When was the last time you used those words??? I loved to pretend....now I call it Imagine. But i used to pretend all the time, pretend and play were my two favorite things. Pretend was for us kids that didn't have expensive toys, it made us use our imagination. Some of my friends had Barbie Model homes, with a kitchen and living room, I had a little black stool with yellow formica top that my dad made for us and when you turned it on it's side it had a cross brace that turned into a Barbie kitchen counter and a rolled up rag rug that was Barbie and Ken's couch, it was a 32" long couch but it could be shared with my brothers GI Joe and Midge. I used to pretend I had a horse, a painted pony none the less, because I saw an Indian movie with a painted pony and so that was the horse for me, I would ride it all over by galloping and holding the fake reins in my hands...a little slap on the butt made it go faster too. One kind of rainy day we made mud/sand pies in our sand box/restaurant, with a board over our laps. Now I pretend my house work gets done, I pretend all sorts of scenarios, we don't call it pretend when we get older, we call it Imagine....and that's not a bad thing either.
I finally convinced the Igster to pee on the snow covered deck yesterday, finally at least once, it's his afternoon pee. This morning I went to start the car and I have a pee stream frozen down my drivers side windshield, (my deck is above my car) I think I heard him chuckle a little.....I can't win?
