Who is spearfruit? Or maybe the question is what is spearfruit?
It is kind of an odd name for a blog, don’t you think? It makes perfect sense to me; well that is because I thought of it – I came up with the name.
So to answer the above questions; you know who spearfruit is – it is me – it is Terry. But what about the question; what is spearfruit?
Here is my thinking when it came to my blog name ‘spearfruit’. Prior to retiring I worked for many years in the Information Technology industry. Some of those people are kind of nerdy and think very much outside the box – you have to – to be creative. Our society gives no second thought to the names ‘Google’, ‘Apple’, ‘Android’, ‘Adobe’, ‘Yahoo’, ‘Amazon’, ‘Yelp’ and the list goes on. Our society gives no second thought to the names ‘Atari’, ‘Coca Cola’, ‘Dr. Pepper’, ‘Sega’, ‘Sprint’, ‘Starbucks’, and the list goes on. Information Technology apps, software, everything that runs on computers and smartphones and many other devices have to be upgraded with fixes and improvements. These upgrades for some companies will have names associated to them. If you have an Android device, your latest release of that operating system is either ‘Lollipop’ or ‘Marshmallow’. The latest Apple operating system upgrade is ‘El Capitan’.
These names may sound odd to most people, but not to me. So, spearfruit is not odd to me either.
In 5 days, I will be publishing a post to introduce my husband to you. The name spearfruit was created by me and relates to him. I have a pet name for him; no, it is not spearfruit; but spearfruit is the name that came from his pet name.
Here are some hints – see if in the next 5 days you can figure it out:
Breakdown my blog name into 2 words
Find the meaning or history or definition of 1 of those words
For the other word, find the surname that is associated to it
Once you have figured this out, you have found the pet name for my husband. If you are unable to figure it out – that’s okay, I will reveal it to you in 5 days.
Good luck my friends!
