Imaginary Friend

So I Have This Friend: Give your best advice to this friend.
So I have this friend... Growing up, she didn't have many friends nearby so she used her imagination to create friends. She's now thirty and recently confided in me that she still talks to her imaginary friends. Is this normal? What should I tell her?

P.S. Merry Christmas to my friends out there who are celebrating today!

Winner Time! 01/02/10
Listen, I've been meaning to talk to you about your imaginary friend for quite some time now. At first I thought it was harmless and that it would pass. Until now.

This has become a much more serious issue and I'm afraid it must be dealt with. How serious? It interrupts my work day. It interferes with my meals. It keeps me awake at night. It even gets in the way of "intimate moments".

You see, now your friend is talking to me!
Winner: Hank
Reason: If the imaginary friend is now talking to others, it's beyond time to take action.

Tell her, "Crazy--yes, crazy--you just might be.
Go to a therapist, paid for by me."
(But don't worry a bit
About the cost of it--
He's an imaginary therapist--he's free.)

Introduce her imaginary friend to mine. (I'd have to make one up, but it's ok. I can pretend)

Tell her our imaginary friends have started seeing each other.

Give it 6 months, and tell her that they eloped to Alaska together to start a new life.

Even her imaginary friends are bored of her. They told me...
