Rockin' it like it's 1995
So as previously mentioned, last weekend I made the trek back to Oklahoma to attend my ten year high school reunion. If you haven't been, you should totally go. It was a hell of a lot more fun than I expected it to be. Seriously. Unexpectedly fun.
There were some disappointments though. Just like in high school, the popular kids were swarming together, acting like they are still better than everyone else. But that didn't bother me, because there were plenty of people to see and catch up with and Jim was cracking me up. My favorite Jim moment was after a girl from high school finished introducing me to her husband and telling me all about their lives working as youth ministers, Jim stops by just in time to remind her of the time that she cheated off of him on a history test in middle school. That guy cracks me up.
We did the traditional "awards" ceremony, including things like "most kids", "longest marriage", "traveled the farthest to be here", etc. But none of the categories were what I was interested in. I had some discussions with friends at the reunion and here's the compiled list of what we would have liked to see:
1. Most time spent in prison
2. Most times divorced
3. Still lives with their parents
4. Most STDs
5. Most abortions (my personal favorite)
So when you go to your high school reunion, talk them into giving out those awards. I guarantee it'll make the event more fun.
