Wheelie - The wonderful thing about English is that most words have multiple meanings. You and darkautumn are both right. Remember the scene in Alice in Wonderland (the book)...

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

darkautumn Cooties is the plural informal term for lice, nothing imaginary about them.

I'd hang this on the wall in my office. If I still had an office.

Frodik, "Cooties" are imaginary germs, bugs or disease. Its a silly thing that children between 5 and 11 torture each other with. If a boy touches a girl on the playground, you got boy cooties and must immunized by a pack of girls. Its the same for boys. Once when I was about 8, a boy touched me and I couldn't get ANYONE to give me a cootie shot. I had to have boy cooties all day and I went home crying to my mom. I got back at him though. I knocked him down and stole one of his shoes. I didn't get cooties from touching him that time because I had my magic force field up.
