"The Pretend Person" - is that an uncredited Himan Brown as the boss calling her on the phone? Sure sounds like him!

A woman who has open heart surgery has an imaginary friends that help her deal with the various crises in her life as she recovers.

A great example of how these stories can uncover some of the hidden sadness in the human experience, and then turn it around to end hopeful. Wonderful!

I love the conversation with her husband. Especially her line "Is her thermostat in good working order?".

This is a bitter sweet story. Glad it ended as it did as we don't all get second chances
