as told to me by my almost-four-year-old daughter
Faery (this is her codename): Mommy, Halloween is scary. Because the aliens always come to earth, and they come into my room and go into my closet. And they steal my underpants.
Me: Oh, is that what they do?
Faery: Yes. They go into the closet and they take my underpants to space!
Me: Well, we'll have to keep watch then, won't we?
Faery: Yes. Because I want to keep my underpants.
