It was about the word dinner, as applied to sunday. Some people, not saying who, think that on Sunday, the word dinner magically changes to represent the meal directly after church, which is, on all other days, called LUNCH.
I think this is silly. And I had, and still have, a good argument as to why it is a ridiculous use of language, but I thought that maybe I would provide a little anecdotal evidence for those who remain unconvinced:
This past Sunday I went to lunch at the house of a couple in our church. I went with two friends, and this couple really wanted us to meet their kids who, just like us, are college students. We were all very excited, especially the nice woman who had created a masterpiece of a meal. But, in a strange turn of events, she gets a phone call from her son, saying that unfortunately when she said "Sunday dinner," they took it to mean what it literally means--the evening meal. Perhaps if she had said Sunday lunch things would have worked out. So, the kids never showed, and we got to enjoy even more food than we anticipated. I had a little convo with her about her use of the word "dinner" and "supper" on sundays, we went over the history of it, and the age group that generally uses it. I understand all of this. However, pragmatically, if the older, midwestern generation wants to communicate with the younger generation with greater clarity--Dinner is an evening meal, Lunch happens around noon, and Supper is only to be used interchangeably with Dinner.
End of story.
