My classmates and I celebrate our 20 year reunion this year. It seems odd that I graduated from high school 20 years ago. It baffles me at times that I’m actually a “grown-up.” 🙂
We had a nice “get-together” on Saturday. My friend Kenneth arranged it because he wanted something on the actual day, June 9th, that we graduated. Everyone who showed up, it seemed, went back into our high school mode of innocence before life got in the way. It was so refreshing to be around people who, as my friend Carla described it, just “got me.”–no pretenses–no titles—no issues…just me. It was great! Lou (my hubby) told me he could tell we were in high school mode…just in observing me (hahahaha whatever that means???)
I could tell life had negatively affected some. But for that moment…in that place…at that time… we were in high school again.
It’s funny that although we went to The High School for Health Professions, only a few of us actually pursued the medical field. One who did actually delivered my son. That was a continuous joke. hahaha (how could you let him SEE you???, that would be too weird hahahaha) But we all took it in fun. Everyone knew he was one of the smartest kids in our class, so I have no regrets. Plus he has good bedside manner and it was nice knowing your needs would TOTALLY be met because you knew the doctor. 🙂
