Morton’s Steak House

Yesterday I went to a dinner with my father. We went to Morton’s Steak House. The event was sponsored by the company for those individuals who made more than 250,000 for the fiscal year of 2016-2017. They served steak, salmon and vegetable pasta. It was a three-course meal that also came with dessert. It was a delicious meal and I enjoyed meeting some of my father’s associates, but one thing I didn’t like is that it felt a bit snobbish and elite. I felt a little out of place. I did not feel like I belonged in this group. One person commented on how he disliked Trump, and another person made trivialized comment about my experience in the military, “Glad you did it, glad you got out, huh?” he said. I just didn’t like the setting, it wasn’t for me really. But they had free drinks so naturally I helped myself to some whiskey and wine. Towards the end of the night, one of my father’s colleagues son directed me to the bar where I met Keegan-Michael Key. Key is a famous writer, producer, and actor who has starred in MadTv, Saturday Night Live, and also produced his own movies and television shows such as Keanu, and Key and Peele on Comedy Central. I did not bring my phone to the event because I wanted little distraction and I wanted to be fully present, emotionally and physically. It’s funny because Key actually asked me if I wanted a photo, I declined, and said I just want to “shake your hand.”
