Semantics. Semantics. Dontcha just love English?

What is that thing my husband lies on...
a) couch?
b) sofa?
c) davenport?
d) daveno?

Your answer gives away where you live, and your age.

Same goes for many things...such as the terms you brought up: purse, handbag, bag.

Tote falls into another category of carryall. Is it a tote, carryall, or shopper?

Your answers give away where you live and your age!

There are no wrong answers!
