A quarter of a century...wow


This Saturday is my 25th high school reunion. I don't think I am going to go. If you are as old as me, have you been to yours?

I did go to my 20th. It was fun, well planned (thanks Krissy!) but... I spent most of the night talking with people who never talked to me (or I to them) in high school. Good to see that we have all matured. The people I would have liked to see again didn't come. The people I really want to see, I see.


It's not that I want to hide. Part of me would love to pull a Romy and Michelle...show up and convince everyone that I invented post-its. Don't all high school reunions turn out the same? The jocks are now fat and bald; the geeks are now rich, still geeky; the fast girls are still fast yet wrinkled.


I hear your gears moving, that brain churning...where, responsible one, does that leave you?

Still thinking about your reunion? Check out this post at Reel Life Wisdom some great movie quotes about reunions.

I went and had a good time. Alot of my close friends weren't there....but it was fun. My favorite quote was this nice guy who said "the people who were A-holes in high school, are still A-holes".....apparently I wasn't an A hole or he wouldn't have said that to me....or would he?
