Just an editorial note. When I use the term "the other day" it may in fact have been a day which occured a week ago, several weeks ago, a month ago, several months ago or even several years ago.
For example in the post entitled "We're all out of beans" our visit to Taco Bell was a week ago.
In that case the term "the other day" would still, in my opinion be within the standard and not cause a great commotion.
However when I to tell you "the other day" my friend Craig Tovey bought the complete Voltron action figure on Ebay, you'd be disapointed to know that it happened in October of 2007.
