Real talk: does anybody have imaginary friends anymore?

You guys remember imaginary friends: those brain buddies that you had when you were a kid that were the best thing ever.

But tell me flock: does anybody still have them?

This is one of those strange concepts that is always taboo. It’s bad enough for a child to have imaginary friends. What will the other children think! 

Of course, psychology is starting to approve of imaginary friends for children. The jury’s still out on adults, though. In fact, a recent fad known as Tulpa has the internet trying to split their brains in what I can only describe as extreme imaginary friend making.

I recently began thinking about all of this after the premiere (and rapid cancellation) of Imaginary Mary, a show about a woman whose childhood imaginary friend returns after she starts dating a guy with kids.

Contrary to the dismal score on Rotten Tomatoes, I thought the show was great. But that’s getting off-topic.

I really want to know where you, my flock stand on the idea of imaginary friends. Did you have one. Do you still have one? Do they have a name? A favorite flavor of ice cream? Leave your story in the comments below.

    Now that’s an interesting question 🙂 I don’t believe I had any imaginary friends as a child…but, in my adolescence, my friends and I would make up imagined identities for ourselves (made up names and backgrounds)….that was forever ago, but we sure delighted in pretending to be much glamorous than we could ever realistically be in future 🙂 Thanks for triggering this memory 🙂
