It's just a restaurant, I know, but I've never been. I promised myself that I would go only after I felt I'd really earned it. Never knowing what that meant, earning it, deserving it, I've kept a Luger's steak dinner on a pedestal so large that I might as well be Thumbelina. Besides that, I never bothered to define what precise goal, when reached, would be enough for me to finally taste that perfect Brooklyn Porterhouse.

But what a week it's been. Incredible lows, hard work, difficult decisions, sad sad sad, real Adult Stuff, and, then! Out of nowhere, a phone call, some good news, an incredible high. And then another. And another! I had been so discouraged, and now it's raining, it's pouring. Well, it couldn't come at a better time. This good rain; it's hiding my tears. And suddenly, Luger's, your steak dinner: I'm so close I can taste it.

Meg, remember when I decided to be a vegetarian for a year? At the end of it, Mom was supposed to cook a filet mignon for me as a reward for making it through the year. But I couldn't eat it. I no longer wanted the reward I had promised myself. (Mom actually promised me.) That's when I became a real vegetarian, replacing my diet of chocolate and cheese with chocolate and cheese and vegetables from then on. Point is: claim your reward, or you'll end up like me.
