today’s the day. it’s been a while coming, but we’re ready. you know, we’ve been hanging out for awhile, we surf, research, waste precious time, the things all good friends do. and now it’s time to take our relationship to the next level. i’m ready to call you my bff forever. but, i’m just not comfortable moving on unless i know your name.
i know it’s really name your pc day and don’t worry, i could never, ever, never confuse you with a pc – you’re way better than that – but i think you’re ready for a name, too. i mean, you know my name – you even know my pseudonyms. you know my kids’ names – their real names.
i believe i have the perfect name. i know you have a preference for apple, but gwyneth is already using that name for her kid. so, what do you think about pippin? what, oh, you wanna know why pippin. well, i don’t want to bore you so i’ll give a short reason, if you want to know more get your friend, the internet, to take you here.
newtown pippin has been called the classic american apple. it holds the honor as the oldest commercially grown native variety in the united states. and it has a place in our lore, as the apple of george washington’s eye.
so, why don’t we take the name for a test run… see how it feels. if we decide it’s just not quite right, well, there’s always next year.
