A question of great importance
So, do you call your evening meal dinner or supper?
Back in Missouri we called it supper. When I moved to the Seattle area, it was dinner. Here in Idaho, it seems like it depends on who I'm talking to. For me, it will always be supper. Dinner is at noon, but I'll accept the word lunch, too.
I almost got into trouble once (in Washington) at a first aid training when they were using me to demonstrate how to assess level of consciousness. The question was, did I know what time it was...and since it was nearly noon, I answered that it was about dinner time. I thought I was going to get a real assessment and probably some unwarented treatment just because they use the wrong word for the noon meal.
