A Christmas Story has been elevated to a cult classic at our house. We’ve watched it for years and look forward to the 24 hour marathon on TV. My husband and daughter will quote the movie all year and the similarities to a few of our family members, ahem, is a bit uncanny. She may kill me later, however to illustrate my point, I’ll go there anyway. When our daughter was a preschooler, she not only had invisible friends, she had invisible siblings. Scott Farcus and Little Toady were her “bruvers.” It didn’t do any good to tell her that the villians were “Scutt” Farcus, not Scott Farcus and that “Little Toady” actually had a name. They were her brothers and that was that. Period. So we played along, clicking them into their car seats before we left the drive way.
