    A student asked me what my driver’s ed car (2010 Ford Fusion) was named. When I told her it didn’t have a name, she was flabbergasted, and insisted that I name it, while she was still doing her driving lesson.
    “How about Fred?”
    “No, that just doesn’t do anything for me” she replied.
    I thought of Fitzgerald, but knew that was too much of a mouthful. Then it hit me.
    “Floyd?”
    “Yes! It’s perfect!!”
    So, now I drive Floyd the Ford Fusion. And no, I will not be painting it pink.
