One of the quirks I have always loved about Sloane is the way that she names absolutely everything. She has named the preying mantis she discovered and kept for a day (Amen), her grandparents' car (Bob), even the regular route we drive (Home, James). I find that adorable. So it was pretty funny when I realized that it was a habit that came directly from me. I name things, too. I almost always name the things that I use regularly.
Since I was 15 and got my first car, I have named every one of them. As to the car I drive now, it took me years to discover his real name. It's Bic. You know? As in Bic pens. They sure aren't fancy. They aren't gel pens and they don't write in great colored ink, but they get the job done. Dependably and reliably. Every time. Yup. He may not be fun, but he's dependable. He's Bic.
