My imaginary friends.

Colin and Sally are my imaginary friends, telling us about their daily lives in the real world.

Age? I think they said they are in the 5th grade, but it might be the 4th or 6th. They are twins.

Because of new bureaucratic red tape from the US government, Google can't let me make accounts for them. So they'll be posting from my account.

Start here.

Jumping into the pool with our clothes on!

July 12th, Friday

Today was a surprise!
Well, they told us before, so it was not a total surprise.
We practiced swimming in our clothes.
It's for emergencies.
We practiced inflating our school uniforms for floating.
It didn't work very well.
-- Sally

Street clothes are heavy when they are wet.
They drag you down.
And it's hard to move in them, too.
So we couldn't swim a lot.
I wanted to swim more.
-- Colin
