Tell us a funny story about play? When I was about two years old, I had an imaginary friend. I was a late talker so I didn't say many words, but my imaginary friend and I had our own language. My mom said it was just gibberish, but I would "talk" in this strange language to my imaginary friend. Often, while riding in the car, she and I would carry on long conversations. No one else knew what I was saying, but she sure did.
