IT smells so good!
what is IT exactly?
My husband and I agree on most things, but when it comes to meals, we're on opposite ends of the table. You see, he grew up on good ole' country grammar and I, on the other hand, grew up on latin lingo. So, what I call LUNCH he calls DINNER. Weird, I know... As a little girl, I trusted I was being taught the proper way of speaking English by my teachers, but now I'm not so sure.
When did LUNCH turn into DINNER and why wasn't I informed? You'd think all those teachers at school would have known better than to call the mid-day meal by the wrong name, right?! Aren't they supposed to teach their students the ways of the world. I guess they too were living in a different world than my husband. And don't even ask me how the LUNCH ladies got their names.
Come to think of it, they weren't the only ones living in La La LUNCH Land. The deception followed me all the way into the workplace. When I started my first job, they also told me I was going to have a LUNCH break and they specifically stated it would be at 12:00pm.
WHAT - LUNCH
All my life I've been mislead to believe that everybody eats LUNCH. But the truth of the matter is that there really is no such thing as LUNCH and there's definitely no such thing as a free one. You know, I've heard people say that before, but I guess I was just reading too much into it. People WERE trying to explain it to me all along and I just didn't wanna listen. I was in DINNER denial.....
But then I got to thinking, and the more I thought, the more confused I was again.
If LUNCH is really DINNER, then what do I call the DINNER I thought was really DINNER? Confusing, I KNOW...!!! I thought DINNER and SUPPER were the same thing- the last meal of the day. You could call it DINNER or you could call it SUPPER, kinda like you say tomato/ I say tomahto. But, NO, to my super SUPPER surprise they are two totally different meals.
What d'ya know?
You learn something new everyday. I hate to admit it, but I guess my husband has a point. After all, God didn't call it The Last SUPPER for nothing, right?!
So, now that we got all that straightened out, wanna go grab a bite to eat? YOU NAME IT. I'm up for anything.
(I hope =o)
