Re[2]: 'old maid' ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 5 Jan 1996 12:31:40 CST From: Joan Hall Subject: Re: 'old maid' DARE's anecdotal evidence suggests that the term 'old maid,' for an unpopped kernel of popcorn, is chiefly North and North Midland. But we didn't ask this on our Questionnaire, so we don't have nationwide coverage. Are you familiar with this term? If so, when and where? Thanks in advance. Joan Hall
