Deja vu

I just got home from my high school class reunion.  It was fun and it was interesting.  It made me want to go back and start all over again.  The people I knew as kids are now adults.  Some are the same as always and others seem like totally different people.  It made me wish I had paid more attention in school; they were talking about things I didn't remember.

I took very few pictures.  I guess I was too busy talking and having fun.  We had a "meet and mingle" at a pizza restaurant Friday night (very casual) then dinner and dancing Saturday night.  One of the guys who kept asking me out but didn't appeal to me at the time was much more interesting with age.  The "cool" kids were actually very nice and friendly.  I had a chance to talk with two women who were friends all the way from childhood.  Their lives have been very different from mine.  They married early and stayed in town, while I went to college and moved around quite a bit.

People came from all over; one couple drove all the way from San Diego and several from Colorado and Florida.  One of the guys is in a rock band in France and couldn't come but he sent messages and emails and videos.  When I was a senior we had a foreign exchange student from Columbia, a very handsome and smart guy.  He married a girl from our school, and they came to the reunion from Arizona.  I was a little surprised by some who actually married each other from the class.  Most of them didn't date in high school but connected later in life.

Interesting.  I'm glad I went.  I wish it had lasted longer than just a weekend, so we had more time to catch up with everyone.

I'd love to know what they all said about you! "Remember Judy? So quiet in school, and what an interesting and well-travelled life she's had!"

Oh, agree with Rachel.
I think it's pretty neat that
you could have this experience.

Wow! Sounds like you loved it. I have a cousin like that, she's now in a relationship with a guy she knew in high school, but didn't date back then.

It was a little like time travel, seeing all of those familiar faces again.
