I suddenly remembered long ago, when I was still a little child I used to have an imaginary friend called Jeff. I imagined him as a person whom looked like the alien, "grey man" (pale grey skin, big eyes, oval shaped head, small body, long fingers and very intelligent).
I would talk to Jeff whenever I feel unhappy (things like, when I cannot have any cookies from the cookie jar, I have to finish my milk when I do not want to, etc lol). I remember I will talk to a robot figure representing Jeff and say, "Jeff Jeffedy Jeff, veja isso? Os adultos são sempre assim! Eles nunca pensam em meu sentimento, já que ainda sou pequeno!" (Jeff Jeffedy Jeff, see that? Adults are always like that! They never think of my feeling since I am still small!). I will then make the already very loose head nod so to make myself think that Jeff agreed. LOL
When my grandmother started to visit us frequently, my memories with Jeff had thinned, well, age did matter too I guess, but I never had completely forgotten Jeff even though the broken robot figure is thrown away. I still would "talk" to Jeff, when I was alone, before my mother got pregnant.
I remember once my cousin visited me and we had a big fight I was alone sitting on the edge of the dark corridor of our old home crying. I guess it was my imagination, Jeff came to me in my thoughts, he was asking why I am crying, I told him that I had a fight with my cousin and that he was being mean and things like that. I told me not to worry since in the future he is going to suffer in his own love life.
Years past, I had forgotten about that moment me and my cousin fought, I even cannot remember what the fight was about. Of course my sister would not even know that things like that had happened, she not even born! I heard about my cousin, he is now working in a local hotel as a manager. He had got married and divorced several times just in a few years. Rumors were around, my cousin became a "Play-Boy" who would cheat on any woman he is with, every time he was caught on bed with other woman, and he was once caught by a detective sent by one of his ex-wife.
I do not understand why he would behave that way, the more I think my long lost imaginary friend would pop-up and say "eu te disse" (I told you so).
I do not know if that was my sixth sense sending "Jeff" to tell me a shameful prediction on my cousin but I have heard that during childhood, many of us would have this long lost abilities which we human beings all have. Do you think that this could have been my sixth sense or something? I do not have it now and I never would talk to "Jeff" since I no longer need him in my life (I mean, imaginary friend... Come on!).
Do you all have had an imaginary friend whom sometimes really scare you or have special abilities? If so do share it and let me know if you think it is some kind of spirit or not.
