So as I was bloghopping today, I read Carrie's post and Burgh Baby's post...and they were both about GPS systems. That is not odd. What struck me was the comment section. It was then I realized that a number of us seem to have named our GPSs.
We have Lucy, a Garmin Nuvi something-or-other. Lucy received her name because she is a bit like Lucy Van Pelt...bossy, smart, and LOVES to tell others what to do. Lucy is amazingly talented. She speaks fluent Arabic and Cantonese. She says she can speak other languages fluently but I've yet to hear them. When she speaks Arabic, I feel as though she is yelling at me, so we don't do that often. It doesn't help that I don't understand a word of Arabic! I just thought it'd be cool. Not so much. Lucy speaks with a British accent a good deal of the time, but I noticed when she speaks British English, it is softer than American English...just an observation! Lucy is passive aggressive, too. I've noticed when I don't do exactly as she says when she first recommends it, she will sometimes wait until the last minute to remind me. Bitch. For the most part, we get along well. She has helped me out of some tight spots and I have treated her well in return.
So...tell me about YOUR little friend and how well you get along!
