The lovely Riot Kitty asked me what a ‘poppet’ is after a recent post.
According to Wikipedia (reliable sources FTW!): “The word poppet is an older spelling of puppet, from the Middle English popet, meaning a small child or doll. In British Dialect it continues to hold this meaning. Poppet is also a chiefly English term of endearment.”
So a poppet, to me, is a sweetie, a darling, a lovely.
Rather like RK herself! 🙂
