RIP High School Reunions

High School Reunions

At the end of May it will officially be twenty years since I graduated from high school. High School was not altogether an unpleasurable experience for me. I had a few friends, I got my driver’s license, and I learned the all-important “beer before liquor, never been sicker; Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear” rule. I’d say I had an average high school experience.

I skipped out on our ten year reunion. There may have been a reason but I don’t remember it if there was. I did, however, attend the pre-game the night before at which I may have drank just enough to become unfiltered around some people I hadn’t seen in a decade. It was nice and easygoing. I had a few beers with some people, talked and we all went our separate ways, most of us not to speak for another decade.

  1. I could have gone without the reminder of it being 20 years since I graduated. I don’t like the official reunions, but I like the side events which involved getting shit faced. It’s just like prom night when I decided to spend a bunch of money alcohol rather than on a dress and some crappy banquet food. Prom night may have involved a gravity bong and a swimming pool. That is way better than doing the Electric Slide with a bunch of people you didn’t like 20 years ago and still don’t like.

  2. This post is so fucking on point , it’s like I wrote it myself (except I hear I’m less funny 😔😔😔haha) I said this last year as my 10 year reunion approached. I have a group of girlfriends that I have had since 1st grade or before. Everyone else, I chose not to keep in touch with. Because honestly, has I could care less haha. Through social media I feel like I see them enough and damn if I wanted to hang I would call ! But I hated high school, so maybe I’m bitter haha
