Names and Things

I was walking through the Arboretum with Gloria on Saturday night and I saw some lettering in the black window of a Ford Explorer. "My Will and Desire II," it read.

"Do you see that?" I asked Gloria. "My Will and Desire II?"

"What in the world?" she asked.

"This is what troubles me," I said. "I believe he's implying that this vehicle is a sequel. Apparently, there was an original Will and Desire."

"That seems logical," she said.

People are naming their cars now? Why do people name things, anyway? Like boats. If I had a boat, I'd call it "Boat." I wouldn't name it All For Knot or The Sail Also Rises or Aunt Marjorie's Knickers.

And would a boat with a name get mail? Could you get a Mastercard made out to I Stole His Wife II?
