No new names

by | Aug 15, 2014 | daily prompt

Have you ever named an inanimate object? (Your car? Your laptop? The volleyball that kept you company while you were stranded in the ocean?) Share the story of at least one object with which you’re on a first-name basis.

Never that I remember. Maybe when I was a child I named my toys but I had not an  interesting story to share that I recall. I like to call thinks by their proper name. Maybe is a lack of imagination, maybe I’m not so attached to my things, maybe I don’t feel the need to personalize  an inanimate thing. My computer is my Mac because is a Mac; my car was my car… Only my firsts ones had names ” the 127″ and “the Panda” but those were the names given by the manufacturers. I’ve never been stranded in the ocean to begin to talk to objects. I only talk to the phone.


The Name’s The Thing.
