What Do I Call These Things?
Clearly – I’m not the best at naming devices. It’s been two years since I first started speaking to people about The Rolling Exhibition and how I get around, and I still can’t figure out the name for my own shoe…
None of them have the ring that I’m looking for, and they don’t even really describe what the shoe might appear like to the casual passer-by. Furthermore, is it just a shoe, or do I need to specify the type of shoe that it would be before I specify where it goes? If so, I messes with the whole nomenclature and I have to start all over.
Those names don’t even make it sound like a shoe. Sounds like something you’d have to buy double-wrapped in a paper bag.
With so many problems confronting the naming something I’ve used for decades, you can imagine my concern about being charged with naming this new device. I want these things to look cool enough that your everyday biped wants to lose some legs just to play with them – and I can’t have a crummy name bringing down the sex appeal of these bad boys.
So – my charge to you – any name suggestions? I’m willing to hear anything, so send an email or comment my way if anything comes to mind.
