Friend’s Mom: And what did you do while [redacted] was in class?
me: I took my laptop to the Westin and got some writing done.
FM: You went to the Westin? [laughs]
me: They have a tuna tartare that I like.
FM: Yes, well, you know, most people would just go to a Starbucks. You go to the Westin.
Note: the tuna tartare is excellent in this particular Westin off of Logan Circle in DC. The tuna is layered with mango and avocado. Yum.
