Before I ran away, to live in the slums of Manchester, I lived in a very posh part of Brighton and my kid went to a £10,000 per year public school (now he goes to an inner-city comp!). ANYWAY, he is always picking me up for calling lunch "dinner".
LOL! That's cos I lived in London for 6 years and I had to modify my language. Now I'm back oop North, I usually refer to it as 'dinner' and 'tea'!! But I never call it dinner and dinner. That would just be too confusing for my little brain. I hear other people say dinner for lunch and I have to admit sometimes it makes me cringe...that's my inner London snob sneaking out! LOL!
One of my London mates has lunch and supper. Supper! LOL! To me, supper is what you have after your tea...you know...the evening snack that's really another small meal!
Ha ha...now the can of worms has been opened! Lol
I call it lunch, tea, dinner...I lived in London for 6 years and had to change my accent from broad welsh to "non discript" Lol
I used to call it dinner and supper.
