Do people go to reunions? Having moved out of state and not actually staying in touch with people from High School, I skipped my 10 year. 20 is in only 3 years now that I think about it. Should I actually consider going to that?

Some people do go to them. I've thought about going to my 25 next year, but there isn't very many people from my school days that I want to see again.

I'm dreading it. An endless array of cheerleaders and prom queens.

"Hey, remember banging me?"
"Uh..."
"Hey, remember banging me?"
"Uh..."
etc

Probably.

Hahaha, I love the thoughtful intelligent conversations I can always find here. I did not go to my 10 or 20, partly because I was not anywhere near when they happened and partly because we had like 40 students. So a reunion for us might be 5 people.

Going to my High School reunion would be like being guest host at the Jerry Springer show.

It seems as though the general consesus is "they're awful holdovers from a bygone era, where people never strayed farther than an hour from where they grew up" and I shouldn't bother going unless by cosmic coincedence I happen to be nearby.

Maybe fo you sad-sacks but I ruled my high school.

I remember one time I faked illness so I could goof around the city all day in my friend's father's sports car. The student body were so alarmed they set up a 'Save Gianni' fund.

IIRC.

"Anyone? Anyone? Gianni?"

Here's a new one. Attached was a spreadsheet listing out about 75 different pieces of furniture totaling 11,420 units of some unspecified currency.
from: Wendy Young wendy.young1955@gmail.com
to: neilrobin <my@email.address>
subject: Emailing: DEACON VALUATION

Dear Mr & Mrs Deacon,
Please find attached valuation.

The furniture may achieve higher prices than I have estimated but Ball &
Claw is not as popular as it used to be.
We can put an estimated reserve price on all goods for your decision once an
offer is made.
Our charges will be 15 % commission,15% vat on the commission and a portion
of advertising, hall hire and security.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have and queries.

Regards,
Wendy

PS I wrote him back and told him to be more careful regarding to whom exactly he sends phone numbers.
