    Did you have an imaginary friend growing up? Not that you remember but what you have heard, and...

    if so, do you believe in ghosts?

    I believe we have an angel on each shoulder, and one standing behind us. Never had an imaginary friend. Even an imaginary one is still a friend, so how then is it imaginary?

    I didn't have one growing up, but I have lots of emo bunny friends now, but they're not imaginary, I am. smile

    Yes, I believe in ghosts.  The question is: do ghosts believe in me?

    Yes, I did have an imaginary friend when I was small.  I have vague recollections (or they may just be based on what I was told by my parents).  The friend's name was "Bucky Shadow" based on the folk song/rhyme, "Bobby Shaftoe went to sea, Silver buckles on his knee, He'll come back and marry me, Pretty Bobby Shaftoe" (or something like that).  I was an only child at the time, and quite lonely for the company of other children.  We lived in a suburb of Vancouver.  One day I told my father he couldn't use the bathroom because "Bucky Shaftoe is on the toilet" (of course this story has had a long shelf-life). 

    Another time I followed a little boy home and recall being brought back in a police car.  I apparently gave the little boy my new stocking cap, just to be his friend, I imagine. And I don't imagine my parents were too distressed about the given-away cap, although it seemed to come up quite a lot as I grew up.  I remember that he had a maid who looked just like "Aunt Jemima" on the pancake package in that she was West Indian and had a kerchief like Aunt Jemima on.  I can't remember how Bucky Shaftoe figures into that story, sorry.

      oh, and I believe that 'ghosts' are evil manifestations meant to take our attention away from the path our Creator would have us follow.
