  1. So he went to Wellman and took dinner at Amanda’s again. This is something a little hard to understand in 2016, for me, at least, but I suspect it has to do with distance and time plus friendship and convenience. As you said, the whole reimbursing her for the meal is something incomprehensible, but I suspect that is because we are in 2016 and they were not!!!

  2. I’ve noticed in Isaac’s past journal entries that people regularly dropped in and got a meal — whether Isaac was visiting others or they came to visit him. Guess it was considered normal.
