I can just picture you lying awake at night wondering,"What IS a cranny?" I have no idea. Kind of like "every dog has its day". Why do we use these sayings that make no sense?

PS) I would appreciate it if you removed the thought "nerd" from your mind, Kristy. Or else, I shall be forced to break out fluffy fingers.:)
I was so disappointed that Michael didn't try to solve the problem with fluffy fingers!
Isn't a cranny a a really cross granny? I just don't know why anyone would want a grumpy old lady on their English Muffin. Hmmm.
I believe a cranny is the underside of a nook. The dark side!
All I know is that when my Granny got old, she no longer bothered cleaning: nooks or cranny...she just didn't see dirt...
OK, so Tim's thought on this one is that crannies are granny cramps! Thought I would share.
As opposed to nook whose definition is firmly rooted in every day usage? :)
A cranny would be the place where all your mismatched socks go to die.
