Why this post? Well this weekend, I am hosting a little get together of a few of the people I did like, but lost contact with. Thanks to the powers of Facebook we have reconnected and discovered we all randomly landed in the St. Louis area. At first, I wasn't so hip to the plan. I really don't like rehashing events. The past is over and let it be! is more my motto. As the day draws nearer, though, I am starting to look forward to it. I am around my husband's high school friends all the time, so it will be weird to hang out with people who share a similar background to me. I am not used to that at all. It will be interesting and I am actually getting excited about it.

My high school class is the only one in our school's history that has not had a reunion. Every year, our town has a big parade that reunion folks participate in. We have never done that. We have had ample opportunity - 5, 10, 15 year markers, but we didn't. Why? Because, besides our small individual friend groups, we DID NOT like each other. There I said it. I can't imagine we will ever have a reunion. Even if someone decided to throw caution to the wind and organize it, I doubt anyone besides the organizer's friends would show up. Sounds very....high schoolish. It is. Yet, I didn't have a horrible high school experience. Nothing beyond the typical angst high schoolers tend to have. I actually enjoyed quite a lot of it and had some great friends. But, I have NO DESIRE to go to a reunion and see the 188 other people I did not get along with. Obviously, I am not alone in this thought.
