Okay, so it went a lot better than I expected.
You may remember that I mentioned my reunion a few weeks ago.
Last week Saturday was the big day. We ended up being an hour late (we’re always late), but luckily it was pretty informal so it didn’t matter.
The first thought that went through my head was: “I’m not the only one who got fat….YAY!”. Apparently my own body issues was my only stumbling block to having a good time. That, and how quickly I could get….lubricated. Hubby and I cracked open our wine and let the good times commence.
It was so good to see how everybody had grown up. There were your odd pockets of people that still wouldn’t mingle with anyone else, but for the most part everyone chatted to everyone else with none of high school prejudice we had 10 years ago. We laughed and reminisced and talked the night away. We had a few quiet moments remembering all of our friends that had passed away since we matriculated (11 in total, I was told). All in all we had a blast.
In fact, so much of a blast was had that we’ve decided to have a reunion after party. Only about half of our year was able to make it to the reunion because of the long weekend so we’re doing it again….in summer. They’ve even specifically requested that everyone bring their kids along instead of leaving them with sitters.
I can’t wait!
