a woman who has passed the age at which women typically marry (for the first time) and/or have children without doing either (derogatory term; "maid" is short for "maiden" meaning "virgin", and stems from the former presumption that a woman who had neither married nor had children was a virgin)
My mother had an old maid aunt who lived with my mother's parents.
Referring to unpopped popcorn. An Old Maid was considered a virgin that did not have her hyman popped. The similarity is between popcorn that was not popped and Old Maids that have not been popped.
Not pre-heating your oil for popcron will yeild less old maids.
