I want 'em together, dammit!
Larry, as you know, there is a widespread philosophy about eating dessert first, because you don't know for sure if something won't come up before you get to it otherwise.

Many seniors who live alone do not eat properly and do not take the time to cook anything that requires a bank of time and work. You will notice that at many senior events the table is set with the dessert plated. The hot food is usually buffet style or served after everyone is seated. It was not unusual in the least for me to see the gals (and guys) picking away at dessert before the food even came out.
