I have a car.
Many people have names for their car. When I was a kid we called my parent’s green Nova “climby;” I think this name was perhaps more of an encouragement to the car for those times when the car would have to climb a hill. Why we give a name to non-living thing I will never know.
But then, I too have a name for my car.
I call my car: Free Car. Maybe this is more of a description or explanation than a name. I call the car “free car” because the car was given to me when my former vehicle went kaput. I totally appreciate the gift that this car is. My understanding is that I am the 3rd free owner of this specific car.
All of that to say, lately I have been listening to Flogging Molly while driving to and fro in Free Car….
