Did you ever use to play that game as a child where you pretended your floor was lava and had to jump from sofa to sofa to avoid it?
Pretending use to be about creating games and adventures that kept me occupied all throughout my childhood. I used my imagination to create a whole world of my own to explore and be adventurous. I didn’t worry about much else because there simply wasn’t any need to at the time.
Nowadays, the meaning of pretend has changed. We may pretend we are not sad, nervous or scared, even if we are. We might also pretend we are confident and ready to conquer anything, even if are not. Pretending isn’t as fun as it use to be.
I sure miss being a kid.
