My mother had me convinced that water towers were huge onions. So every time we would pass on in the car, she could somehow make her eyes water. She was very convincing :)
when I was, mayber 4 or 5, I pointed my local water tower out to my grandad + asked what it was. He told me 'it's full of water' + showed me the pies underneath where the water goes up + down, + I noticed a ladder there, too. I assumed that it must be a swimming pool, + the pipes were water slides.
I once tried to ask my Mother if we could go swimming there, but she didn't have a clue where I meant. It always seemed to be closed, anyway.
I used to believe that water towers were alien space ships, and during the night the aliens would go down to the cities an select people to have parties with them. At the end of the night they would brain wash every one so that other people wouldn't be jealose.
I used to believe people worked in the water tower, purifying the water and everything(that's why they had the stairs). I thought it would be a disgusting job, since pee would come in there too.
The water tower in my town has these two whitelights at the top. When I was little, I always though that the water tower was someones house and when they sat outside (which was always at night), they wore hardhats with lights on them in case they fell off the tower...
I used to believe that the giant mushroom shaped water towers were the door knobs that opened up huge doors in the earth. I had heard bible stories of giants living in the earth in the old days.
When I was a kid I always thought that a water tower was the robot from the TV show "Lost in Space".
i used to think water towers were houses for really tall people. I thought they had big heads to.
Once when I was little I lost a balloon when we opened the car door and it flew out. There was this water tower sitting on top of a hill far away in my town, and I was convinced for a long time that the water tower was my balloon.
When i was 5 my brother told me that water towers were filled with bees and wasps. so that poeple could get honey whenever they wanted
i used to believe that water towers were huge robots, and to activate them you had to turn the gauge... but then everyoe would have no water, because it would have been carried away in the robots!
I used to believe watertowers were giant mushrooms O.o... Don't ask... Really...
I used to believe that if you fell into a river you would get sucked into a water tower and it would be full of other people
As a small child, I thought my town's water tower was a giant Dairy Queen with an elevator leading up to it. Unfortunately, there actually was a Dairy Queen right around the corner, so it took my parents years to figure out why I really started whining for ice cream when we drove past it.
My mom told me that when there was a fire they would break open the water tower and flood the town. When i asked what happened to the people, she would say, "they drown." This was to keep me from playing with matches and starting fires.
My brother convinced me that water towers were big aquariums.(we lived in Maryland so it was believeable). I could just imagine all of the fish swimming around in there. He said the only reason we had a water filter was to keep the fish from getting through! I always tried to take the filter off the faucet because i wanted an exotic pet fish. It wasn't until we moved to a house without a water filter that i realized fish weren't coming through the pipes. My brother also blamed clogs on the fish saying there were too many in the pipe at the same time.
When I was younger, I always thought that water towers were rockets or something. And they DID look like rockets!
When I was little, my town had a big red water tower and it had a picture of Donald Duck on it. I remember that there was also a orange juice that Donald Duck on it. I thought that the water tower was filled with orange juice.
when i was 7 years old my brother told me that water towers would hold aliens and space ships inside. I belived this for one week and when my freinds laughed at me i knew not to trust my broyher anymore with belifes.
In my Nieghborhood there's about 20 kids that live(d) in it and we're all friends but wen we were in Elementary school we'd always go on bike rides together and there's a water tower right across the highway that's behind my house, that's where we usually rode our bikes to. There's a big door thingy on the side of the water tower so we thought that a guy lived there and we called him Walter Water, he couldn't talk and he couldn't come out cuz he would die if he came out of the water in the tower. so the only way he could communicate with us is if we banged on the sides of the tower and he'd answer back. But we did relize that our bangs echoed, and that no one was really banging back at us.
