    That's really rude and invasive. Next time, go out, so if she follows you you can just keep going.

    She loves avocado! It was in the lunchtime salad today. Today's afternoon snack was red pepper with almond butter as a dip. I'd like to have more avocados, but they're more expensive than pears.
