Hehe. I had a similar thing going. I had an imaginary rope or knife
or axe or something with which I had to cut down every single lamp
on the side of the road. Very often (at least here in Sweden) there
are these b/w poles on the roadside. And every time I tried to cut
them down my imaginary sword would just slide off the poles. Every
single time. You can imagine the frustration. You can probably
generalize this to my everyday life back then. Today, I have no
problems with imagining to cut down road poles. :)

I didn't until recently, although now I'm very open about conlanging
and this list, and everyone seems to think it's cool. Phew. I'm
really looking forward to showing my friend's my new cool conlang
t-shirt! Yay! :)
