My graduation class will be having its, uhhh, well the 35th (I can't believe it) reunion. Instead of the usual dinner and dance at a nice restaurant, they are having a weekend reunion. Starting with a cookout on Friday evening, which everyone can bring their families to. Then Sat. will be a shopping for the gals and golfing for the guys afternoon. Sat. night will be the usual dinner/dance.
I'm wondering if people will go to this, and if they do why. A friend made an interesting comment to me that she already saw the people she cared about and why would she go to see people she wasn't friends with and that didn't care about her in high school. This really got me thinking. Is a class reunion just a show off time? Maybe an adult version of a popularity contest? Do people go that haven't been successful?
Now I have to decide if I'm going. It really doesn't seem like it has been 35 years since I was in high school.
