    I wonder how many people have the same connotation as I do for the word “davenport?” When I grew up in Minnesota, a davenport was a piece of comfy living room furniture. The word was used the same way in North Dakota and Iowa, and maybe some other places. When I arrived here in Utah, people didn’t know what I was talking about when I invited them to sit on my davenport. I learned that here, it is a couch.

    Davenport was the name of a series of sofas made by the Massachusetts furniture manufacturer A. H. Davenport and Company, now defunct. Due to the popularity of the furniture at the time, the name davenport became a genericized trademark in parts of the United States.

    I was six when I first heard the word “sofa “. We had a couch at home. I’ve never heard “Davenport “. I’ve only seen it in print.

    I could be Teignmouth, Exmouth, Torquay etc. Depends on the accent/dialect.

    Just because I don’t know where I am, it doesn’t mean I’m lost. I can get home from here, I’m just not familiar with “here”.

    I always get those two ladies confused. But then, they’re usually pretty confused, aren’t they?

    Not all who wander are lost.


    Most are, though.

    You know that dream when you are in a strange city and cannot find your car. Your life becomes like that. It sucks. Be kind.
