A rose by any other name...

I have a huge decision to make. I now know how Millie feels. She doesn't know what to name her child. I don't know what to name my car.

Last spring I got a green 2000 Volkswagen New Beetle. Yesterday I read on a FAQ that you can call Volkswagen and get a birth certificate for your baby bug. It lists the vehicle production date, model, color, port of entry, engine number and the best part, weight and length.

So this morning I call the Volkwagen Customer Service, and the nice lady is asking me questions, "What color is it? What is your first name? What is the car's name?" What is the cars name? Uh oh. I am a bad bug owner. How could I have not named my baby?

I panic. "Joel! I need a name!"... "Jinx!" "...Uhhh, Millie? Name?"... "Diego! Ricky Martin!"

"Can I call you back?" I ask the VW lady.

Got a good name? Tell me.
