Over the past few weeks I’ve been debating whether or not to attend my 20th high school reunion, which is scheduled for November. I really have no idea as to what to do. My memories of high school are overall positive and the occasion would give me an opportunity to catch up with a few close friends that I haven’t seen in years. On the other hand I have no urge to take part in a reunion; nor is there any curiosity as to how people’s lives have turned out. Finally – and this is my worst fear in considering attending – I have no interest in conversations that take the form of "pissing contests." Perhaps I’ve seen too many Hollywood movies that take place around reunions.
Still, I am willing to leave open the possibility that my attendance would be worthwhile for some other reason. So are there any reasons to attend? By the way, how about that mug shot? It looks like something you might find on the Post Office wall.
