Imaginary Friends


Did any of you have imaginary friends as a child? I didn't, but one of my cousins did and so did my son. His had a first and last name, blonde hair and blue eyes, and alternated from being six years old to a sixteen year old cheerleader. Creative, I thought.

One of my all-time favourite films covers this topic - it's pure early 90s, but stars Rik Mayall. What happens when your imaginary friend comes back when you're a grownup.

And the title might be helpful - Drop Dead Fred.

I remember that movie! Don't think I saw the whole thing, though. Came in apparently after the premise was set up, and couldn't figure out why this evil guy was allowed to hang around...

I didn't need an imaginary friend. I had a younger brother who I kept imagining was imaginary... :) We get on well now, though...

I often wished my siblings were imaginary, at least when I was younger, but I never did have a "real" imaginary friend.

I was the youngest! I used to wish to be an only child! No imaginary friends needed.

Gorilla Boy seemed to have direct communication to the dogs. They would spend hours in the backyard exploring. We first noticed his spatial and mechanical abilities when he helped them break into the vegetable garden - a place they had been longing to get into.

Great, fun post! Love the imaginary friend! And yes, we had a few of those around!

My imaginary friend is my best friend!

Only children have imaginary friends more than those of us with siblings, I'd imagine. We fantasize about being only children. I used to say I was an only child with a brother. Now I introduce him as my sister-in-law's husband. Yes, I'm a first-born. Why do you ask? :-)

Cyber friends are real! :-)
