Probably best suited to a classroom or library, readers will appreciate the lighthearted approach –

When someone is speaking- a grown-up, let’s say-

There’re exceptions to that, but they’re rare.
They occur in those instances where lightning is flashing its bolts from the sky
and they’d land on your friend, or at least land nearby.”
