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
OTHER PEOPLE DID THIS ????
WOAH GLAD I WASN’T ALONE
Now I am really worried that we all did this.. did this really happen or something?
Wuuuut, other people did this? I always pictured them as Gargoyles characters because I loved that show.
For me it was usually Medabots, but sometimes Sonic the Hedgehog.
OTHER PEOPLE DO THIS?
ya’ll are creepy as fuck
omg i used to imagine a woman doing acrobats and leaping from anything taller then the ground - trees, buildings, etc.
though i also sometimes imagined a blade cutting down everything the was directly next to the car, so maybe i didn’t like her that much?
I always imagined something next to the car. It was never really the same thing twice but yeah no I still do stuff like this during long road trips where I’m not driving
we should all be committed
Holy shit, other people did this? I used to imagine it as a big cat.
I used to imagine a dragon running next to the car who could only walk on grass (so if we turned onto a street with no grass next to it it just looked sad and dejected at the corner and I always felt SO BAD), but while I was walking on the sidewalk I would imagine that the axles of passing cars (esp on side streets) were shooting out lasers that couldn’t pass over the grassy bits between the sidewalk and the road, so I couldn’t be standing in a driveway while they passed or it’d get me.
(I may or may not still feel weird being in a driveway while a car passes, but at least now I very rarely sprint to get to a grassy bit.)
Whoa. Mine didn’t have rules about where they could walk but mine were Yoshis… sometimes a dragon flying.
Kids are pretty cool…
