Have you ever wondered why people give names to inanimate objects?
I overheard a lady this week talking about her van. She called it the "White Goose". She said when it had to be worked on she felt very sad for it and missed it dearly. My first thought was,  "OK. ... that's weird.", but my next thought was, "Wait a minute, what about my RV named "Maybelle" and the guitars I call "George" and "Doc" and the mandolin named Hazel, Hazel Dickens to be exact. Then there was Godzilla, and Bluebelle and ... "Well", I say, sort of smug to Hazel, "At least I only give them names,  at least "I" don't personify things that aren't real."
She didn't answer.
Have a good rest of the week!!!


  1. I love this! My husband, Bill is a guitarist. And everyone knows B.B.King's Lucille!

  2. LOL! I've always given names to my cars i.e. Bertha, Sara Lee etc.
