So last night there were some major rain storms. There was heavy rain, wind and even thunder and lightening. At one point the thunder was really loud. Ryan asked me what it was and I said, "Oh it's just God bowling."

When I was a kid and we would have bad storms, that's what my mom would say. So I thought I would pass down the story to Ryan. What harm could it do? It eases the mind and puts a great picture in your head. When someone said that to you, didn't you picture a big bowling league in heaven? My grandfather is there, God, some of the angels and they are all in cool bowling shoes and using gold bowling balls. Okay maybe it's just me.

I love that we have fun explanations for thunderstorms. What are some of your creative stories to explain scary situations that you have heard or told?
