Weird, weird day. I ran into someone I haven't seen in 12 years today. A girl I used to work with was looking at the same store as my sister for a wedding dress. How do you catch up after 12 years?(The answer to that is I got divorced, remarried, had two more kids, and now I'm a grandma. Seriously, so much for small talk!) Is she obligated to invite me to her wedding now, just in case we are friends again? (The answer to that is no.)
Then, tonight, I'm minding my own business, and everyone else's, on Facebook, and I get a friend request from a guy from high school that I haven't seen in...gulp...24 years. (OHMAGOSH am I really that old?!) So then, I start looking through pics of his friends, then their friends, and before you know it I'm having a little class reunion all by myself. I left the town I graduated high school in six months after graduation and never looked back. I was never able to attend a reunion at first because I was out of the area, then I lost interest. Tonight was my first time laying eyes on any of these people since graduation. There was even a picture of the guy I was so madly in love with all through high school. Not my actual boyfriend, but the one I could never quite snag.
Before anyone starts worrying about my stalker potential, I did not send anyone a friend request. Most of these people were acquaintances, not real friends. It is just really weird how much smaller the world has gotten lately. Oh, and in case anyone was going to be nice and say, you're not that old...a little girl I used to babysit for is a professor at Cardinal Stritch. Seriously, people. How is this possible?
*LOL* loved your post... probably because I'm living it, too! well... not *exactly*... but I can totally relate. It is a strange thing, this instant-reunion technolgy!ReplyDelete
