It's funny the imagination we have as kids, don't you think? We seem to be able to visualise impossible, unlikely, or even contradictory scenarios in the 'ideas factory' of our minds. Our brains don't have much (if any) difficulty in running along two different trains of thought at the same time, even if reason and common sense dictate that those 'trains' shouldn't be able to run on tracks so closely parallel to one another without risking a collision when they reach the junction (metaphorically speaking). No, it's not a perfect analogy, but you know what I mean.
But before I go, let me ask you Crivs a question that I've asked before, but I'll ask again for the benefit of any new readers (though older ones can answer it again if they want to). Is there a particular toy from your childhood that you'd love to own again, and what specific memories does it conjure up in your mind? The comments section is ravenous, so please feed it as much as you like.
