Linda’s #SoCS prompt for today…
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “moo.” Base your post on the word “moo” or a word that rhymes with it. Bonus points if you actually use the word “moo” in your post. Have fun!
Do you give names to your cars?
I have a habit of giving inanimate objects names, and my cars have never escaped. From my first brum brum, Bink, to Vikky. Bebe to my newest, Lippy, or Timmy, depending on my mood. Usually the name has come from the registration plate and the letters have conjured up a suitable moniker for the vehicle.
But one was named for a different reason. After being involved in a multi car pile up, and coming out unscathed, thank God, Hubby Dearest wrote off my Ford Focus Saloon, Vikky. (reg. had VKK in it, hence the name!) I was stuck. About to start back to work after my year of maternity leave ended, I needed a car to get about.
Finances were a little tight, and at around the same time my brother had gone gallivanting around the world, (Dubai!) for a then undisclosed amount of time. His car sat at home and wasn’t being used so my Pops said we could have it. ( It had been bought by my Pops and mum for my brother as a first car, Pops wasn’t giving away something that wasn’t his!)
So this was how I came to have my third car.
What to call it?
I turned to the kids and the end result was Daisy.
Why? Nothing do to with the registration plate this time.
Apparently when the central locking button was pressed on the remote, the mechanism made this slow noise, rather like a “Moooooo!” Lil Man thought it sounded like a cow and so Daisy was christened!
