My graduating high school class just held its 30th reunion. Having attended our 20th and really not gaining anything out of it, I had decided not to attend the 30th. The cost was $35 per person, which included hors d'oeuvres and a DJ. Wooo Hooo. I am sorry but if I was going to spend $35 per person, it would be for a dinner for 2 at a nice restaurant, where I could get a glass of wine, coffee, and dessert.
Why also would I pay money to sit in a room full of people that I haven't kept in touch with? The last reunion I attended was boring. The busiest place in the room was the cash bar. I guess the graduates are a bunch of lushes.
I had attended all of the meetings to organize the event. We put together a booklet with a pic of everyone that attended and also some blurbs about how everyone was doing. Most of the organization committee members sat together at during the event. It is hard to believe that people still clump in social groups, but it rang true at this event.
Oh well, once a wallflower, always a wallflower. Or, maybe, I no longer had anything in common with these people.
