I don't know why it is ok for the general public to just tell me this, but it's not ok for me to say whatever sarcastic thing I'd like to say. Since I've started living on my own, everyone young, old, polite, rude, has the same reaction. I seriously have this conversation 5 or 6 times a month. They say something like this, and no I'm not exaggerating or reading into it. It is not implied, or tip toed around. It is just the thing they say:
"What happens if you die, there will be no one to find the body".
So, if I ever I start getting close to someone I remember that Gilmore Girls line "There will be someone there to call the morgue".
Since I plan on living forever, this is not a huge concern for me, and if I'm saying it's a rude thing to say then you know it's bad.
It just got me wondering if that's all relationships are to some people, someone will be there to call the morgue. I guess that's why I'm still single, I could have that, but that's not what I want. I mean it's a nice sentiment and all but I want a life with someone, not just a life in the general vicinity of someone.
To me the much more concerning thing about living alone is the inability to eat an avocado. I love them, they are my favorite food. However, I never buy them unless I have house guests. You see an avocado has approximately a zagillion grams of fat in it, so I only eat half. However, there is absolutely no way to save half an avocado, even over night, even if you go in the cooking room and make it into another food through magic. It will always brown and taste slimy and gross. It's wrong to throw away half of an avocado before it's rotten and looking at the bad half makes me sad that I ate it to begin with. The Future Farmers of America haven't returned my letters requesting the invention of half of an avocado. Someday there will be avocados.
