As the Verbs were driving along the other day, Mr. Verb ridiculed me (ever so gently, of course) for my upper Midwest usage of the word “bakery.” I said something along the lines of “I’ll just get some bakery,” meaning (as all normal speakers of English know) that I would get some delicious items which were baked at a bakery. Mr. Verb thinks this is odd. Mr. Verb says it would be like saying I’d get some butchery at the butcher’s. But now vindication is mine – here is the sign for Barrique’s on Monroe street, offering "Coffee & Bakery fresh daily." Hah.
