1. Were you scared of thunderstorms when you were a child?
2. Did your parents use any euphemisms (about thunderstorms) to make you feel better? Did it work?
3. What euphemisms did your parents (or teachers or whatever) use? Which is your favorite? Did one work better than the other?
4. If you have kids (or are around kids), do you use the same euphemisms to make them feel better? Does it work for them?
FYI, all these questions are about thunderstorms, if I worded them weird. ;)
This might prove useful for my psychology class later on, so this entry is going in my memories. :)
