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 horse lol
Mine was a horse too, and he used to jump from one patch of lamp light to the next at night.
i had a little smurf and when we went passed a car shop he would temporally have a car.
Never had a visual, just blinking as we passed lamp posts or every other dashed line
Every dashed like I like chomp down on my chewing gum. I chew it at each dash, or sometimes I’ll clamp my jaw down on it while we pass grassy areas but say when we pass another street or a driveway, where it happens to be there is no grass, I release my jaw.
I like to make lame cover art but i if you want to listen to one of these mixes all you have to do is click on its title below:
Ugh all your playlists are perfect but I LOVE Indie Summer. New soundtrack to my life.
