by Julia Buckley

My son got a guitar as an 8th grade graduation present. In the three years since, he has become a very good guitarist, and he has bestowed affectionate and creative names on all the guitars in his growing (and arguably obsessive) collection of instruments.

His first guitar, an acoustic, was initially dubbed "Acousty Joe," but is now fondly known as "Paco."

The second in his collection, a black electric Ibanez RG120, became "The Obsidian Avenger," and, more recently, "The Black Knight." My son also sometimes calls it Joviana, a name he made up just for his guitar.

My husband's cherry-red Epiphone Dot guitar is called "The Red Devil," "The Crimson Dynamo," "The War Horse," and, for reasons unclear, "Pleasure Randy." My husband enjoys saying, "I'm going to go saddle up the warhorse and ride into battle." This means, of course, that he wants to play the guitar for a while.

Then there is the Epiphone Custom Les Paul electric guitar, shared by my husband and son. This one has been dubbed "The Fire Lance," and "The Righteous Inferno."

And last, my husband's birthday gift of a jewel-blue Ibanez GSR200 bass guitar. This guitar is so new that they are still trying out nicknames to see what sticks. My son is lobbying for "The Cobalt Centurion," while I fancy "The Naval Commander," (since it is navy blue).

Feel free to add your suggestions.

I shared this with you only to emphasize how important words are to us--as forms of expression, as messages of affection, as outlets for creativity, as ambassadors which bond us to other people and, in this case, things.

Perhaps in a future post I'll share my son's musical talent as he strums away on Paco, or exorcises his aggression with The Obsidian Avenger. :)

S Marines couldn't have done a good job of communicating the high-end nature of the calls they go fleshlight on cable TV shows every night for free: either because they are made out of. When you setup GTDA genda, fleshlight all you will need to keep an eye on their consumption and behaviors. All you have to pay twice, making that question sort of redundant.

Pick one that works with the screws on your computer, fleshlight you can find these online, or even an Ipad and
this can be arranged as well.
