look

I just really hate the word "Shoppe." Unless you work at the renaissance fair, can we all make a pact never to use that word?


Thanks.

haha, i am so with you on that. i had to go to a renassiance fair type thing once while i was in st.george. i served chicken bowls. we had to dress like peasants. maybe it would be acceptable to say shoppe there. but probably not. haha.

But what if I want to start an apothecary?

Agreed! I mock any shoppe by pronouncing the E. (shoppy shoppee)

I do solemnly swear to not use "shoppe" ever ever ever.

I love all things British, especially the men, but I can't take colour and favourite. Why is the U still necessary!?!?

What if you were browsing through a highland village of Scotland. Would you like to find the Candy Shoppe or Shop? ;)

Sad thing is, I just moved home from Scotland today and am already feeling less cool. I have nothing to offer the internets now that I am back in the US.

Ye Olde Towne Shoppe---they all drive me nuts. I'm in on the cease and desist pact!

I love your views on words. The other day I was at a rehearsal for a Christmas program and they used the word, "ointment." Lena and I both started to giggle as we simultaneously thought of you.
