i feel like i should ring a triangle bell before typing this.

Oh dinner, my favorite meal of the day full of delicious salty proteins and carbs. You’re certainly tasty. But today I learned that the word dinner originally meant breakfast in French. “Disnar”, usually meant the largest  and first meal of the day which was usually eaten around noon, then people wouldn’t eat again until really late, which was called supper, eventually people kept adding meals before “disnar”, and so as not to change the name it just keep moving down the list until it became the late meal we know today! Fun facts :D
need to know more: dinner meant breakfast
