I have to say I’m a little disappointed in the great minds of our universe. While focussing on frivolous things like climate change, Ebola, how to land a comet on Kim Kardashian’s butt and the like there are some very important issues which have gone unexamined.
Brisbane (in Australia) recently hosted the G20 Leaders’ Summit. Now I’m not too sure what went on there as the whole thing seemed ridiculously anti-climactic: years of preparation, weeks of panic, days of discomfort and… well, an hour or two of meetings between world leaders and that was it. I suspect the koalas featured in the cliched ‘you’re in Australia pics’ got more coverage than the substance of the event itself.
Of course there was a statement or two released after… and I’m pretty sure Australia’s elected officials were ecstatic to have to commit to… well something on climate change; but my point remains… why did they not seek agreement on one of the biggest issues we face today:
I was talking to someone recently and explained I’d left lunch so late it became an early dinner. And then I pondered…. what to call it?
Why is there no word for a combined lunch / dinner? Could it be because it’s rarely done; that eating a main meal before 5-6pm is something only adopted by the very young and very old? Or perhaps it’s just a bit naff?
I’m actually a fan of late dinners but I don’t know, perhaps the lunch dinner combination meal is under-appreciated and under-ultilised because we have no word for it. And… quite frankly, the words just don’t lend themselves to a smooth Brangelina kind of combo.
Or perhaps it’s our choice of words? Some call their evening meal ‘tea’ or ‘supper’, so perhaps they offer more options? Either way, I think the great minds of the world need to get their acts together, form a commission of sorts and give us SOMETHING?!
What would you call a lunch dinner combination meal?
