Class Reunions. Pick a Side.

Those who love the idea of a class reunion. And me.

At first glance it seems I may be in the minority. But I don’t care. I am taking a stand.

Someone has to do it.

And I am just the loose cannon for the job.

I am drawing a line in the sand and everyone who reads this blog needs to choose.

Which is it? Do you love class reunions, or are you like me? Fence riders are not welcome here.

There is no middle ground. Class Reunion

You’re either with me or against me.

Choose a side or the rest of us are going to look down upon you and talk behind your back (sort of like… oh, I don’t know… a high school reunion).

I just don’t get the whole concept of a reunion.

Getting together with a group of people you haven’t seen in years. If you liked them so much, wouldn’t you have some sort of contact in the last 2 decades?

I find myself not wanting to relive what happened in 2nd hour study hall during my sophomore year.

Don’t even get me started on the “big game”. It was big when I was 15. Not so big now.

I particularly don’t like the idea of going to a reunion to see who has failed. Or gotten fat.

Especially if I am the person everyone decides has failed and gotten fat.

Up to this point in my life, I have successfully avoided any and all reunions.

Yet I can’t escape them. Every time I turn around there is an invitation to one.

Why do people keep planning these events? 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, 20 years, classes from the 80′s, classes from the 90′s, graduate school alumni’… where does the madness stop???

These aren’t reunions, they are appointments.

I am a busy man.

My schedule is jam packed. Actually, that isn’t true.

My schedule seems to be wide open.

You would think a group of my old friends from high school would call and want to get together and talk about old times.

Unless of course, they don’t like reunions.

Maybe I’m not the only one.
