This year marks the 10th year anniversary of my leaving school. There’s a reunion and all, and I’m trying to make up my mind as to whether I go.
On the plus side, a lot of what I went through falls into the category of “crucial, formative stuff” that’s made me who I am today, and I am very fond of a few of my peers and staff there.
On the minus side, the half dozen or so friends I had at school may or may not be going, and I didn’t have a lot in common with the remaining 100 or so folk in my year. Every encounter I’ve had with them since then has been very amicable… but, y’know, do I want to throw myself into a context where I (at least 10 years ago) categorically did not fit in?
Have any of you gone to these reunion things not knowing many people well? Did you have fun? Did you tell people you were a professional killer by trade? Were you at school with Minnie Driver?
Incidentally, it’s also the 10th year since I matriculated at college and I have no ambiguity about that party. I’m going in with bells on. But then — I see half of those friends on a weekly basis.
Postscript: TEN YEARS man. TEN YEARS.
I can’t find the “ten years” scene on YouTube so this will have to do.
