Not So Nifty Names

So as I was walking along (YES, I was actually walking along a road. Deal with it), I started to think what it would be like if names of people would be conjunctions, prepositions or similarly common words. Apart from the imminent demise of society and the end of civilization as we know it, it would reference people all the time. There would be a lot of “Huh?”s, “Yes?”s and “Did you call?”s. And what if someone was actually called Huh or Yes?

Okay, now you're just effing with me.

Anyway, so instead of pursuing that thought further, I decided to see what names would fit some of my friends. So, for the first time in this blog, I will be using real names. Do not troll these people, or I will punch you in the throat.

Right there.

I HAVE to start with Somdatta now. It seems the compulsion. 😛
And the word I pick for her is (drumroll please)…

Sit.

I did say common words. Now if she was called sit, I could never discuss so many things with her – Sitting in the shade of a sycamore tree, sitting in class, dog tricks, Inu Yasha and so many more things. :/ And if I called her sit, she’d probably call me something like vat. Now I know that I’m very exhausting and taxing on your soul, but that’s a bit too much, don’t you think?

Like that. :I

Moving on,

I thought about 2 more people – Amala and Srishma, and both of them are very inactive on Facebook (non-existent even), so no trolling. Ha ha!

Amala I named ‘and’ for some reason, and it was really fun trolling her through SMS today with simple “And?”s and “And what?”s. 😀 And seems to suit her as a name because she manages to shut me up and all I find myself able to say often is “And?”. And if we all called Amala ‘and’, then Srishma would never be able to talk at all, because the poor girl speaks fast, nervously AND continuously. 😛

Coming to Srishma, I thought I’d name her ‘is’, and my brain was making connections like “I is thin, like Srishma.” and (AND) “Is IS a small word, like Srishma is tiny.” AND “S for Srishma.” and what not.

And thus ends an exercise in futility which started well and ended up disappointing  described the three people I talk to the most nowadays. I love all three in all different ways, and to make up for not enough comic material in this piece, I’d like to start a ripped-off game tradition. I ask a question and if you like, you can leave an answer in the comments.

So the question this time is “What common-word-name would you give me, and what word do you think would suit you?”

But thank you for taking the time out of your schedules to read my work. Please feel free to comment, criticize, suggest and appreciate. :)

  • Sit? Really? That’s the best you could do? O.o
    I’d much rather be “oh!” (element of surprise you see :D)
    Note: The verbal “oh!” (usually accompanied by exaggerrated hand gestures) NOT the texting “ohhh” (which generally means, “Meh, I’m bored.”)
    Anyhoo getting to the other part of the question.. YOU.
    You seem like a “yet”. The Abominable Yet 😀 Kidding. It pertains to the fact that you always have an opinion, usually against the original idea. TeeHee. *runs*

  • I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS.
