2013, Los Angeles: I was renting a furnished studio apartment from a stranger I met on Craigslist.
There was a kitchen, but I never cooked in it. I preferred to buy pre-made salads and eat with plastic knives and forks, that way I would never have to do the dishes. I figured, I'd rather pay for takeaway that have to do the dishes. Then I'd throw all of the plastic bowls, utensils and wrappers in the bin once a month. The system worked well.
