Being the highly intelluctual child that I was, I always knew that lightning was NOT flashes of fire from the sky, but were bright yellow yo-yos.
Thunder was when the yo-yos broke.
I used to believe that thunder was god playing the drums and lightning was when a lightbulb in gods house burnt out, and it would flash. Then when I got a little oler, I thought that thunder was clouds banging together.
I used to believe when it thundered that god was moving his furniture around.
i used to believe when llightning struck the ocean all the fish had died because iif you were in a pool and lightning struck that youd die
I used to believe that if you were on the computer or wacthing tv when there was thunder and lightning,lightning would zap you and it would come out of your tv or computer and when there was thunder and lightning i was scared
My mother told us that God was rolling great barrels of water toward the devil! It wasn;t hard to imagine this happening during the thunderstorms in northern Australia. I imagined this happened just on top of the thick grey clouds and wondered why it took so long for God to finally aim right and hit the devil
When I was about 2 or something, I thought that God had this huge pet dog up in heaven. So I ended up thinking that thunder happened whenever the dog was running away from God and the rain was the dog's pee. ^_^;
When I was in my beginning years of school, I used to think that thunder-storms was the Wicked Witch of the West coming to get me. This was right after I saw Wizard of Oz for the first time, it was also when I thought that every storm turned into a tornado.
When i was little i used to like the show "Alf" a whole lot. I was scared of thunder so my dad told me that Alf was up in the sky making all those sounds, I believed him and wasn't scared anymore! i still believe that Alf is the one doing it!
When I was little I was so afraid of storms. I remember everytime it would start thundering I would run to my room and grab my special blankie and suck my thumb. When I turned about ten my mom told me that if kids my age were afraid of storms then that meant that they were more likely to get struck by lightening. This scared me so much that I permanently carried around my blanket as I thought that when I had it I wasnt afraid anymore. Well, lets say that my fear of storms wasn't just a small fear it was deeprooted as Id been in a terrible tornado when young.
I used to think thunder sounds were called "Boombies" and I would say
"Boombies!" if I heard lightning.
Me and a friend were caught out in a thunder storm once, i sat and told her that it was zeus having a battle with another god on metal chariots, and everytime there was a flash of lightining and a rumble, it was the chariots colliding and one of them falling over.
When I was very young, I asked my mother what thunder was, and to this day (I'm 38) I still picture this when it thunders:
"It's God playing with his marbles."
Whenever there was a storm I was terrified that lightning would jump through the windows and kill me. I believed drawing the curtains was the only thing to stop this, and i made my mum close all the curtains in the house.
when I was about 4 or 5 I thought that if you stayed outside during a thunderstorm the wind would wisk you off into the clouds so you could eat them! lol!I was disappointed when my mom made me come inside the house!
I used to believe that when there was a storm, God was moving furniture around and lightning was God taking a picture of his new result and thunder was him destroying it because he didn't like ir afterall. I couldn't understand how come God moved his furniture so much! :)
When I was little I was very frightened of thunder - even if it was far away. To stop me being frightened my Mum used to reasure me that any noises that I heard were only Concord.
I only realised this a few years ago (I'm 30!!) when I realised Concord really couldn't fly over us so many times!
When we were young, we were quite frightened by thunder. Our mum explained us not to worry, that it was only Jesus who was roller-skating on the clouds... That argument definitely made us smiling during rainy days !
I used to believe that when it thundered it was God moving the furniture around up in heaven!
When I was little I used to think that thunder and lightning was God having a party in heaven with Jesus because they got bored up there. I thought that the thunder was the loud music or someone passing out on the floor, and the lightning was the strobe lights. Boy was I taught to believe wierd things! I suppose it's because my mum thought I was too young to understand science when I was 3 :D
