You Name It
I sure have a strange family. We name everything. Our van. Felicity's Escape. Noises in our house. You name it - we name it. *winks*
For the longest time we've had "The Chainsaw Man" living with us. He makes all those strange noises at night, and it's his wolves and lions that make all those things go missing randomly. Me and LaKaysha used to tell our little sister all about The Chainsaw Man. We told her that the only reason he doesn't cut her up with his chainsaw was that we were friends with him and we told him not to. A strange thing to tell your little sister, I know. But she knew we were just telling stories. But one time my little cousin believed us! Yeah... after that I made sure people knew that a Chainsaw Man didn't really live in our attic. *winks*
He lived up there with his wolves that swim in our pool while we're not home and his lions that like to watch "The Sound of Music". (We made that up when that movie went missing for the longest time. and when we found it in the wrong case we said that they were done with it and gave it back *winks*)
My aunts stayed at our house while we were away once, and they named the Chainsaw Man "Abner". Why? I don't know.
Not just noises get named around here.
My cousin bought a new car.
"Tyrel! Can we name it?"
"Okay! It's Precious!"
Why we named it something so odd, I have no idea. We were interesting people... okay. We are interesting people.
We were riding in another cousin's pickup and I asked him what he named it.
"Old Reliable." So, from that day on, it was "Old Reliable" to my diary. (Yes, I wrote about Colten's pickup... still do, actually.) And then he sold him to his younger brother.
The van we drive is "Dicky". Anyone who's watched the original "Little Rascals" should know the quote, "Step on it, Dicky." And that's where that name came from.
My dad's old pickup was named "Waylon" after Waylon Jennings. So when we got the Escape that Felicity drives, we named it "Willie" after Willie Nelson.
Once upon a time my camera was named "Davy" and it's case was "Fred".
Fred always "ate" poor Davy. *winks* For real. People would swing my purse around and I'd be like, "Don't!! You're gonna hurt Davy!!"
Marita's car is named "Jetson". She got it the year it was made and it was so "fancy"- almost future like, so it got named after "The Jetson's"
Marissa's car is named "Perry Como". She picked that name. *winks*
*gasp* My dad's new pickup doesn't have a name!! We'll have to see to that...
At one point we sat around and chose names for our future cars. I was going to name mine "Ricky Nelson", but then I changed it to "Patti Ann". I wonder if I'll really ever use it?
Marita used to have a car named "Jesse James Garfield" (we called it James) and it blew up. (no joke)
All flies are named "Gerald". but Marissa and Marita call them "Tony".
My great-aunt and uncle had an old pickup that was named "Mater"... then they sold him. *sniff*
Oh! We were visiting my cousin one time and we went to the park. There were squirrels everywhere and we named one "Nelson".
And before "Willie" came along, there was "Norman" - little car that was a weird teal color. He gave up the ghost one day at the gas station and it was goodbye Norman. He smelled funny anyway. *winks*
It seems like we've named more things than that... whatever. *winks*
Another, random, just-for-fun post, and I hope I didn't bore you.
Have a very Merry Christmas!
