Stevie Joe Defines "Davenport"

Apparently, my use of the term "davenport" confused many. Here's the poop:

Main Entry: dav·en·port
Function: noun
Pronunciation: \ˈda-vən-ˌport, ˈda-vəm-\Etymology: probably from the name Davenport
Date: 1853
: a small compact writing desk
: a large upholstered sofa often convertible into a bed

Also, more detail can be found here.

What you sit on in the parlor,
Stevie Joe Parker
