My Imaginary Friend

When I was a little tiny thing, small enough to fit in the kitchen sink, I had an imaginary friend. I don't know where this friend came from, how long he was around, or what he and I did together but according to my family I spoke of him often. I wonder if this made my little brother jealous. Knowing my brother, probably not. The only thing I do remember is one day when my grandmother was washing my hair she asked where Sobo was. Yep, my friend's name was Sobo. I'm very creative. Anyway, I recall looking around and not seeing him so I said "He's gone." That's it. My entire memory consists of that brief moment of looking around for an imaginary friend that looks just like my brother and not seeing him so he must be gone. To this day my grandmother believes that imaginary friend is my spirit guide and still with me every step through life. A spirit guide is sort of a guardian angel. The more I think about the situation I think maybe I was looking for my brother and Sobo was my nickname for him. Maybe I never had an imaginary friend. I just talked to my brother whether or not he was there. OR maybe it's the Demon (see labels) I spoke of in previous posts! Whoa, I think I might be on to something. Maybe I've just been a loon since birth.

I don't know if my imaginary friends can be considered guardian angels cause they are always giving me bad advice and getting me into trouble.

Well, I better stop there cause they're reading this over my shoulder right now.

I hate it when they do that. ;-)

Absolutely, ador-a-ble picture. Adorable...adorable. I just can't quit saying it.

I don't think it was a demon. Do you recall the faucet in the sink spraying water upside down, or your brother's head spinning? That's the kind of havoc that demons cause... at least on cartoons. ;)

Ah... Imaginary friends. I still have them - although these days they are imaginary girlfriends ;)

Thank you for visiting. Like your blog too, and I'll be back to haunt you ;)

I wasn't popular enough for an imaginary friend.

I'm back, btw.
