When I was small (I forgot around what age), I asked my mom something along the lines of "how do people die", or "why do people die?" and she responded, if I can remember correctly:
"Angels see humans as flowers, and pick only the most beautiful ones for their gardens."
Well, she lied, but at least it was cute and creative, lol.
What are some of the strange/silly things your parents said when you asked them questions to things you wanted to know as a child?
