When Fussy is hungry, we don’t care what you call the meal as long as food happens.
But one follower of Grammar Girl wrote in to pose the question: Dinner or supper?
Jake from Kentucky said that when he moved to Virginia, he was labeled a hillbilly for calling the last meal of the day "supper" instead of "dinner."
Grammar Girl neither confirms nor denies his hillbilly status, but she does explain on her blog why a Kentucky native would likely choose one while a Virginian chose another.
