Random Thoughts of What Is On My Mind

I realized while selling my Honda, that I alway refer to my car as a "She" and that I have given all my cars nickname.

Is that weird?

My first car was a maroon 1987 Toyota Tercel. It looked and ran like a piece of shit. So of course I called it "The Turd!"

My second car was also maroon (and I will never own a maroon car again), but it was a Dodge Shadow. I liked this car alot, but unfortunately, this is also the only car I have ever wrecked. Because it was maroon, it became known as the "The Turd Too!"

My third car was a white Chevy Lumina! It was huge and handled like a boat in the city. It was great for highway travel. Being a large white car, and me being a Hunter S Thompson fan, the car became known as "The Great White Whale!"

My last car was the black Honda Civic that I have been driving for the last 9 years. I don't know exactly how the name "The Skate" came about.I was small and I guess one day I thought it looked like a rollerskate.

So that brings me to the question of what to call the new car. Its silver/gray subaru legacy 4 door. It's nice. My first thought was "The Silver Bullet". But that seems cliche. I guess it will come to me in time!

What about just 'Bullet'? No 'the.'
C and I went to high school with a guy named Bullet.
