Back to the future…
Two reasons to be thankful you weren’t popular in high school
- You have to plan the class reunions.
- You would have to attend the class reunions.
I graduated from a class of over 400 students. I never knew half of the kids during my years in school. At the 30th high school reunion, 120 classmates attended. That’s approximately twenty-nine percent. About 1/4 of the graduating class was curious to see how everyone aged. The rest of us didn’t give a shit. We realized long ago that there’s a wide world out there. The 35th reunion saw an even poorer turnout.
It wasn’t worth the ticket price to return to yesteryear to reinforce what I already knew. Popularity doesn’t mean a damn thing. The friends that matter have never left me. I don’t visit them only once a year in five or ten year increments.
