when i was little and my parents were driving id pretend there was a man/being/thing running alongside the car who had to follow certain rules like “he can only travel by jumping from streetlight to streetlight” or “he can only walk on fences”
i was so surprised to find out that other people did similar things
i wonder what the underlying psychology behind it is
like its a really specific thing to do but almost everyone did it without telling other kids about it because we all thought it was probably weird or unimportant
i really hope that a psychologist sees this and will post the physiological reason why 99.9% of kids do this
My imaginary runner did not look this terrifying.
I didn’t have an imaginary runner, but I did feel a compulsion to blink between passing street posts. I’m almost 22 and still do it.
Mine was usually a cat or fox
Mine was a character from the cartoon I watched at the time(even then I loved fictional characters)
I had a whole team of them. One is a skater, one is a ballad dancer, one is a ninja, one is an athlete.
I’ve never heard of this???! What the actual fuck? Why haven’t I heard of this? What is wrong with you people??
I did this at school to avoid eye contact. My man was tiny though and he could only run on handrails or cracks in the walls.
Mine was usually a dinosaur or cat, but occasionally a person.
One of my friends imagined Pocahontas.
I’m looking forward to seeing how many people did this as kids.
this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
