11. Thing

en.wikipedia.org)

The governing assembly in Germanic, Scandinavian, and some Celtic societies.

Over time, the meaning of the word "thing" shifted from "assembly" to "object." The next time someone asks you if you're going to "the thing" they just might be referring to something very specific.
