I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting punchy or because of my poor reading habits, but I was convinced that when I read the definition for abed it would say “had sex with Abe.” I really, really need to get some rest. Either that or I really, really need to become a bit more literate.

All abed means is to be in bed. You don’t necessarily have to be having sex with someone called Abe in that bed for the word to apply. But, if you want to, that’s your up to you. I’m quite open minded about that sort of thing.

I’m a heterosexual man, so this isn’t an issue for me unless, unbeknownst to me, women have started using the name Abe too. They do it with Sam as short for Samantha. Maybe they also do it with Abe as short for Abigail. I don’t get out much so it’s possible that this is now a common name for women. But this is all totally beside the point in a discussion on the word abed.
