when he catches me arguing with the dog

As a child I had an invisible friend. Well no one else saw him but I did. I quickly stopped trying to get anyone else to acknowledge him. I thought he was the guy on the Quaker Oats box. I would tell him about what we were studying in school. He laughed a lot but not in an offensive way. I talked to him all the way through my PhD about technology and science. At some point I decided he was really Ben Franklin. He made me question a lot of the stuff I was taught - rightly so more often than not. Don't know how many times a little research on my part revealed errors in High school science teachers and even college professors unfounded statements.
To this day on long late night drives i find myself discussing latest science theories with Ben. He likes the eleven dimensional universe of string theory so it is probably worth pursuing (;-)>
