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’ve never been one of these people. Most people that I know have given a name to something has been a car or something like a laptop.

When I was in my final years of high school, my girlfriend had a guitar which she named Polly, and it was one of those names that just stuck from that moment on. If we ever went somewhere together, she’d say she’s bringing Polly, and I’d just smile and others would wonder who this Polly chick was and why they hadn’t met her before.

Another couple of friends gave their cars names, but other than that, we weren’t too big on the whole ‘naming objects’ phase.
