A good story always needs a grounding in reality. But then what about fantasy, or very advanced Sci-Fi? Suspension of disbelief can be a bit more of a stretch.
I think an active imagination is a teriffic stress relief. Taking things to an illogical or unreal conclusion is still a valid exploration, in my view. Just look how popular I Dream Of Jeannie is. (One of my favourite shows.) Or is it that we all just like looking at Barbra Eden in chifon pantaloons? Another brilliant theory shot down by an ugly fact!
