solitary supper

for supper around 4:30 PM yesterday, i fixed a bowl of strawberries, canteloupe, and avocado. The avocado was slightly past ideal, mushy and slippery, and i ate it first. So then there were lovely strawberries and canteloupe. I got the ice cream from the freezer - peanut butter cup ice cream - and put it on top of the fruit and ate. Then I had some pimento cheese spread and crackers, and finished a diet cola. The life of a solitary nomad. 

I didn't choose this life, but it does have occasional perks. 

For some reason, a greater percentage of the adult and teen-aged population in the United States lives alone now than during past centuries. This is 2015, but I read this trend was evident in the last census. There are a lot of us hermit crabs around, in odd solitary confinement.
