An Imaginary Friend
Imagine how lonely you would be to need an imaginary friend on into adulthood. Now, try to understand how lonely one must be to be willing to spend money to purchase another person’s imaginary friend. It sounds like some kooky scenario for a really cheesy movie, but what we’re dealing with is real life. In instances dating back as early as 2007, people have turned to eBay to sell their invisible companions for exorbitant amounts of money. Granted, any amount of money is a lot for a ghostly buddy, but we’re talking final bids in the thousands. One individual is said to have successfully pawned off their childhood friend for over $2,500.
