Abbie: Sherman (her imaginary pet) is hurt.
Me: What happened to him?
Abbie: Sherman is falling down. He's crying.
Me: Go pick him up and make him feel better.
(Abbie runs off)
Abbie: Sherman is hurt.
Me: I'm sorry. Did you give him a kiss?
Abbie: Yes, he needs a bandaid.
Me: Imaginary pets do not get bandaids!
Abbie: Sherman does!
Me: (Inspecting imaginary worm) No Blood, No Bandaid! Sherman is fine.
