Well, once again we turn to our faithful blog readers for help. We recently sold our little red car and got ourselves a vehicle with a little more room. I have decided she needs a name – we can’t just call it ‘the truck’ ’cause there are a lot of black trucks around and it would be confusing.
(Trust me – she must have a name – my family has always named inanimate objects and appliances and vehicles – don’t look at me weird – it’s very helpful! Like when you have two wood stoves in the house – you name them so you can know which one you’re talking about when the stove needs feeding – “Albert need’s wood!” or “Please feed Emma!”)
So, she is a black suburban and I want a fun black-person name for her – you know, like Mofika, or Sasha – or something like that. If you have suggestions – even if it’s not an authentic African-American sounding name, please post it in a comment and help us out!
And, for those who want a little more info on our new vehicle – um, it’s black, and it’s a suburban – that’s all I can give you – you know this is not my strong point – I don’t know model or make or milage or the kind of engine. 🙂 Like our last vehicle, it’s one that’s been rebuilt after being totalled in an accident. When I first saw it in the shop it was completely gutted and had no front end! It’s all fixed now and we really like it.
