Get to Know Me: Imaginary Friends

I’m a member of an author/book reader facebook group, and the admins ask great questions. I decided to turn some of the questions into a “get to know me” series. I would also love to hear your answers to the questions posed in the series. Thanks Helen for asking such fun questions!

Did you have an imaginary friend as a child?

I didn’t have an imaginary friend, but my cousins and I would pretend the bottom of the deep end of the pool (9 ft) was our house. We’d swim to the bottom, sit in different spots, pretend we were doing things. Wild to think about now. We spent a lot of time swimming, so we could hold our breath a decent amount of time.

When my 19 year old special needs daughter was younger, she used to have an imaginary twin. When she would get admonished for something, she would always say, it wasn’t me. That was the other Lillian. 🤣 😂

She also used to sleep walk. She woke me up one night as she was in my closet, having a conversation with someone. That happened several times throughout her younger years.

What about you?
