I’ve never actually had an imaginary friend or even a real one.
That’s a fact that’s been pointed out by some of the people I’ve met through my blog and Twitter feed, but it’s one that’s rarely mentioned.
But that’s what happened to me on my birthday.
And it’s a sad one, too.
I was feeling a bit lonely, so I decided to make a friend to celebrate.
As my birthday approached, I realized I didn’t have a friend, but a random character I’d seen in some online comic book fanfiction, and thought I’d give him a shot.
“I’m gonna give this guy a try,” I said to my friend, as I scribbled a few random letters into a notepad.
I asked him to sign it.
“I’ll be happy to.”
I signed my name with a smiley face.
He didn’t even look up from his notepad, and the two of us just stared at each other for a few seconds.
I guess it took me a while to realize that he wasn’t a real person, but I was sure that I knew it.
He was just some random character in an online cartoon.
I just wanted to see if he was real, and it seemed like a good idea.
I kept scribbling random letters and words into my notepad until I was finished.
When I got home, I typed “Might as well see what it was like for real,” into the search box on Google and found a few of the fanfictions I mentioned above.
The result was this cartoon character:I typed back my name and sent him a message, but his reply wasn’t too long.
He told me that he liked the name, and that he was “just a random guy.”
I didn, however, tell him what it meant, and he didn’t seem to care about it.
I thought maybe he liked it because he wanted to.
He seemed to have a good point.
I figured he was just making it up as he went along.
I was wrong.
It turned out he was actually the creator of a cartoon.
This was actually a real-life event that happened to him.
I found out later that he had a lot of people following him, and when I asked people to look up his account, they couldn’t.
It turns out that it was the creator’s daughter who had a real birthday party and wanted to meet her dad.
That was his birthday.
He didn�t want to let her go, so she was the one to send him the note.
And since I was having a birthday party, I wanted to make sure it was for real, too, and so I put a link to his page in my Twitter feed.
I told my friends and family about it, and they were happy to see a random person’s name and birthday on the internet.
I didn�te have a birthday myself, so we never knew exactly who the cartoon was supposed to be, but we assumed it was a fictional character because of the way he had created it.
My friends were happy that he thought it was cool to share his creation with the world, and I think he really appreciated it.
We talked about it with my dad and a few other friends.
He thought it might make some people think twice about going out to have fun, and his birthday party had been such a success that it seemed to give people a reason to celebrate the holidays.
I got to hang out with the creator in person, and we had a great time.
I can’t imagine what his daughter might be feeling.
He’d been kind enough to share this with me, and if I were him, I’d want to share it with her as well.
I still have some more ideas for future birthday party events, but if you’re having a difficult time deciding whether or not to make it a real thing, I recommend that you find someone who is a real cartoon character and then make a wish.
The funny thing is that I’m probably not the only one who’s been to the internet and made up a random and imaginary friend.
There’s a lot out there.
