I used to pretend that I was a twin named Patricia and my twin sister was named Beatrice (these were the names of two twin girls who went to my school.) In my imaginary family I had lots of younger siblings, including: Emily, the baby, Polly, Jonathan, Mary, who was a girl from school, and Dan, my real brother. I had two older siblings, Susan and Michael. I would always pretend that I had long golden hair and I was the prettiest one in the family and, well, you get the picture.

when I was seven i thought that that tingling feeling when the skin on your face tightens was my imaginary friend. I called it spirit and used to talk to it when i was at school. (I'd seen the tempest on tv and thought i had an aerial like that).

I was in fourth grade when i decided that I ought to have an imaginary friend. My first one was a pilgrim, and her name was Sandra. I imagined her walking under a schoolbus after about a week, though, because she didn't like to read.
Then came Kim. I hated her after three days, because she was too perfect. She was a shape changing fairy with blonde hair. I then imagined Kim spontaniously combusting, which was very fun.
Then came Elanor, my soul mate. She liked to read, was far from perfect, and she only stopped by when I wanted her. We lived happily ever after, to this very day.
"We're in love, aren't we, El?"
"Yes, dear, we are."

When I was little, I used to think that I had a man inside my head that would file my memories and sort out my dreams; chosing what I would dream and what happened during the day! He had a little pinstripe outfit and a purple tie. He seemed really real! It was ages before I believed my Mum that it was imaginary!

I've had two imaginary friends in my time. The first was called Bully, and was your standardised, everyone's got one, invisible friend. Were IKEA to sell imaginary friends then they would be like Bully, only called Boshtal or similar.

My second imaginary friend was not invisible, but rather microscopic. An antrhropomorphic representation of my immune system, I used to think he was responsible for killing germs and making me feel better. I remember one day comparing him to another friends microscopic friend, trying to determine which was the smallest.

When I was lil I believed that little people lived in the walls of my house, but instead of being scared of them they became my best friends. I thought they looked kinda like the little people on Fraggle Rock, and I would constantly walk around the house talking to them, imagining they were walking right next to me behind the wall.

When my five year old neice was going through the gibberish stage in her language development, a certain phrase, "Ponzi Wonzie," kept recurring. It didn't take long for her to develop the words that she needed to communicate, but Ponzi remained.

By the time she was two she was drawing pictures of Ponzi on the wall; a circle with a face inside it and lines radiating from it. "Ponzi is a boy, but he's a spider today."

After a while we didn't hear from Ponzi any more. Then one day last year we saw a commercial for a new cartoon on the Cartoon Network called "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends." After seeing that, Marie announced that that is where Ponzi was staying.

Since then Ponzi has been back in our lives full force. Usually he is a boy, but sometimes he is a grown up or even a spider. He has a whole changing ensemble of family and friends, and even his back story changes frequently. (She told me recently that Ponzi was Jewish and that he lived in Africa.) But Ponzi is consistently with us.

Sometimes Ponzi does things that Marie wishes she could do, like drive a car, and sometimes he does things that she does, like take swim lessons. He also does things that get Marie into trouble like making messes.

Occasionally the wind will blow open the front door and she will run to it shouting, "Ponzi! Shut the door when you come in! You'll let the dogs out!" Or if the dogs bark at nothing, she tells Ponzi to quit teasing them.

To me the most fascinating thing about Ponzi is that Marie sometimes uses him as an ice breaker. Whenever she meets some one new, particularly new adults (teachers, etc.) she opens with a Ponzi story. And when they ask who Ponzi is, she says, "Well, he's my imaginary friend."

Now when I run into people who have met Marie and Ponzi, they ask about both of them. In fact, some teenagers who work with my mother are even blaming Ponzi when they get into trouble now.

When I was 7 I used to have an imaginary friend called Calum Butters. I hated him, he was so annoying and pathetic. He'd say stuff and act stupid and I always used to get so angry at him. I hated him so much, but for some reason I could never get rid of him.

One day I was in my room and Calum was there along with loads of other imaginary friends (extras like in Star Trek). We had to defend my bedroom by shooting out the window because we were under attack from other invisible friends that belonged to people from other parts of the country.

We won, but Calum got killed. He never came back. None of them did.

I had a few imaginary friend as a kid.
The first that I can remember was Hobbes. My dad read Calvin and Hobbes a lot, and I did too, so I got a lot of ideas. After a while I got tired of him so shoved him into the paper shredder.
I also had a friend named Emily. My mom told me she liked the name, so I made her the sister I never had. I can never remember what happened to her, but I think I ditched her for Lindsay Lohan (or Halley) after seeing the Parent Trap.
The last one is Carrie. When I was in like fourth grade, I watched Carrie at a sleepover. I wasn't afraid of it, but intrigued by it. I pretended she hadn't died, and instead I made her my friend. She talked to me whenever Chris Hargensen would give her crap. Then I had to accept the fact that she did die. Live on, Carrie. You were always my favorite.

I used to believe I had elves with me wherever I went. I played and loved all my elf friends except Jasper who was mean to me and the other elves. One day my family (and elves) were hiking up Mt. Rainier when Jasper zipped past me to beat me to the top after a 3 mile hike uphill. He had been very mean during our trip to the mountain, so I sprinted the last 1/4 a mile to spite an imaginary elf.

This occured when I was thirteen.

When I was little I never had an imaginary friend (that I know of), but I did have an imaginary babysitter named Stacy. I would talk to her, and I especially remember doing it when we were on the boat and of all places in the shower.

when I was little, I used to have these imaginary friends called my 'ghost friends'. They were not evil, or nasty - except one; they all had different personalities. There was about 10 of them, and coming to think about it, they were most probably my concience. They lived in my head, and I used to always talk to them: they always told me what to do and decided my decisions for me. I used to blame them for everything - from stealing the cookies to burning my house down... I decided they got too mischevious and forced them out my head into a shoebox that I kept under my bed until they started behaving again. Unfortunately, I can't find the box so we must have left them behind when we moved :'(

When I was young, my imaginary friends were usually from Sonic the Hedgehog. For some reason, I would always make bets with them, and when I did, Sonic would come out of this invisible door that appeared in thin air and would give me money if I one the bet (This mostly happened in the bathroom). I sometimes still do this today.
