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
Or maybe we actually did see it but then as we got older we repressed it because it was terrifying.
I imagined a panther so idk
oh god i did this too, mine was like a faceless pale naked emaciated man like a cross between slenderman and the rake. i only recently stopped doing it actually
Mine tightrope walk on powerlines
I wonder what it says that mine was a pegasus WHICH I WAS RIDING, rather than sitting in the car watching it. Occasionally we would swoop away and go check out something interesting or save puppies from a burning building or hoof some bully in the face, then catch up later. Did I mention my hero complex?
Mine could only run on the curb for local roads or the divider on either side of the highway. If there was neither of those, he/it had to use power lines.
Get out of there cat, u r not bread
he fell asleep. he fucking fell asleep.
