    What is the word I'm looking for?!

    I'm trying to think the right word for a "common friend." I mean, like if there are two people that know eachother, somebody they EACH know is the word I'm looking for. I think it starts with "co"

    Thanks.

    The word is bacon (bak -on) You're talking about bacon(1). If you know bacon(1), you're a bacon(2)

    I think I would say they have a "mutual" friend, but that doesn't begin with "co".
