Thoity Years.

I just returned from a meeting for my 30 year reunion.
Since I have nothing to do I've been helping find 'lost' classmates.
Seems I was the only one with the brains to think of going to for clues.
I have changed a lot physically since high school. No longer weigh 140 nor have the football helmet hair.
I have no hair at all actually.
Why did I put myself through the torture of meeting with a bunch of ladies (I use that term loosely) who are still as stuck-up and self-absorbed as they were in school?
The guys that have been helping didn't show up tonight, so it was me and some members of a former 'girl club' from school.
Something like Decca, or Gunaike, or Nike, or Future Airheads of America.
After their 'ten minutes of astonishment that I didn't look like my graduation picture anymore I wanted to stand up and shout:
"You all look like GRANDMA'S!!!!!"
Then I realized they were grandma's.
Then after listening to them gossip for ten minutes about classmates, I wanted to yell:
"You all LOOK LIKE GREAT GRANDMA'S!!!! At least I've always had MANNERS!!!
But I didn't.
I kept my cool and tried to make them laugh.
Now we're bestest of friends and I can't wait to spend two whole days with them at MY reunion.

Hey, you are funny. Do you know I think that lady Aunt Jo is flirting with you?!

I hate reunions - especially high school reunions. Everyone expects to see you as though none of us never change. I think actors have that same problem every time they're in a movie. We say... "ma'an, she's gettin' old."

Uncle Joe said...

Well seriously,
I could see the 'little old lady' coming out in them and they don't seem to be aware of it. Denial can be a wonderful thing evidently.

They're all still stuck up 30 years later? That's pretty sad. Makes me wonder if it's because they never really got a life. I'm too busy and happy to be stuck up. (But then I wasn't stuck up in high school.)

Aunt Jo said...

you look waaaay younger than your age so you don't look like a grandpa yet....except for that one gray hair that spouts from your eyebrow.

i bet you don't make it the whole two days. i know you and you will not be able to tolerate all those grannies with their clique-ish, better-than-you attitudes. (then again you will be sitting with your rowdy crowd making fun of them.)

will the film crew from Class Reunion on Bravo be there?? if so i want to watch. what character would you be? the tall-dark-and- handsome-funny-guy-with-great- lips-with-formerly-wavy-hair?

If you want, I'll show up as one of your "lost" classmates. They will REALLY think I've changed!!

Them: Wow!! You don't even look like the same person!!! Didn't you used to be Mexican?

Me: Yes, I was Mexican, but I had a Caucasian transplant and got my boobs reduced.

Them. Oh.

Me: And by the way...

Yeah, sometimes it's tit for tat, and you have to go alone to your reunion cause that's how it is, it is what it is
