Did you know my first imaginary friend was a snail named Seemi? Unless you are a member of my immediate family, I bet you didn’t.
Geez, I was a weird kid. (But apparently incredibly clever – an imaginary friend named “Seemi” (pronounced “See me”!?!) HA! I am a genius and didn’t even know it!).
Anyway, Seemi hung around for awhile, but as the case with most imaginary friends, was eventually replaced by real friends… friends with legs and arms generally much less slime.
But when I grew older, something really awesome happened – imaginary friends came back! These friends, however, didn’t live in my imagination as much as they lived in my computer. They made comments on my blog. “Liked” me on Facebook. Followed me on Twitter. They connected with me via The VW Camper Family. We learned about each others lives and bonded over our common interests – all through the magic of social media.
And then one day… these friends went from living in my computer, to living in REAL LIFE (and driving buses to boot)! It happened on a sunny SoCal Sunday in January…
And one more photo for good measure… cuz there’s nothing cuter than VW buses and kids with ‘staches, no? (Plus, check out the photo over Bustache’s left shoulder… pretty awesome coincidence, huh!)
We are very much looking forward to hanging out with our new real-life friends again soon. Camp-outs? Shows? Cruisin’? The possibility are endless.
