I have been for some time considering names for my cell phone. I do not want to humanize it with a personal name. I am wary of entering into that kind of relationship with a phone, I have seen what can result.
I will henceforth refer to my cell phone, whenever possible, as my umakhalekhukhwini. According to a note scrawled in one of my workbooks, this is the Zulu word for cell phone, whose literal translation is: "the one who cries from the pocket."
