What’s in a name?
The wooden table caddy – where did it come from? Look up the word ‘caddy’ online and the variety of references might surprise you. For example, did you know that ‘caddy’ is the nickname for the elusive sea serpent Cadborosaurus willsi? Its features and habits are similar to the Loch Ness monster. No? Well how about a 45-pound barbell weight, a protective case for an electronic module or a non-playing role in the game of bridge? Who knew!
Many of us would know it as the informal name for a Cadillac, the iconic luxury American automobile. And more of us again as a box, jar, canister, or other receptacle used to store tea. Practical, purposeful. Just like a table caddy!
