It looks like The Girl has her first imaginary friend. While we were fixing lunch this weekend, she started talking about “Mister Buster”. She even played hide and seek with him for a few minutes. She didn’t mention him for the rest of the weekend, so I’m not sure if he is going to be just a one-time apparition or not. At this point all we know about him is that he’s really tall (like 6’5″ at least) and really bad at hide and seek since The Girl seemed to finding him hiding in the exact same spot a number of times.
Update (3/4/09): I had lunch The Misses and The Girl (who is recovering from a bout of Fifth Disease) today. Actually, I had lunch with The Misses, The Girl, and Mister Buster, so I guess he is a recurring character for the time being.
