Two weeks ago my hubby’s car was totaled. He was, is fine. So no worries! We were down to one car and you know what? I felt relieved. Crazy right? It was an introvert’s dream. Ha! BUT after two weeks of walking to get my son from school. In Texas. On the cusp of summer. With no sidewalks. I am thankful for my new wheels!
If you are following me on Instagram, you would have already seen this beauty. But if you haven’t, here she is!
My hubby will be driving my old car, Gizmo. I named it after one of my cats I had as a teen. AND guess what? The owl who played Hedwig in the Harry Potter movies was named Gizmo! Perfect, right? (It was also a white car. And the car before that. What’s the deal with white cars? BUT for the record this one’s more…pearly….ecru color. ;-P )
So now I need to find an epic name for my new ride.
My son wanted to call her Nugget. No.
Then he said Bucky (Short for buccaneer from Jake & the Neverland Pirates) If it was brown….maybe.
My daughter wanted to call her Sally. Um…No.
Then she suggested Poop. WHAT?! She got a giggle out of THAT. Yeah, no.
I suggested Hedwig. Moony. Luna. But my kiddos want to put Mrs. in front of the names. Not sure why… Mrs. Moony sounds cool, but might give some interesting connotations, no? But only if one was familiar with the Harry Potter world…
Of course, they didn’t like my suggestion of Shadowfax. And they said it had to be a girl’s name. Oookay. So no Fenwick. Ha!
So what do you think we should name our car?
Hope you all are having a great week!
