Many times I've moved from 1 home to the next, 1 city to another, however, the transition never contained changing the meaning of words. At one point in my life that I really thought dinner (1) and supper (2) could be interchanged when referring to the evening meal; but oh, how really wrong I really was. I recall the first realization of my mistake like it had been yesterday. This led to my discovery of an ancient plot to starve the world and Mrs. Gump's (3) continuing fight against her enemies that were hip. My mum had only recently met the guy that was to become my stepfather, David. He seemed like an okay guy. We got also. He let me play with his chainsaw, and in trade, I instructed him the way to flatten a tool shed with an oak tree. One day my stomach started to growl. David and I had spent that morning proving humans' excellence to trees. So, I casually asked if he'd like to join me for dinner, (4) however little did I understand that this oft-heard query was meaningless to a wise man like David. He stared in desperation, as if to say, "What is this supper you speak of?" I contemplated his bewildered appearance, thinking he had not heard my question. I repeated the petition and was once more met with a similar expression. "What?" David said. "You want to go buy a sandwich," I mentioned clarifying the significance of my prior query. "Oh, you still need to get a meal," he responded. I then returned among his confused looks. This man was at least twenty years my senior, and nobody had ever explained to him that supper had been the meal following lunch? Or is it the other way around? Had I been misled my whole life? Was there a global conspiracy attempting to insert a meaningless phrase to the English vocabulary? Had my own mother.
