A lot of these creepy or strange stories have to do with one or both parties sleeping, and that’s to be expected – maybe the kids were still dreaming, or maybe the parents were. It still doesn’t change the fact that this story, which has a two-year-old claiming to talk to a distant family member, is pretty creepy.
Right after the son said hello, the parents found out that the same family member had just passed away. Saying hi to an invisible friend is one thing…but just after her very real death? That kid is psychic!
Just Like Grandma Used to Sing
Having a grandmother teach a grandchild a classic song from the old country isn't all that odd. It's actually pretty endearing. However, the grandmother is usually alive. Not so here. In fact, Grandma passed away before the son in question was even born. So how on Earth did he start singing a Polish nursery rhyme when he was only three years old?
According to the writer, the family didn't speak Polish at all. Was it from a friend? A preschool teacher? A different family member who escaped notice? We'd really like to find out because this one is wild.
Cool, Cool, Hey, Let's Start Packing and Never Stop
Lots of us, as kids, have imaginary friends. Someone to practice talking with and playing with when the real friends are away. Of course, not all of them are like a stuffed tiger named Hobbes – some of them are hiding secrets. Such as the imaginary friend that this person's now-adult child had, who was named Eliza.
Eliza was sad that the family was moving away since the rest of her family had died. Why give made-up friends such tragic backstories? Give them a good life!
We Get the Feeling This Kid Was Just Weird
Yeah, look, this story might be creepy and all, but if the kid you're babysitting says something like this and then bites you, we think you have bigger problems to deal with. We hope he didn't turn her into a vampire.
If she's also a vampire now, she probably wouldn't include that piece of information. He seems to know a little bit too much about the mythology of these creatures, however. Maybe get that kid out in the sun a little bit. Not because vampires like the sun, but because then he'll be playing outside and not in the basement.
These Kinds of Stories Happen a Lot
One woman by the name of Rainbow Johnson says that she had a bit of extra-sensory perception when she was but four years old. After delivering the news that her uncle had died, her mother admonished her not to be so morbid.
Moments later, the phone rang. Perhaps it's just statistics – eventually, if enough people say random things, one of them will turn out to be true. But WHY, then, does it so often happen with little kids saying that a family member has died? And yet, there is the proof. Nobody would lie on the internet.
