What's in a Name


Mags: "Imagine if you fell off the boat. I'd just swim to that red thing over there."
Me: "The buoy?"
Mags: "No. The floating red thing. See it?"
Me: "Yep. It's called a buoy."
Mags: "No. The red thing. It has the white number on it."
Me: "Yes. I know. It's called a BOO-EE."
Mags: "That's a silly name."
Me: "Well, what do YOU think is a good name for it?"
Mags: "The Floating Red Thing."

    1. Exactly. I thought the same thing. And I always thing the u and o are backwards.

  2. There's something to be said for a straightforward name...

  4. She calls them like she sees them. Trust me when I say ... that is usually a good thing. USUALLY.
