I was told by my Dad that I had to stay inside during a hurricane because the eye would spot me and come destroy the house. I think i was 14 when I stopped dreaming of this huge eye looking at me.
When I first came to the U.S. I was 5 years old and it was winter. A few days into the move to our apartment in NYC it had snowed overnight. When I first saw the snow I thought it was piles of sugar all over the streets. I asked my dad why there was sugar all over the streets, he laughed.
I used to believe rain were God's tears
Upon seeing a red sky when I was younger, I enquired as to what it was that made it that way. My dad told me the clouds were on fire.
I used to believe that rain was angel's pee =)
When I was little I thought that all clouds were made from aeroplanes, because they always left a line of "cloud" behind them in the sky
When I was little I thought that smokestacks were cloud machines. I was positive that the pollution pouring out of the top was the new clouds being released into the sky and that was how the weather man decided if it would be cloudy or sunny.
When I was a child I believed that the wind was caused by the world moving really fast through space. The more windy it was, the faster the world must have been spinning.
When i was was a kid i used to think that clouds were actually space ships fighting over earth and that rain happened when ever one got destroyed.
I believed that if I would blow in a certain direction, a strong wind would circle the entire earth and come from behind me in a few days.
When I was under 10 I used to believe that I could control rain. I called myself the queen of rain. I thought it rained if I wished so. I even had a red umbrella and I enjoyed walking in the rain and I always felt fine if it was raining. I could also stop raining ;)))
(I still love rainy weather.)
Up until the other day my friend thought that SPF 30+ sunscreen meant that the temperature had to be above 30 degrees for you wear it. I was the one to inform her that this was not the case.
I used to believe that when it rained in one place, it rained all over the world. When told that this wasn't true, I imagined that there was an imaginary line, and that one side would be intense rain, while the other, only few feet away, would be clear and sunny.
When I was young I used to believe that when it rained, God was peeing on the Earth. My grandma got mad.
I used to believe that when my parents said it rains in Washington all the time, it rains ALL THE TIME.
I was shocked when we were moving here and crossed the border and it was clear.
I'm almost 30 and just told my parents this one :)
I used to believe that the clouds passing by was evidence that the world was spinning and that windy days meant the planet was spinning extra fast.
For my entire childhood I was convinced that I could control the breeze just enough to move the leaves on trees if I focused hard enough. I used to sit in my backyard and stare down all of the trees, and watch as they began to rustle with the wind.
I am glad to say that I still believe in the power of the mind over all else.
When I was young, I thought "Isolated showers" was hail :)
When I was little I used to think that the sun would move with me while I was in the car.
I used to believe when I was 4 that when it rained, it rained across the whole world.
