My wife spent two weeks babysitting her nieces after their babysitter suddenly quit, and apparently during one of her days with the kids the youngest (4) said to her mom "When I grow up I wanna be a witch."
Her mom was startled, as they don't own any movies or watch any TV shows with witches. She asked her, "Why do you wanna be a witch when you grow up?"
The 4 year old looked at her and said "You don't know?" and then just walked away without explanation.
