I see nothing wrong with that question. Can't one ponder on the curiosities of life?

Ah, then everything's ok. Sometimes stuff just goes over my head.
Well, it's only impossible if you eat 2 meals that day, unless you would then call your next meal, the next morning, "dinner." The problem with that method is that you would have to have started keeping track at birth, and you may well be eating your breakfast sitting next to someone eating their dinner.
