When I was about 3 or 4 years old I thought that when it was snowing, God sent all children icecream... so I ate it.

When I was 7 walking back home from the park one day it was really windy. Annoyed with the wind because it was loud and making it harder to walk I stood there with a finger to my lips and shouted SHHHHHH. The wind calmed down. I was convinced for years that I had control over the wind and when was doing something outside an it was hot I used to tell it to give me a breeze. What didn't actually help was a breeze usually came along

When I was little, I thought a tornado was a "torn 'mato" and imagined a giant killer tomato with torn garments flying behind it like streamers as it raged through town.

When I was very young, every time I said the word 'rain,' or I heard someone say rain, it seemed to rain within that day if not the next day. I thought if you said rain, you could make it rain. If only that worked for real, then we'd never have any droughts! XD

I used to call the rays of light from the sun "sun BEANS". That's what it sounded like to me.

Because I lived in the tropics when I was little, I used to believe winter is only in December. In January and February it should be warm again. Imagine my surprise when I moved to Europe to study.

I used to believe that the softest bed in the world was one giant cloud that was shaped like a bed, but you had to be careful when you slept on it because if you got too comfortable you might fall through.

When I was in the 5th grade, I looked in the sky and saw the clouds moving. Then I told my teacher: "Teacher, I know how the world revolves around itself".

When I was little, I used to believe that the sun followed me everywhere, like a spy and moved willingly. When I got into the car I wanted this to be faster to escape from the sun and when I entered into the house looked out the window to see if it was gone ...

My parents encouraged us to call sun cream/ sun screen - 'SunSHINE cream!'.

Adorable when you're 4 but I didn't realise they'd added the ' shine' part until university.

Even now its really hard for me to just say sun cream... the other way is ingrained.

I used to think rain was invisible, like wind. When I realised I could actually see it if I tried hard enough, I thought I had superpowers.

One day when I was in about 2nd or 3rd grade, The news was on the TV in the other room, and I heard the news lady say that there was a "weak tornado" in Kansas. Well I thought she meant a "week tornado". I was so horrified that there was a tornado that lasted for a whole week! The next day I told my mom again how I couldn't believe there was a week long tornado, and then she cleared it up for me. I was so embarrassed.
