heh, heh, heh.....
I wasnt invited to my 10th re-union(The organizers didnt much care for the "Non-Locals" as myself, and i didnt care for them either).
I went to my 20th reunion just because some freinds from out of town asked me to find out more about a reunion....Oh, bOY!!! I dont know about everyone else there, but I had a BLAST!!!..I had the most fun I ever had in my life! I even one an award(For losing the most hair), and that was between my and my best friend..He got an award for being the most grampa!...i NEVER GOT ANYTHING LIKE AN AWARD IN HIGH SCHOOL.(I never deserved one either tho)....I walked in carrying 3 ice chests full of beer(This was to last me all nite) and I had friends I never would've spoken to in school...It turned out that me playing the part of "Dallas" in that book, "The Outsiders" scared people from me. Thats how I wanted it,,...Thats what i got
Anyways, There was huggin' and kissin' and dancing, and apologies thrown all over the room from me
....I LOVED EVERYBODY!!!..And THEY LOVED ME!...Most all the people who didnt really know me back then wished they'd a made an attempt to get to know me.
(By the way, it took me almost 20 years after school to realize that people like nice people, not jerks).
The next day, I decided to go help the volunteers go clean up....When I got there, all people were gone
..They were done cleaning up...........I was SOOOOOooooo, depressed all the next day....I could still hear the seventies music, beers opening, glasses clanking, laughter from across the room......The "Spirit of 1976"
Most of these people live close by but i only see a few of them in passing, ....
I missed my 30 year re union because I had the weekends wrong, but I'm sure it wouldnt have been the same as the one before.(I can probably only carry one ice chest now!)
