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.

When I was younger, I used to look out of the window of our car and see the Sun. Wherever we went, we could still see the Sun, and as a result I believed that the Sun was following us.

When I was little my parents told me tornadoes were afraid of water to keep me from having panic attacks when tornadoes came since we lived next to a lake. Freshman year, I was at my friends house and the tornado sirens went off. I told her not to worry because she had a pool in her backyard. Needless to say, I haven't heard the end of it.

When I was little, I believed my dad could stop the rain at any second while driving down the freeway. What I didn't notice was that he would shout "stop!" every time we would drive under an overpass. I finally figured it out around 7 or 8. :)

We learned in about 1st grade that clouds were made of water vapor. We also learned that water vaporizes at 212 F. I put 2 and 2 together and believed that clouds were scorching hot. One day while riding in the car through dense fog, i asked my mom what fog was made of. She said it was basically a cloud on the ground. I wondered how we'd get out of the car without being burned.
