A single prime as walkaround?

Not unusual

I bring my camera everywhere with me. I bring it to work everyday. Most days I'll just bring one lens. So I look at the shelf in the morning and go what I do feel like today. It's always fast (2.8 or better), but often I'll grab the 50 1.8. It's tiny, weighs nothing, and performs well (amazingly well on my new body).

Does anyone in this forum utilize a single prime lens as their main walkaround lens?

If so, which prime? What sort of subject matter do you shoot? I've been trying this out with my 50 1.8 and Sigma 50 2.8 Macro. Got to admit, I sure like the light weight. And....have been somewhat surprised at the few subjects that I've missed. With effort, most walkaround subjects can be captured. Is this an unusal way to shoot.? Thanks
