Something very cool has happened! I was never able to actually see Katherine’s imaginary friends but now I can catch a flash of color if they are around.
I asked Katherine if she noticed a purple streak pass through the room.
” That’s Zabby all right Grandma. Watch.” Katherine turned off the kitchen light and pointed to the floor. ” See? There are her purple footprints on the floor. They glow in the dark.”
” That is so cool! Why is Zabby here today Katherine?”
” The bowling alley is closed on Wednesdays. She has the day off. Look Grandma, there’s a green streak.”
” I’ll bet that Alodda is here too! Green is her favorite color.”
Katherine turned out the light again and pointed to the floor. “Yup, you’re right Grandma. Alodda came over.”
Then I asked,” Where’s Arthur?”
“His swimming class isn’t going very well so he may come by too. Watch for a silver and gold streak and that will be Arthur.”
You can’t imagine how much fun it is watching for colors.
Meanwhile, Kat told me something else that I hadn’t considered. She said that real people read stories about imaginary people and imaginary people read stories about real ones.
I wonder if I leave a glowing color? I’ll ask the expert named Katherine and get back to you.
