This kid can't stop naming everything crazy names!
I love to give things names. I think I’ll call you Hal. I’ll also call your sweater Fred and your umbrella, Big Al.
I can’t stop naming things. I name everything I see. My baseball’s name is Sherman and my bat’s named Woe S. Me.
My shoes are Brett and Bart. My socks are Rick and Rack. My jeans are Walkin’ Willie and my T-shirt’s named Bo Jack.
My eyes are Moose and Juice. My feet are Stan and Fran. I name everything I see and I name everything I can.
When my sis says pass the salt, I say, “Don’t you mean Michelle?” When my brother wants my jacket, I say, “Don’t you mean Miguel?”
Finally, the other day, my mother sat me down. She said, “You must stop naming everything you see in town.”
I promised I would stop it. Then I named her necklace Bud. So now I have a new name of my own….
