Good evening Gardening Grandma. As you are a teacher, I'd like to ask you something.
When I went to school 60 moons ago, I was taught that "the floor" was inside and "the ground" was outside. Nowadays I am always reading articles that, e.g., say "the girl was thrown to the floor outside the pub" and similar outside situations. Am I missing something, has the English language changed? Just curious, as I was always very good at school and it really grates on me when I read things like that!
