Heather and I were talking tonight, and I revealed to her that I had an imaginary friend when I was little. His name was "Johnice," a combo of my parents' names, John and Janice. Heather stopped, and seemed somewhat frightened when she learned this. "Did you see him? What did he look like?" she prodded for details. I wasn't actually sure, mainly because I was so young. I just kind of remember the idea of the imaginary friend existing and telling my parents about him.
Heather's line of questioning continued, like a grilling: "Where did he come from? Did your parents think you were strange for having this 'friend?' You must've been a lonely child." It was like I had revealed a horrifying secret to her, thinking, "I'm getting married to a guy who had an imaginary friend growing up! How will I ever live this down?!?!"
So my question - anyone else out there have an imaginary friend, or am I the only crazy one out there?
(I would post a picture of my imaginary friend, but he hasn't been around much lately...)
