when i was little and my parents were driving id pretend there was a man/being/thing running alongside the car who had to follow certain rules like “he can only travel by jumping from streetlight to streetlight” or “he can only walk on fences”
i was so surprised to find out that other people did similar things
i wonder what the underlying psychology behind it is
like its a really specific thing to do but almost everyone did it without telling other kids about it because we all thought it was probably weird or unimportant
I never did this and wow I can’t even tell you how creepy this is to me.
I thought I was the only one.
Yeah a huge portion of people have this imaginary traveler or car-chaser.
To this day, even when I’M driving, a part of my mind imagines something is hopping and running alongside the car, dodging or simply chopping through every street sign and telephone pole.
Sometimes I find myself twitching the muscles in my hand or foot with every “jump,” like I’m controlling the being in a video game.
I did almost the same thing too. except it was with the car and not some being next to it.
my heart actually skipped a beat when i saw this because it literally never has crossed my mind that other people did this too. whoa…
