Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!
“Do you want me to tell you how I’m scared of drains? When I was little I must have saw something that was scary or terrifying and its stuck with me because I refused to go near the drains in pools or bath tubs and I refused to use other people’s toilets. So I would always have to go home to go to the bathroom or I would just often pee my pants because my parents wouldn’t take me home, because they were obviously annoyed if I was like six or seven and this was going on. Eventually I got over the toilet thing. I never got over the drain thing. I am still very very scared of them in pools, like I keep a five to ten foot radius away from them. But recently I got home from Belize and my toilet was empty without water and I have no idea why. I didn’t know what to do and I was scared to mess with it because it scares the crap out of me, so I didn’t use the bathroom for a really long time. I think I must have saw something when I was little, like those movies where you see people get sucked down drains and it scared the living daylight out of me and I was terrified ever since. And now I still am and it transfers over to basically all plumbing.” – Tiffany Rush
