So, I'm one of those nerds who is all geeked up for her class reunion. In fact, I'm involved in planning this year's reunion.
Let it be known that I went to a small, rural high school. My graduating class had 72 people in it -- three were exchange students. We didn't have the normal cliques that I heard about other kids having in their high schools. You know how people of a certain age often ask the "Which Breakfast Club character were you?" My usual answer is "A little of each one." It was possible in my high school. Though, I guess I wasn't that much of a Princess or a Criminal. It's hard to be a diamond earring-wearing, sushi eater when you're the daughter of a farmer.
Our 1)-year reunion was alright. However, the real fun came after the actual reunion when we hung out at our friend Beaner's house. A few of us sat around a fire until 5:00 a.m. It was a blast. That experience is what we're trying to recreate with this reunion -- a hog roast at the lake.
It's been a challenge finding old classmates. I'm on the verge of starting to call people's parents to get their contact information. But I'm such a dork that I get all nervous about doing that kind of thing. So, Joe Rock, if you're out there, drop me a line so I don't have to call your mom and dad. Please?
