From High School
Yesterday I saw someone who was in my high school graduating class. Once I graduated from high school I didn't see many of them any more unless they went to the college I attended because my parents moved when I was a freshman in college. So really this is the first person I have seen since the sixties who was in my graduating class in high school. It was really strange because he and his wife had attended a reunion and had seen a lot of those people whose names I hadn't even thought of since the last time I saw them! Really odd. It was also odd that he remembered things I didn't. We never know what other people remember. I wonder if I didn't see myself every day if I would recognize me after forty-five years. I wouldn't have known him. Then my husband and I started wondering if people at the restaurant where we were waiting for our order were people we'd known when we were in college. Lots of old, gray-headed people were wandering around...we might have known some of them.
