First of all, can I just ask - how the heck did that happen?
'Cause I just graduated, people.
(Okay, maybe not, but 20 years? Geez.)
I went to my 10 year. And I enjoyed it. I was a little surprised by how few people had settled down at that point. Corey and and I were the only ones there that I talked to who had had more than one child and been married for more than just a year or two... lots of people were just starting down that path, and we were both pretty firmly entrenched in family life. But in all, I enjoyed seeing people. And catching up on their lives. And discovering that some of them had turned into lovely adult-people. Even some of the jerks.
The reunion this year is in July. On the same weekend of a pretty important wedding here in Spokane. (The 600 invitation bride's wedding.) We love this young couple. A lot.
Do I stay in Spokane and go to the wedding?
Or do I go to Astoria and go to my reunion?
I'm thinking a wedding with 600 invitees, and I'm not going to be missed much... and Asia and the kids would go, for sure.
And I LOVE going to Astoria.
But what if the reunion is akward? What if none of my friends show up? What if I'm a wallflower after all these years?
I do have to say, I'm in a good position to show up at a reunion... with all my working out and losing weight for the cruise, I'm pretty much rockin' the fab... And I've got some great new clothes I could bust out for the occasion. But still. I've been out of touch with EVERYONE from highschool. Haven't touched base with any of them since the ten year reunion. And seriously - going alone could be just awful. (Corey probably can't come... so there goes my secrity blanket...)
Staying home and going to the wedding with people I know and love would sure be a lot safer. And more comfortable. And I'm less likely to be surrounded by drunks there than at the reunion, for sure.
It's a dilema.What would you do?
