#MidnightMadness – 4/26/2017

As a child, I never quite understand the purpose or point of imaginary friends.  Maybe it was the fact that I disliked the real friends I had so much, that there was no possible way I would have ever wanted to make more of them in imaginary form.  All of my children have had imaginary friends, so it sort of got me wondering why I never did.  Have any of you ever had an imaginary friend?

  9. Sometimes I think they’re all imaginary 😉 (I’ll admit, I stole this from Calvin and Hobbes…)

  13. Never had a specific and ongoing entity, but I gave personalities to my stuffed animals and many other things around me, and I often spoke to imaginary characters and then spoke their parts back to me when playing. And especially the stuffed animals seemed to have a mind of there own. They were very distinct from each other in ideas and behavior and some of them were quite cheeky too. 🙂

  14. Oops…meant to put the last comment in as the other me… sherijkennedyriverside. I don’t think FreeValleyPublishing has imaginary friends, though we definitely have plenty of characters…lol!

  15. I sort of did the same… I created an entire world in which I would secretly escape into and tell my younger sister I was actually one of the characters in my other world. It used to freak her out. Since she was the younger sibling, she believed everything I said…. lol…. Oh my poor sister…. she still gets on my case about it and it’s been about 35 years since…. lol…

  17. The FreeValleyPublishing Comment above was actually me. FreeValleyPublishing doesn’t have imaginary friends, but we do have plenty of characters. 🙂 Sometime I forget to sign out and back in. I get confused with so many ‘me’s’. I have too many blogs. Does that mean I’m my own imaginary friend?

  20. It’s funny because I can imagine you as a little boy putting on a pouty face and being stubborn enough to not want any friends. I’ve seen this look on my own girls. lol…. Why feel bad?

  22. Your Mom radar is strong, because that’s exactly how I used to be as a kid.
    I feel bad for a couple reasons. One, because I’ve been told that online friends aren’t real friends so I’m having a hard time reconciling that with my own beliefs, and two, because I don’t want to waste people’s time…my mind is complicated

  23. Leaves me to wonder why some people do and others don’t.

  24. Well, I can picture you as if I had been there. 😉 Online friends are real friends. In fact, one of my friends that I grew up with, went to visit her online friends and even married one of them! Lol…
