I have a new Magellan GPS system, and he/she is in need of a name. I spend a lot of time being lost, so I'm looking forward to having this system. I'm relying on it to guide me to the beach on Tuesday morning. My son tells me that naming or anthropomorphising one's digital accoutrements is hopelessly old-fashioned, and yet it seems that the human voice guiding me through the maze of interstate highways ought to at least have a name.
I've googled women explorers, and come up with Isabella, which has a nice ring to it, but I'm not sure yet. I'll keep looking, and I'm open to suggestions. She seems to be a she, but perhaps only because I haven't figured out yet how to change her voice.
I'll keep trying . . . with any luck, inch 'Allah, and with her help, my next post will be from the beach.
