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.
I can imagine myself naming my car when I get one. I always used to think that cars looked like people, the way their headlights are shaped and so on. It’s kind of like when dogs look like their owners. I’d have to give my car an unusual, yet endearing name. Something like Nelly.
At the moment, I don’t think I have an inanimate object which I’m on a first-name basis-which is kind of sad, really. When I first got my iPhone, I think I named it. But it didn’t stick for very long, especially since I can’t remember it today!
