It has been brought to my attention - and I could not agree more, really (shout out to Marilyn) - that we should stop giving a woman's name to a negative things. Girl names should be saved for lovely things - like cars (shout out to my beloved, JaLisa), boats, planes, RVs, etc. Lady names should reflect solid, dependable and necessary things. Not to be a complete man-basher, but it seems completely legitimate to use male names to describe unfavorable things. My fat is unfavorable, and thus requires a male name. I have officially taken "Irene" off the table. "Frank" has been suggested - but unfortunately, I have an association with that name. That kind of weirds me out - so I have come up with a list of names I think would be wonderfully suitable. I was thinking of "Shamus" - but thought that maybe sounded like I am ashamed. As much as I don't have a great deal of pride associated with my flubber, I am certainly not ashamed of it. I do realize how insane it is of me to put this much effort into such a silly thing, but I think having a name for this....padding....will be something to entertain me. There are enough things about this process that are not entertaining in the least, that I can use anything that gives me a chuckle.
I would appreciate any input you may have regarding these names. I am also open to additional suggestions.
