Class reunion coming up in a month. $50 a head and a cash bar. I gotta pay 50 smackers and then buy my own drink? Look, I can afford it, won't hurt one bit. But this is a bullshit deal. This is designed to keep the bottom financial half of the class out if they had wanted to come.
I don't give a damn what they are serving, out here in Wichita there has never been a dinner worth $50. This is a filtering device. This is that "click" of well off kids that ran most of the functions back when the girls wore white panties, and most of them did pretty well the last couple decades, and so it's natural for them to book the event at the country club dining room.
To be fair, a night or two before this shendig they have a meet up at a bar, anyone can get in and the bar won't care if they are visiting and not buying. I will go to that. Still, this other thing galls me. I want to go but it galls me. The wife said she won't go. I already passed the cut off date for $50, sign up late and it jumps to 55. Shit, I don't eat meat normally, so 55 for rice or baked potato and a room temp salad? $10 or $15 for a couple of mixed drinks I suppose. Can't decide. I might see some old friends, that would be nice. But.
