The story of the girl and the dirty socks – Great Imagination or is it Lying?

The other day my lovely wife Kim found dirty socks on top of the girl’s cupboard. When she asked the girls how this happened, Anna, our youngest came up with a very imaginative story. She is 8 years old.

Have a read below of her story and tell us what do you think…

  • Does this show great imagination?
  • Or is it lying?
  • Or a bit of both?


The story of the girl and the dirty socks

by Anna ovari

Once there lived a tiny and I mean a really, really tiny girl. One night she was running in a bedroom. She looked around it was too dark to see. But suddenly something started glow. It was a huge ladder that lead up to the top of the closet. Suddenly she heard something big so she quickly burst up the ladder. At last she was up the top. She was tired. So without another word she fell asleep. In the morning she set of again but she slipped and fell. “MY DUMB SOCKS” She yelled. She took of her socks and forgot something oh-oh she said. Her socks turned huge (well to her ,to us it would be a normal size ). She quickly burst down the ladder. She ran down the floor really fast. She meet a dog. That dog had 3 colors (brown, black and a little bit of white). She rode that dog outside. There in front of her was her home. Three happy facers looking at her. At last she was home, but her dirty sock weren’t.

And that’s how the dirty socks got on top of the closet 

Thanks for reading!!!

  1. Delightful. I love listening to my grandson who loves Thomas the Train and Friends make up his own stories. I’ve written down what he says at least once as a gift to his mother…He isn’t yet 3. But I have a story for you. It was a creative writing prompt. Please enjoy:

    Continued happiness to you and yours. Cheers.

  2. Well you have to give her credit for quick and creative thinking. I bet she knew she was on to a winner!

  3. I vote great imagination! She definitely has he makings of a great author!LOL

  4. A beautiful story and symbolic I think. The little girl in the story got into a difficult spot, got herself out of it and was welcomed home by her family. I love it and can’t wait to read the books she writes when she grows up.

  5. Was Hans Christian Anderson lying? Mother Goose?

  6. It is as real as a falling tree in a forest making a sound..

  7. Let’s vote in favour of Imagination. 🙂

    Excellent story-telling skills too.

  8. I like it….its better than…not me, or as my girls say “she did it!” pointing at each other. 🙂

  9. its all real. children havent had the faery sight squeezed out of them by culture yet. o_0

  10. What a wonderful imagination your daughter has Attila. How easy it would have been for her to say, “yeah, the dirty socks are at the top of the closet.” Her choice to create this most delightful story is very telling. She is clearly a happy child who has wonderful parents.

  11. I suppose, if you really wanted to characterize this tale as “a lie” you could, although I think it probably falls into the category of a “deflection”, to use politico-speak term. In any case, I find it charming and more than a little imaginative. . .You and your wife have spawned a truly creative little girl, , ,and a great storyteller!

    • Yes, I would have to agree with you…. We all know who owns the socks (Not the tiny girl)…. However the story certainly made us smile…. as we still ensured that she cleaned up her room

  12. You’ve got an up and coming author on your hands. I want chapter two about the tiny girl’s home.

  13. That sounds like the “Not Me” child who was my third child that grew up with my two daughters. The “Not Me” Child was always doing bazaar things which neither of my daughters would admit to…at least yours had a semi logical explanation lol

  14. Hahaha what a cute story…or perhaps a very creative lie!

  15. Wonderful story, children are great story tellers!

  16. Inspired imagination … love it.
