Writer's Block: Too scary!!  
Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?


Of course. I was afraid of drains. This included shower drains, sink drains, even toilets and sometimes pool filters. I was afraid my toys would get sucked down a drain, so I'd be very careful when I brushed my teeth, sometimes "forgot" to flush the toilet, and never took a shower, only baths.

I was a strange child, and very attached to my toys. :)

I was afraid of them too. My mother tried to talk sense into me by telling me that since my duckie wasn't getting sucked down the drain, and I was bigger than the duckie, then I was safe. I told her without missing a beat that the drain liked my duckie more. Self esteem issues? Conspiracy theorist? Who knows. :)

This is a common fear with kids. P is just growing out of it (and is flushing again).
