folding cot, fishing gaiter things, rubber gloves, & a hat & put them on it. They brought it upstairs & said it was the "Cot Monster" & it freaked me out!! It's wicked funny know that we look back at it

When I was a tiddler we lived on the second floor of a block of flats.

One day while Mum was chatting to a friend (for much longer than my own attention span could handle) I looked at a door which appeared on one of the external walls and it opened.

Maybe it was some portal to another dimension or maybe I was just daydreaming but some human-sized squirrels walked through and threatened me with their machine guns!

Worse still, I couldn't interrupt Mum's chatting and had to wait until she stopped before I could tell her so I was constantly peeking out the kitchen door to check that the giant squirrels hadn't seen me and wouldn't come to drag me to their home dimension!

To this day I am still nervous around squirrels in case they grow big suddenly...

When I was little, I believed that monsters came out when the lights are off and dissapeared when the light turned on. For about a year, I always opened the door a crack, then use a stick to turn on the light before going in!

My Stepmother led me to believe, at the young age of 6, that if I did not finish my dinner the "Sleastacks" from "Land of The Lost" would come get me. Talk about nightmares.... :)

When i was about 3, i had a dream in which some monsters came up ourr garden path and tried to eat me. For 5 years i believed that it hadn't been a dream, it had actually happened, and i wouldn't go into the garden alone.

When I was 6 years old a fellow student told me that Gremlins were haunting me and the only way to get them to stop was to go to Jupiter and complete a deadly maze. Somehow I figured myself that if i was near my stuffed cat "Tiger" I would be safe. This went on for about 6 months but gradually i became less and less scared.
