Slice of Life
Sarah has renamed my kindle, it used to be ‘Woof!’, but now he will always be known as Herbet.
I took Herbet to the gym, and repeatedly had to say ‘I can’t leave Herbet alone!” to my gym buddy. My amazon account now has the option of ‘send to Herbert’ for every ebook I browse. Some of my English class friends were dumping on ereaders and I picked up Herbert and yelled ‘Don’t hurt Herbert’s feelings! He is a real book, just with more to love..’.
So now when I think of my kindle, I think of a tubby, dapper old man who lugs all my books around for me and wears an old beat up leather jacket. Named Herbert.
Sorry, Herbert’s name just makes me irrationally happy.
