[Q] A continuous random variable example with a higher stdev than the mean? (pref. normal distribution)

I’m trying to explain the distribution of stock return to a teen. FYI, S&P500 return (annualized) has a mean of 7-12% and and stdev of 13%-20%.
What will be a good analogy to stock return? I asked the same question in other subs (investing, fire, personalfinance, etc) but nobody could find a similar example.
