Daily Prompt: The Name’s The Thing

Today’s Daily Prompt: The Name’s The Thing

“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 don’t normally have enough to say to participate in the daily prompts, but this one got my attention. I quickly asked Sarah the question, and she doesn’t name objects, and i could only think of 2 objects that has a name:

1, Big Bertha!

This is what i call my Nikkor 80-400mm zoom lens, especially when i have to carry it around and wish i just had my iPhone!! 🙂 I can’t ever remember calling it anything else!

2, Toni

This is what i’ve always called my 1995 Taylor GAWS (Grand Auditorium Walnut Spruce)acoustic guitar, because the tone this thing produces is just fantastic! I remember 6 years ago when my guitar teacher and i went to buy my first pro spec acoustic guitar. As soon as i played & heard it among all of the others, it was mine! 🙂

  1. I’m glad you did participate, your photos are great. The name of your blog is pretty cool, too.

    • Wow, thanks for all of the encouragement!! 🙂
      I wanted a non denominational name which would also work as a online interactive name, and i use the little i also as a symbol of how we have to be small to allow more of God! Hope i’ve captured some of this?! 🙂

  2. I drive a 20 year old mercedes car and I simply call her mercedes, I say come on mercedes, lets get going!
