I'm still 17...right?

This weekend is a huge 20 year high school reunion!  Crazy, right?  There's NO WAY I'm old enough for this. I still remember high school like it was yesterday.  

Now lest you think I'm actually taking part in this momentous occasion, let me set the record straight.  Nope. No way.  Not a chance.  Can I get an Amen?

First of all the tickets are $100 per person.  And why?  Because of the open bar of course.  I don't think this is very fair for all of us non-drinkers.  I'm pretty sure I wouldn't get my 100 bucks worth of Cranberry Juice with gingerale (and a little slice of lime thank you very much).  Add airfare to that and you're looking at a pretty penny for one night of uncomfortableness. (yes, I know that's not really a word).

Second of all, most of the people I went to high school with were pretty mean.  I had some really amazing friends, all of which have decided to skip the reunion as well, but as a general rule my graduating class was filled with a bunch of not very nice people.  Now I know what you're thinking.  It's been 20 years.  They've probably changed. I know I am not the same person that I was WAY back then.  But even if they have, we weren't friends then so the chances of us being friends now is not strong.  Or desired.

And lastly....I'm fat.  And have zits.  And no husband.  3 strikes and I'm out.

So instead I am going to lunch today with one of my college roommates that I haven't seen in 15 years. She found me on facebook!  I'm so excited to see her!  Now I am just trying to figure out how I can lose 30 lbs in the next 2.5 hours.  Maybe I shouldn't have had a donut for breakfast.  Ok. Fine. 2 donuts. guys are so judgy!!


  1. Oh my Lordy... we're soul sisters!!!!! My 20 yr reunion is in 2 weeks... & you couldnt PAY me to go! Its costing $150 for a couple ... & I went to school with the snootiest people EVER! I had a handful of friends from school & we're actually meeting up for dinner tomorrow! Now that, I'm excited for... but I told my husband, no way am I paying $150 to go be judged again for not having children, still being heavy & not being the millionaires that these people are... no thank you... I'm hard enough on myself - dont need those people back in my life reminding me of short comings!

    So friend - I'll have a drink this weekend for you & you have one for me... 20 years later, & I think we're pretty FABULOUS!!! :)

  2. Okay, so my 20-year is this coming spring and guess what? I ain't going either. Screw that. If I haven't kept up with them over the years, then I sure as heck don't care to catch up with them now. I have a handful of friends from school I still talk to and that's all I care about really. The rest, not so much.

    So, enjoy NOT going to your reunion, sista!!

  3. Oh my my...I had three donuts for breakfast and let's say 10:30 I had another know as a mid-morning snack.

    Reunions are lame. I mean why would I want to sit around for hours pretending to like people I would totally go down a random aisle in the grocery store to avoid. Plus I have four kids, three jobs, and two divorces...I'm pretty sure in reunion terms that also qualifies as three strikes you're out.

  4. My 20th reunion will be next year. I am not looking forward to it. I can not believe it has been 20 years. Time has flown by!

  5. Now that I live in my hometown again (which is small) I run into people from high school all the time. I just pretend like I don't know them. This is truly funny when they're your prom dates. Immature? Yes, but that's why you love me!


What's up little pup?
