The English weather is weird. I thought I had seen it all until last week. Yeah it was a typical summers day only hotter. I was in my Geography class fanning myself wishing that instead of the intense summer heat that it would snow.

The next day it was around eighteen degrees in the morning. When I got to school, it was drizzling. I stayed outside till the bell rang and then went to my first lesson. I was sitting down and I heard a startling sound. It was loud and then there was a flash of light.

"It's thunder. Perhaps lightning." I heard Melanie shriek.

"Oh.... How do you know?" I asked out of interest. I knew it was a stupid question. Obviously it was a thunder or lightning.

What she replied confused me. "You know because light travels further than sound. You can see the light before you hear the sound. When you hear the sound, you know how far away it is. So for every second is every Km the thunder is away. Thunders are electrical."

That was not what I asked but I now understood that it was light and sound and electricity. When I went out to my surprise, it was raining..... Raining mentos? Seriously mentos.

"It's raining mentos!!" I cried out.

"No it's not. They are hail stones. "Said Melanie laughing.

"Hail stones are small and blocky shaped." I then said. I was trying to proof a point.

"Then these ones are round." She argued.

I did not bother arguing back.

What I decided to do was prove it to her and everyone else that they were mentos. I wanted to prove anything was possible, like cats and dogs raining. I then bent down and picked a hand full of them. I was hesitant but I put it in my mouth... and guess what? They weren't mentos. It was ice and it melted in my mouth. Only joking, they were mentos!! Mint mentos.

I then laughed.

"They are. Try one." I gave it to her and she ate it. She then screamed and frowned and me.

"They are mentos!"
