Ok who goes to high school reunions and why?? I mean really, If I wanted to have contact with those people I would. Thanks to the internet, you can track down darn near anyone you want to. In Oct. I will be dragged possibly kicking and screaming to my husbands 30 year reunion. I should add I went to the same school and did indeed hang around with some people from his class. Those people most likely won't be there. We cut so much class time to go "play" during school ,why would we go back for this?
Maybe marrying a social butterfly was not a wise choice for anti-social me. No not the serial killer type of anti-social, just the not so fond of people type.Worse part is I know about it enough in advance I am going to whine about it for the next 7 months and get myself all worked up, it won't be as bad as I think, but bad enough.
It does make me wonder, do other people just love these sort of things? They do seem to be tradition, is it for traditions sake, or are there people who look forward every 5 years to these get togethers?
I have a low tolerence for bragging and it seems these things just turn into brag fests. Thank heavens for alcohol, which makes any gathering tolerable!
Tonight I will be dragged to a dinner put on by my husbands work, I am beyond thrilled to go to this thing :o(
Tonight will be the first time I have had to truely do the social thing in about 14 years, so whatever tiny bit of social skills I may have once had are long gone or at least very rusty.
Time to figure out what to wear, appears p.j's are not proper attire, time to drag out my grown up clothes.
Any tips and tricks not to lose my mind tonight and next fall will be greatly appreciated.
