    Its called a sink because it sinks into the counter. I relized this when I was walking to the store for milk.. Then I thought about the word milk... Why is it called milk and milking... Can you milk blood? Anyone else think about why we call things what they are?

    LOL, I always think about origins of words...like all the time! It all started out that someone said politics means a lot of jerks or sth like that...I wouldn't believe it so I looked it up, that's when my obsession w/words started! Btw, the politics thing is not true!
