Gadget Names

This probably puts me in the minority of the DOC: I don't name my gadgets.

I've got a Medtronic pump, a FreeStyle meter and soon, a Dexcom 7 CGMS. And I call them "the pump," "my meter," and "the dexcom." Some people seem to give them funny names, people names, etc, but mine are just descriptors of what they are.

That's all.

  1. The only thing with a funny name for my is my Dexcom. I kinda got hooked on calling it an egg or some variation of that because of it's silly (read: frustrating) shape. But I've definitely gotten weird looks from everyone (friends, family, strangers) when I say I'm hunting for my egg cause it fell out of my pocket.

    I'm not terribly good at naming other things. My bro has a name for his laptop, his cell phone, his mp3 player. He's convinced that it makes it more his. I usually just call the device by it's functionality or it's manufacturer.
