One of my oldest and dearest friends, Ginger, made the trip out to Wyoming for that old cliche of chick flicks- The High School Reunion. And it was...
It was weird, okay? Let's be honest. It was weird. I mean, sure, I only live a town over, so the others who live near by I see every so often (one fellow graduate even has a kid at the school I work at), but not that much, and with Facebook, you can kind of find out about anyone you were wanting to know what ever happened to, I suppose. But that's not why it was weird. There were still faces and people I hadn't seen in ten years. Maybe it was a bit surreal. Most of us had been together since kindergarten- that's a long time. So it was strange to be back with people you hadn't seen and yet knew. But let's call it a good weird, whatever it was. Here's to you, Class of 2004.
The real highlight of the weekend though, was Ginger's trip. I'm lucky in that there are people I've known since before I can remember. Ginger isn't- quite- like that, but awfully close. We were attached at the hip since elementary school. So we baked, we played games, we ate out, we had fun....And we dressed up. Surprisingly, not the blogger's idea, but a ton of fun, even if not many fellow alums did. All dolled up, it felt like we were ready to strut out stuff, meet our fate and... feel better about the horrid haircuts we had in the yearbook (freshmen year, I'm looking at you).
So- did you go back to your high school reunion? Or will you, for all you young ones out there?
