The Mystery Of Other People's Lives

I carried a box of old photos in from the garage this morning. I'd put it there last week to make elbow room for ambulance men and carers.

The pictures fall into three broad categories: 
Family
Holidays
Masonic dinners.

Me :What a lot of dinners.

Ailz: That could be why he lost interest in eating.  Eating was about conviviality. He couldn't see the point of doing it for its own sake.

Me: I hate eating with other people.

Ailz: Me too.
