Naming My Stuff

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.

Subtle Castaway reference in the prompt eh? I guess a lot of us do that you know, name inanimate objects. Reminds me of Chandler Bing & Joey calling the recliner “Rosita” and “Stevie” the tv! Hahaha, well I do that too at times.

Starting with ofcourse as a small child I had Teddy my teddy bear. That is a common name I know! But then I stopped referring to inanimate things until I was 12 and got a tennis racket who I secretly called “Mac” (like John McEnroe?) when I played some wall tennis for a couple of years.

Fast forward to age 19 and I got my first pc a computer I named “Sabrina”. I dunno why but electronic goods like computers and phones are female to me! My next computer was a desktop in 2006 who I named “Sandrine”. My BlackBerry Curve was named “Cindy”. This laptop that I bought back in 2010 is named “Samantha”! My BlackBerry Bold that I currently have is named “Melissa”.

If I do get more stuff you can be sure that I will give them names.
