I haven't kept in contact with anyone from High School. I wonder how my reunions are going to be. Until I read your post, I doubted whether I would ever attend one. But now? Maybe... :)

Gina

I am glad that you had such a good time re-connecting with people. What a nice feeling!

I am still good friends with my best friend from high school, and we plan to go to our 20th reunion together in two years.

This is great! What a wonderful post. Very glad it went well. Thanks for stopping by the Party. I'll get back to visit when I can. Best wishes!

Suebob

You are the person everyone at reunions fears, though - the one who just got better looking with age.

Sounds like a fantastic time.

I'm not in touch with anyone from my high school days, save for our reunion coordinator. Does make me wonder if I should suck it up and go for our 25th in a few years...

Wow. You may have just led me to reevaluate my stance on high school and how it's not worth returning, how I never really made any good friends until college anyway.

Huh.

I'm so glad it was warm and wonderful and supportive.

I've held onto my high school friends through the years and CHERISH those relationships. I've written tributes to some of my HS buds on my blog, and owe one dear friend the honor as well.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. I know what this means to you at this point in your life, and you ARE beautiful, in the best, kind of non-concocted, non-threatening way.

I suspect you did a better job than I in actually keeping some of those relationships alive. For me, at this point, there's no going back. I'm also scared that I would remember absolutely no one's names.

I'm so glad you had such a nice weekend!

Jay

Okay, I didn't go to my 20 year reunion for the very reasons you mentioned. So much posturing and "I'm better than you" and "My kids are so superior" and "I make so much more money". The few people I talk to that did go said it was just like high school. Everybody gathered in the same little groups they were in in high school even if they hadn't seen each other in 20 years. I'm glad I missed it.

But, I may go to the 30th reunion. Maybe.

Glad you had fun at yours!

Nance

Nice that you had a great time. My 30th was this summer. I didn't go. I just have no desire to. Sometimes I'm so unsentimental that it's spooky.

Betty

You're right. Thirty years. I've enjoyed every reunion since my thirtieth much more than those before.

kim

How nice to have a friend for so long.

Nancy

Well, well, well....You've come over to my side of the fence (re-read my response in your "have you gone to your h.s. reunion?" entry) - I'm so Glad!
I go because I don't care so much who my classmates WERE, but who they are NOW.

Mrs. G.

Beautiful post...why does it take us so long to become nice?

Beth

So glad it was fun. I went to my 10 year and just recently skipped my 20th - primarily because I thought the best of my friends from high school weren't going to be there. Turned out I was wrong about some of them and I regretted not going.

I remember Dad saying what you did after his 30th or 35th reunion - how enjoyable it was once they were all old enough to stop pretending. Pass that on to your boys as well. :)

amanda

Beautiful!

It's interesting -- I can relate to this post, but not in the high school reunion sense, in the Facebook sense. Dave bugged me for weeks before I gave in and signed on to Facebook. The reason why I didn't want to sign up was because I was afraid people from high school would find me and it would be awkward. And you know, yeah, people from high school have found me, but it hasn't been awkward at all. It's been...rather nice.

So that coupled with this post has made me re-think my feelings about a high school reunion.

I'm glad you had a good time.

Antique Mommy

If I were your classmate, I wouldn't like you because you're still so purdy. And then I would not like me because you're so nice. And then I would go back to not liking you because you made me feel bad... :)

For some reason, this really choked me up. I think it was the line about being happy and alive. That and how beautiful you are.

I hope to be half as together as you are when I've got kids heading off to college.

TB

Oh Wordgirl, I'm so glad it was a good reunion for you. So glad.
And I can't wait to hear more about your writing opportunity.

I second what SueBob said, "You are the person everyone at reunions fears, though - the one who just got better looking with age."

You just know that all the women were looking at you and thinking, "Damn that skinny bitch is hot. And she's funny and talented and her husband is a hunk and none of her kids are in jail. SHIT!"

You also score extra points because you helped engineer the whole thing.

All joking aside, this was a lovely post. You've convinced me to attend my class reunions when I hit the 30 year mark. *gulp* I'll be 48. I can handle being 48 - which you are single handily making look like a great age! You are rockin' 48, sweetie.

Mrs. Chicken

I'm catching up on my feedreader (I really do love preschool) and just wanted to delurk for a minute to say a) how wonderful to have such a clearly warm experience, and I hope to someday do the same; and b) you are one gorgeous woman.

Spamboy

Like some of the people that have commented, hearing your good experience is warming me up to the idea of attending my 20 in 5 years.
