When I was about eight my family went on an excursion to Maryland. On the way we passed a huge black dome, and curious, I asked my mother what it was. She informed me that it was a prison for the very worst criminals. The guard at the top would open the lid, and just throw you in. There was no cells, or bars or rules. All the inmates just fended for themselves. I thought this was just the scariest thing ever, and whenever we drove to Maryland after that I would wonder how they survived in that big black dome. Years went by, until I was well into my teens before it occured to me that it was not the dome of death, but a water tower...

This is my sisters'... When the family went on road trips, we would always see water towers. My sisters, upon hearing that they were water towers, always thought that they were giant water fountains, so they always begged my dad to climb up the water tower and get the family some water.

I was a really morbid child because till I was about 6 or so I refused to drink tap water unless I was forced to because I thought they kept all the dead bodies in the water tower to mummifiy them. One too many horror films....

When I was younger, I asked my mother what was in the water towers. ( Not knowing thats what they were. Hey! I was one and a half!!) My mother told me that people, and bad munchies ( children) were put in there if they didn't do what's right. One day, my younger cousin over flowed my aunts sink, and flooded the bathroom. We blamed it on our imaginary freinds, Mr.Hopples and his sister Bill. (Don't ask me why her name was bill..it just was...)Then, my mom and my aunt looked at each other, picked us up, and put us in the car. We asked them where we were going, and mom said the water tower. Mom and auntie came home, tempoarily deaf, and my cousin and I lost our voices.

I used to think those huge water towers that you see in the middle of the town held huge pools of water with alligators in them. I always wondered how they would get them out...

Not mine, but my daughter's. She was about 4 when we went camping at a local campground that had its own water tower. She believed that it was a space ship and that aliens had come camping from another planet. She looked for the aliens all weekend!

One time when I was little, me my brother and mother drived pass a water tower. My brother said something along the lines of "Wow, they can probably sqeeze a ton of water out of there". I still don't know why he said that, but I picture a bunch of people standing under it, squeezing it like they were milking a cow.

I used to think that the stuff in the toilet went to the water tower when you flushed it. Imagine my profound surprise when I was told that we got our bath and drinking water from the water tower as well! For a long time I would only drink soda and milk. I tried not to think about it when I was taking a bath.

When I was little I asked my Mom where water comes from. She told me that it comes from a water plant. After that I decided that inside water towers there were huge flowers that made water!
