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.
