Giant Microbe Genders!
Sort of along the same lines as giving them names, but not...

Do you refer to your microbes in gendered terms? Or are they all asexual?

Mono is definitely a girl to me, and stomach ache is a boy, as are flu, and athelete's foot. HIV is really asexual to me, but sometimes I refer to is as a 'she'.
