So I was talking to the mechanic about my car the other day and I realized that I had been referring to my car as "her". Now this is not something I normally do, but on further thought I realized that there were a few other objects I had ascribed human traits too. Mostly things I've had for a long time. For example I've named my favorite blanket and a potted plant I've had for years. Anyone else do this or something similar? Is it something you do all the time or only to favorite objects?
