skipped my 30th High School Reunion. Why ? The Past is best left in the past. If I look back on those 4 years of my life. I swear it’s a blur, not because I was stoned or drunk but because all it was to me was 4 more years of school till college. No Dances, No Dating, No Drinking, No Drugging, No Skipping School, No Prom, No Clubs, No Performances, No Sports. Not that I was at total loner. I do have memories of hanging out with friends now and again, going to movies, the mall, comic conventions, one Summer I even made a movie with a group of friends. Most of the people I would love to see again, never go to the reunions. I went to my 18th (Don’t ask) and my 25th. The 18th was kind of cool, it was classy, held at a country club with a DJ that spun all kinds of tunes. I was still single then too. But it really felt at times like High School all over again. The shuns, the cliques, people actually asking me if I graduated with them or if I was someone’s spouse. Most of the people that went were all about the party. For the 25th I went with my wife. I chair hugged. I just wasn’t comfortable, it was the same old cliques, the shuns although this time there was a band fronted by an alumni that only covered 80’s music. Dancing was out because the music bored me. By this time in my life I had giving up drinking, but that really seemed to be what the reunion was truly about. Not to mention the venue was downgraded. The 30th would only be worse a bunch of middle aged drunks that I had no connection to. No one to share the conversation of parties, dances, proms of the past. So, why revisit the past. It’s just not for me. It’s not a vanity issue it’s a what’s truly the point ??
