Did anyone else do this as a child?
You go to the loo, flush it and then run like hell down the stairs before the noise of the flush can reach it's loudest. It was a feeling of being chased by something that you had summoned. I would sometimes leap the entire flight in two or three jumps, even in broad daylight.
Yes! Thank you! - I haven't thought about it for ...um ...many years, but yes I did that. I wonder how old I was. If I was older than nine, we had moved and no longer had an 'upstairs'.
