Goofy Thoughts

null Don’t ask me why but, for some reason, the phrase “just a figment of your imagination” popped into my head last night on my way to sleep. I know it’s a pretty common saying but all I could think about was…just what is a figment and why is it that it is only in your imagination? I’ve never heard the term used any other way. What’s up with that??? Can a figment exist any where else? Can you throw it at someone during an argument…like…”You figment you”…or maybe…”You are such a figment”.

Just a goofy thought.

    I think I’m going to try to incorporate this word into conversations at least once a day. Want to join me?
