Daily Prompts: Imaginary Friend

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

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 did not have imaginary friends, I was busy playing with my siblings, there was never a moment when I could think of imaginary friends. If I wasn’t busy with my siblings, I was doing chores for my Mom.It hardly left enough time for me to imagine anything.

I had a friend in school in the lower grades. She was quite nice, but her attendance in school, left a lot to be desired. Her parents were wealthy, she was the only child. I presume they didn’t care much about her education.

During our summer vacation,  my Dad passed away. I didn’t get  a chance to say  goodbye to my friend.

We were in the process of leaving the city to go to Bangladesh, my parents’ original home. I  lost contact with her, but wondered what she was doing.

My guess is she may not have continued her education after high school. Her parents  probably were anxious to see her married, if nothing else she could produce grand kids for them.

My non-imaginary friend I think is happily married, she has multiple servants at her beck and call; she certainly has no time to think of her childhood friend.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing with us this interesting post. It’s a funny world in which we live.

    It’s one in which we have those early childhood friends like you describe here. Most of those friends we knew then are now somewhere else, doing who knows what.

    And now…we have new friends. And even they eventually leave us, or we leave them, if only due to the end of our lives.

    Let us enjoy this present moment of friendship :).

    All good wishes,

    robert
