There’s no denying kids say some weird stuff. And we’re not talking the cutesy things that parents like to share on the internet just because hearing adult words come out of small humans is something parents obsess over like it’s some novelty.

Writer Lilah Sturges solicited others’ experiences when she recently asked for folks to share the “eeriest thing a child has ever said to you.”
She kicked off the thread with a story of her own daughter, who, when she was around four or five, “calmly insisted that she had once been married to a man named Brad Huffington. When we asked what had happened, she replied with a note of sadness, ‘He was lost at sea.’”
