The Name’s The Thing

Hey blog world! Today’s daily post (which youl can find here) is “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.

A lot of musicians have named their guitars. Willie Nelson has Trigger, Hank Williams Jr. has Bocephus etc. I wanted to give mine a name too. This took a lot of thinking. One day in French class we listened to the song “Layla” by Eric Clapton. The next day as I continued to think of a name for my guitar I thought back to the day before and thought of how nice a name Layla was. I looked at my guitar and actually thought it kind of looked like a Layla! I thought the name suited it so I went with it!

Have you named an inanimate object that you own? Tell me in the comments!
