Sorry, I know I asked this before, but I can't find the answer using the search feature. What's the address for Cooper's, new cheese/gourmet shop in Duboce triangle? Thanks.

      Ok not on food but could not resist. How come some people say "Caddy Corner" while others say "Kitty Corner"? Just wondering.

        No idea, but maybe this defintion can straighten out the confusion :

        Main Entry:
        Pronunciation: 'ka-tE-"kor-n&r, 'ka-t&-, 'ki-tE-
        Function: adverb or adjective
        Etymology: obsolete cater four + corner
        Date: 1838
        Variant(s): also /-n&rd/
        : in a diagonal or oblique position : on a diagonal or oblique line

        Main Entry: kit.ty-cor.ner
        Variant(s): or kit.ty-cor.nered
        variant ofCATERCORNER

        NOW i know that the editors of the board do not like cut and paste, so i am going to credit where this came from so that i don't get yelled at!
        It is taken from Merriam-Websters Collegiate Dictionary online.

        And basically he words are a bastardization of Catercorner. which came from god only knows what olde english ranting....

        Have a nice day!

          That is great, thanks for the results of your research Jupiter. Proof positive that words are fun. Probably has the start of a potential thread on the not about food board along the lines of "words and the people who use them" on the next Oprah.
