Daily Prompt – The name’s the thing

Daily Prompt:

Have you ever named an inanimate object? (Your car? Your laptop? The volleyball that kept you company while you were stranded in the ocean?) Share the story of at least one object with which you’re on a first-name basis.

I never give actual names to objects, but my laptop is my baby. I adopted her on the 13th November 2012, and though she has undergone surgery on two occasions we have been together almost constantly since. We’ve shared a lot of good times together, and she is the reason I got through my degree. People criticised her for being small, having Windows 8 and being touch screen, but I love her all the same. 

I’m not sure what I will do the day she finally leaves me.

  1. Ah nice 🙂 Windows 8 is not that bad once you get used to it. I too had many preconceived ideas that it would be terrible but I actually like it on my laptop. I’m with you!

    • I know right! Only thing I don’t like is that its too intelligent, so when some websites are optimised for touch, it makes everything very difficult when I hook it up to the TV to watch iPlayer! Love my Windows 8 🙂

      • I see. My laptop isn’t touch so thankfully I haven’t had that issue. I still like it quite a lot 🙂
