Did you have an imaginary friend?

Like Tree21Likes

I always thought having an imaginary friend was a normal and expected part of childhood, but I never, ever had one. The whole idea seemed silly and childish to me (even as a child).

The closest thing I had to an imaginary friend was a stuffed bunny my mother bought me after I was born (still have it). I slept with it for many years until my dog damaged it, so it's retired now

I did not. But, my 2nd son, Evan, had one. The friend's name was Robot-Evan. He lived under our pool, and had a secret passageway into Evan's room. He, naturally, spoke with a Robot accent. And he was often very naughty. He committed most of the crimes that Regular-Evan was falsely accused of.

I haven't had the pleasure of talking to Robot-Evan in many years. I miss him...

I didn't, which is strange now that I think about it, since I lived in my head a lot. I would make up all sorts of scenarios and mentally run with them, but I never made up an actual person to talk to.

I was anti-social even in my imagination.

I did. I was the baby of my enormous extended family. Apparently I got tired of it because my imaginary friend's name was Baby (which was/ is also my family nickname).

Baby was VERY naughty and she certainly was to blame for all the crimes I was falsely accused of. But she was also totally awesome and was my best friend for most of my young-childhood years.

ETA: My brother is only 14 months older than me and he had an imaginary puppy of whom I was vaguely aware.

My sister's daughter had an imaginary friend, named Roo. Roo was very tiny, and lived in the palm of my niece's hand. One time, my cruel older brother asked if he could hold Roo. My niece reluctantly passed Roo to him...and he promptly smashed Roo between his hands and wiped them on my niece's shirt. My niece was so traumatized. He was such a dick...
I'd pretend to hang out with cartoon characters and stuff. But no, I never had a personal imaginary friend.
No. And the concept seemed to me to be one of those very American things. As in, I'd never seen or heard of any Latin American kids who had imaginary friends, though more recently I've seen TV shows that portray the imaginary friend thing.

I did. Her name was Marissa. I wasn't very creative... Marissa was also the name of my best friend at the time. And if I remember correctly, the two of them were pretty much identical, personality-wise.

In case you were concerned, I always made sure to buckle her into the seat next to me when we were in the car. Ya know, "click it or ticket," and all that jazz.

Yup. His name was Joey and I used to pretend we were detectives like the gang on Scooby Doo.

I did but don't remember. My daughter had lots through the years. Jimmy and Sarah were the first ones. The last was naughty and couldn't go to Papa's (my dad's) house with her because Papa wouldn't like him. My son had one. Also named Luke who he called his brother. They would have pretend phone conversations and everything. One day DS locked him in the closet and never talked to him again. It was strange. Like he was locking away his imagination.

I did. His name was Fred Frinstone (did I just date myself?). He was very small, and went everywhere with me. According to my mom's stories, it took a long time for Fred to navigate the stairs to our second story apartment.

I used to teach preschool. One child told me lots of stories about her brother Robert. Eventually, her mom asked if she'd mention Robert. Apparently she desperately wanted a brother, so she invented one for herself. The stories were quite convincing.

I had an imaginary classroom of students who only existed in our downstairs bathroom. I distinctly remember having to keep the cabinet door under the sink open so that they couldn't see me pee.

Blame it on the cell phone...
Yes. Her name was Peggy.

Nope
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.
I did. It was a dog.

My daughter had imaginary mice friends (her hands were mice) as well as a whole load of imaginary friends and animals. She's outgrown it sometime in the last year.

My favorite imaginary friend ever is Soren Lorensen from Charlie and Lola.
I used to pretend I was my own sister.
