    I never played Star Trek (I was too busy playing war with my Barbies and Luke Skywalker doll), but when I was four or five I wrote a letter to Mr. Spock asking him to marry me.

        I’m pretty sure my parents didn’t actually mail it, alas.

        My Luke Skywalker doll took the place of Ken (and was much cooler). I had Princess Leia as well, but of course the first thing I did was take her hair down out of those stupid rolls (and then could never get them back, lol).

    I was doing the rescuing. 🙂 My imaginary friend was R2-D2 and I had a lightsaber. Maybe that’s why I have lightsabers now and do lightsaber choreography. hehehe.

      I think we played Star Wars a few times, but neither of us had lightsabers- back then 🙂

        lol, I assure you I didn’t have lightsabers “back then”. It was all imaginary. Kids these days have more toys!

    I love this! Especially since I fondly call my husband “Spock” because he’s SO logical. However, as a child, I imagined a made-up prince who did not rescue me exactly; he either fought the villains WITH me or showed up right after I had vanquished the enemy, just in time to whisk me away on his horse to the castle and live happily ever after.

      LOL- I love that he fought with you- or came after you had taken care of business!

    I didn’t need rescuing when I was a kid. I remember playing “war” with a couple of boys when one told me I was the nurse. Now nothing against nur
    ses, but it’s not me at all. I told him “No way! I’m a soldier!” When I did imaginary play I was fighting alongside the hero–me and Luke Skywalker! Or else *I* was the one rescuing the girl. 🙂
