Imaginary Friend Many of us had imaginary friends as young children. If your imaginary friend grew up alongside you, what would his/her/its life be like today? (Didn’t have one? write about a non-imaginary friend you haven’t seen since childhood.)
I must admit that I never had an imaginary friend when I was a child as I had enough friends to not have the need. Thanks to social media all the friends from childhood I have wanted to keep in touch with I have. In a way the world became smaller with the advent of Facebook and Friends Reunited and has partially negated the need for school reunions. Something I am glad because I always thought the idea of a school reunion akin to the setup of an Agatha Christie mystery: A group of random people meeting on a particular date, particular time and location with only a slight connection to one another. Nothing sinister at all in that is there?
There are only a few people whom I am not in contact with any more that I would like to be: A college friend from my Digbeth days called Sabina Stent who was a smart and funny young lady of goth persuasion, we were frequent working partners and shared an interested in macabre and surreal stuff. Also we both fond of Buffy and Angel, so that was always a good safety net for chat.
The other is Andrea Gardiner, my long lost Jazz loving friend from Michigan, I often ponder trying to get back in touch and see if we can put the fall out behind us. One day… yes, one day…
