After months of procrastinating, today I finally got around to starting my blog about the mid-life crisis I am pretending not to have. And isn’t it ironic that as I began the process our mail was delivered … and in it was an invitation to my — THIRTY YEAR high school reunion! That isn’t possible! It is a mistake … it must have been intended for one of my older siblings! But no, there it sits staring back at me with my name on it. And worse yet – as I read the invitation I found I could not even remember the person coordinating it. Who is she? Did she graduate with ME? I have never heard of her. And really I am not SO OLD that I should be forgetting high school classmates already … am I??
At least I have no dilemma as to whether I should go or not. I am terribly unsentimental about some things and have no desire to dwell on my adolescence or acquaintances from thirty (?) years ago. But just the same, I find myself glancing at the invitation and at the website address where I can go to look up old classmates. And sort of just … wondering ….
