As I mentioned a little while ago in my Is it Normal post, that I use a shopping cart to get all my “gear” from one side of the church to the other. My gear includes, but is not limited to: my computer bag (usually with my Mac and my Dell); my bin of folders for handouts, outlines, and music for the praise band; and of course, my guitar.
I’ve heard my share of jokes as I push this monstrosity through the halls. “Where’s the sale?” “You better get that back to Wal-Mart” and my personal favorite which just happens to be the most creative, “Is that a shopping cart?”
Well since I’ve had it, I’ve always had more than enough room to carry all my stuff, nothing has ever fallen out as I turned a corner (which happened more than once with my old mode of transportation: a wagon), and it’s a great conversation starter. But I’ve felt like something has been missing.
A name. All the great inanimate objects have names like B.B. King’s guitar aptly named, “Lucille.” So for the next month, we are having a “Name that Cart” contest where students can submit any name they want and on Sunday, December 14th, they’ll vote on the winner. And the winner will get a prize. If you’d like to submit any suggestions, I’ll take ’em. But until then, enjoy the picture we took for our announcement slide.
