Reunions are funny things, aren’t they? Some people love them, some dread them. Some “boycott” them (like Superman did for one of our high-school ones!). Some like reunions of family, but hate reunions of friends. Others like reunions of friends, but hate reunions of college chums where you feel like you should have lived up to something by now. …
I loved a recent post I read from Billy Coffey called Reunion. He was talking about a high-school one, though — his 20th. But his description of the dread and uncertainy is spot-on.
Yet that’s not the one I went to this weekend. In fact, the one I went to this weekend wasn’t even associated with my high school (exactly). And we’ve known each other longer. … And, in full disclosure, this wasn’t even the actual reunion — it was a “mini-one” to start planning for a bigger one.
Hmmm … I’ll let you try to guess which reunion it is (although I don’t think you will!) — want to take a guess?
When you’re done guessing, you can hop on over here, and read about which reunion we were planning.
Another reunion being planned ! I bet I know which one u are involved in planning! u can be our publicity spokeperson with all of your talent and wisdom !
Great to see u at the luncheon this last Saturday! I can’t believe that it has already been about 33 years since I have seen you! Can anyone out there guess what reunion is being planned? Too bad that we will not be traveling on an airplane this time! Steven, are u on-line? lol
Reunions are a funny thing… I have to say I am thrilled to be a part of this one (which is very out of character for me!). It was great to re-connect with Jean and Kim and to see you, Laurie, and Robin again. One of the possibilities for entertainment at this event is Steve’s rendition of “Blue Suede Shoes” and/or Sonny and Cher performing “I Got You Babe” . There will be a chance to make ammends (Robin) and maybe a chance to revisit a historic trip to our state’s capital. Anyone close to guessing yet?
Sounds to me like a reunion of old co-workers….did you all work at the Register together?? Wait, Steve and Blue Suede Shoes – thats your old neighbor, so maybe an old neighborhood reunion??
I’m here! So, how are we doing this? When, where? Do we need tickets on AirCal? 🙂
Good guessing going on, here! Debi, I’m most impressed with you, because you didn’t know all these people directly! But your memory that “Steve” who sang “Blue Suede Shoes” was my old neighbor was right on — and even though it’s not exactly a neighborhood reunion, it is from that correct era, and involves those same people. … I’ll post tomorrow with the details. …
Can’t wait to see what it is!
