Subject: Re: "little" and "jr"
In our student union building there are three sizes of coffee cups--all huge,
more fitting for soft drinks. The largest is called medium. The middle size is
called small, and the smallest is called junior. Why would anyone devise such a
strange system? Is junior commonly thought of as smaller than small?
