Think back or go back?

I’ve just heard about two high school events.  My high school. Where I graduated 26 years ago. Twenty. Six. My youngest brother in law is 26. Yeh.

So, one event is the school’s 50th anniversary. There’ll be an open house, and “social” (who says that in 2014?? 😐). That could be interesting,  seeing a few people from way back, maybe a couple of teachers I liked. The chance, though, of seeing a lot of people I know are pretty slim. 50 years means a lot of kids.

The other event is smaller, put on by a few classmates from our grad class of ’88/89. NO! 1989 not 1889 don’t be cheeky! I admit it’s  loooong time ago but still…
It’s to be at a pub downtown,  smaller, more intimate, word’s being spread via Facebook,  trusty news carrier service.

The thought of attending this one actually makes me nervous. I know we’ve all aged and drooped a bit. Hair slightly less full and shiny. Posture a little less striaght. But I’ve seen pix of some of my colleagues and a couple of them look great. I’m not ashamed to say how intimidating that is.

On Facebook you can post the best picture taken at the best angle in the best light in the best clothes. Live and in person is not always so flattering. One reason for going to these things it to see if the high and mighty have fallen. To see if the cheerleaders have lot a bit of the pep they had in their step. Time is meant to be the leveler of these things. I’m afraid I’ll go and everyone will look better than me, and then I’ll have to face the fact that I’m getting older.

We’ll see how things go.

About Bella

I've reached my 40's with a few battle scars, but I'm still in one piece so I guess that's something to be thankful for. Married for a long time...well, what passes for long compared to many of my other friends. Almost 20 years. 3 kids: a teen and two tweens. Heaven help me! There's a lot about me to know but I always think that others won't find me interesting, isn't that sad? Writing is my passion. It's an outlet; it's a way to filter my world and the experiences I have. Blogging was a foreign concept to me when it first came out. But I GET IT now. It's therapeutic to unload. It's fun to read about the experiences of others. This is my way of meeting and greeting, overcoming the obstacles of time and distance. My hope is that you will stop and read my blog. That you will enjoy what I have to say, and we can have a chat. You're welcome anytime!
