an imaginary friend


Imaginary Friend

does it count if you have an imaginary enemy?

what if the voices in other people's head told me to do it?

but what really surprises me
is that the steel plate in my head tells the FBI what to do

why are the voices in my head giving me the silent treatment?

what if my imaginary friend doesn't like me any more?

what if my imaginary friend is psycho?

what if your imaginary friend is smarter than you are?

where does your imaginary friend go to the bathroom?

what if your imaginary friend gets diarrhea?

what if your real friends like your imaginary friend more than they like you?

what if your imaginary friend believes it made you up?

what if your imaginary friend thinks you're delusional?

is it neurotic if your imaginary friend has an imaginary friend?

what if your imaginary friend's imaginary friend is neurotic?

do you get upset when your imaginary friend borrows your clothes
without asking?

can your imaginary friend access your real bank account?

would you steal from your imaginary friend's imaginary bank account?

what if your imaginary friend has insomnia?

if your imaginary friend has a lover overnight,
do you have to sleep on the couch?

would you be upset if you found out that
your imaginary friend was seeing a psychiatrist?

what if your imaginary friend has no imagination?

does your imaginary friend watch when you go to the bathroom?

do you watch when your imaginary friend goes to the bathroom?

does your imaginary friend ever wet the bed and then blame you?
