I’m a Tomboy

Since my name is Sage, I started wondering what that means? Sage is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Sage is “wise, healthy”. The name has associations with sagebrush, cowboys, and the Wild West. Oregon has sagebrush, but not where I live. And I just know there are cowboys out there with all that sagebrush stuff. And I saw all about the wild west on tee vee once. Mom says sometimes I’m wild, so that fits too!!

Sage can be a boy’s name too, but I’m a girl. I’m not one of these prissy girls with bows in their hair and painted toenails. No sirree! Not me. I can rough and tumble with the best of them. Playing ball is one of my favorite games and I don’t have to worry about whether I can get on the team–I AM the team!! Sometimes I let some of my friends play with me–we take turns catching it, but I’m the best at bringing it back! (not that I’m bragging or anything……)

So, what about wise and healthy? I think I’m pretty wise (Mom is snickering). Well, I do! I looked it up in the dictionary and wise can also be sagacious. Get it? Sag-acious. I like that word. And I sure am healthy. Healthy as a horse–except I’m a dog. Do you think we could start saying “healthy as a dog?”

Mom says I have to use logic. I need to analyze what I told you and come to a conclusion. That’s how it’s done–or so she says. What does she know. Oh, alright, Mom, I’ll get back to the subject–I’m telling this story, not you.

After all my “wise” analysis (see, told you so), I think I’m a TOMBOY! A tomboy is an energetic, sometimes boisterous girl whose behavior and pursuits, esp. in games and sports, are considered more typical of boys than of girls.

I wonder if that applies to dogs? I think that’s better than being called a bitch! What do you think?

  1. Hallo! We are here with the Saturday Blog Hop! Our Mama says she thinks of “sage” as being a special kind of herb that people in some cultures burn to spiritually clean themselves and the air around them. It is a cool name to have! We also agree that being called a “tomboy” is WAY nicer than being called a “bitch!”


  2. Hey, Sage!
    We think you’re awesome and since two of the three of us are girls, but the biggest and oldest of us is a boy, we’ve learned to not only hold our own but run things around here….how’s that for Tomboy? 😉 Mom puts some pink and purple on us now and then but it doesn’t last….we’d much rather rough and tumble! Nice to meet you!

  3. Hi Sage! You and Toby are adorable! I’ve always been a tomboy too – brothers and all boy cousins – and I’ve got one of those names too (which I love now but didn’t always as a kid!) I think being a tomboy is very fun 🙂
