Bunny, Gregory and Amy have wandered off to get some more food at the Food Trucks @ Young Circle; I'm standing guard (literally—there are no chairs) at the table (no chairs) we've been using.
A gentleman, alone, walks up and stops at the table. In one hand he's holding a small empty cup, in his other hand he sets down a large chocolate shake. He then grabs the straw sticking out of his shake, covers the top with a finger, and proceeds to transfer a sample of his shake to the small cup.
At no point does he acknowledge my existence (and to be fair, I didn't acknowledge back). He just intently transfers some of the chocolate shake from one container to the other via the straw.
After transfering some three or four strawsful, he picks up both containers, and walks off.
I titled the previous post as “Notes from a bimonthly gathering of food trucks in Hollywood, Florida.” I noted that the Food Trucks @ Young Circle were bimonthly from this sentence:
Starting tonight and every other Monday …
Food Trucks at Young Circle Every Monday, Starting Tonight (and yes, I didn't notice the huge headline at the top of the article)
To me, the phrase “every other Monday” translates to “this Monday, not this Monday, this Monday, not this Monday”—in other words, you skip a Monday.
Bunny informed me that no, it does not mean that; as phrased it meant “this Monday, and all the Mondays after that”—all other Mondays.
Biweekly—is that “twice a week” or “every two weeks?”
Even the word I used, “bimonthly”, can appear to mean two different things.
Man, I hate antagonistic phrases …
