I used to be scared of the drain at the bottom of the pool, especially the big one at the community pool. I imagined it would suddenly suck me down to the underworld and there was a monster down there that wanted me. I stayed scared of pool drains for a very long time.

When I would have my swimming lessons, I would belt it down the pool, not because I wanted to become an Olympic medallist, I didn't want the sharks, or worse, the whales, to eat me while I swam! I still swim pretty quickly in the deep end....

When I was 7 my older sister and all of the lifeguards at my neighborhood pool convinced me that there was a thing called a wetifyer. If you turned the wetifyer off then once you got out of the pool you would no longer be wet. I believed them until I finally became a lifeguard myself and asked my boss where the wetifyer was located...

When I was about 6 we use to go to Los Angeles in summer to vist my grand-parents.They had a swimming pool in the back garden.When I was swimming, I asked my brother why I couldn't swim in the deep end and he told me"Well our family is part mermaid and that I wasn't enough of a mermaid." so of course I asked what I needed to do to become a Mermaid and he said eat lots os carrots which I hated and still do.I started to cry and when my dad asked why "I just said Daddy I need carrots." I think he thought I was just a very heath concious child.

when my sister and i were young, we went to a pool that had white tiles on the bottom of the shallow end, with the occasional black tile. my sister believed these black tiles were bottomless abysses and refused to step on them for years, until one day she braved it and was completely shocked it was just another tile.

When I was younger I used to believe that sharks lived in any body of water (including swimming pools). So everytime I jumped off the edge or the diving board I would swim as fast as I can to get back out because I thought a shark would come out of the pool wall and eat me.

You know how some hotels are called "Hotel Name and Suites"? Well I always used to think suites was meant to be suit, as in bathing suit. I thought that all of those hotels had a pool, and they had extra bathing suits in case you forgot yours. I pictured this big room with men's, women's and children's suits, in every size. I thought that was a lot of work for a hotel to go through.

When I went swimming I used to believe that sharks lived behind the grills where the wave machine comes from!! I wouldn't even look underwater at them incase I saw a shark looking back at me. When the wave machine came on I thought the sharks were getting angry and I wouldn't go near the grills incase they ate me!
