I love when people take the slightest opportunity to express themselves and run with it. It reminds me of a point I took away from my first time at Creative Mornings Charlotte last week, when I watched a stranger, on a dare, sprint into the street uptown outside the Bechtler Museum and scream something into the abyss, like: “City of Charlotte! I am a creative being. You will bend to my will!”
It was magnificent. Aren’t we all creative beings? We create ideas, meals, schedules, businesses — and then there are the people who create more entertaining Internet network names than the rest of us. It’s the little things.
Some of my favorites:
The clever play on song lyrics. (If you haven’t listened to “Pretty Fly for a White Guy,” here you go.)
The flashback to an Internet phenomenon featuring a dancing banana.
At Park Avenue Condominiums in Dilworth
The pirate-inspired exclamation that just makes people wonder, why?
The slang phrase others can’t quite decipher but appreciate anyway.
The ungrammatical, mildly hostile approach to your neighbors.
The seemingly nonsensical name selection that only builds the intrigue.
The tech-nerd angle that is so witty people want to thank you for making them chuckle.
What did I overlook? Tweet @Charlotte_Five. And, of course, don’t forget the Creative Mornings-inspired hashtag: #CharlotteIsCreative.
Because, when it comes to WiFi, it is.
