You're basically killing each other to see who's got the better imaginary friend -- Richard Jeni

>> 31 July 2009

I am a fervent reader of Christine Kane's blog.

She started a reader's poll which I thought was really funny: your imaginary childhood friend.

It immediately sent me back to my childhood spent outdoors having all kinds of imaginary adventures and friends.

I had a whole life story plotted out. I not only had imaginary friends, but was an imaginary person myself with an imaginary life

I was Sam (Samantha) and had a twin sister called Amanda. We were from a family of 12 girls and our dad was the pirate Sandokan. Our mother was of course Lady Marianna.

I watched The tiger of Malaysia series all the time and must have had a crush on Kabir Bedi.

Since he could obviously not take care of 12 girls we were all sent to live somewhere else. I was sent to live in my family but would from time to time go back to Malaysia on holidays and have pirate-like adventures.

My plot was often spiced by my interest for books by Enid Blyton and Astrid Lindgren.

I was a strong independant child just like Pippi Longstocking and Ronja the Robber's daughter.

I had a whole plot where I pretended to be at boarding school just like in Malory Towers and St Clare's .

And I had my own detective club just like the Famous Five.

So who was your imaginary childhood friend?
