40 years ago I graduated from High School. Whoa…40 years? Okay after a reality check, yes, it’s actually been a little over 40 years. I received an email recently letting me know about an upcoming reunion.
Well, it’s not actually a “class reunion”, because it includes graduating classes ’75-’80. I must admit I was a bit disappointed to see it’s not just our class. The reunion committee worked hard to put everything in motion. There is a dinner, a golf day and a tented after-party following a concert at our local outdoor theatre. All include five graduating classes.
Since I can’t eat out, I don’t drink and heat is my nemesis ( MAV trigger), that only leaves 30-minutes after golf trophies are awarded or a cocktail hour following the dinner. For me to attend.
I was really hoping for something simple that just included our graduating class. Something like dinner in the park, catered bbq style, and just our class. Oh well. So, I have been reminiscing a bit about my high school years.

Yearbook photo of me playing Desdemona to Othello.
Another yearbook photo, this one is of me having lunch. The word lunch is implied since I used to enjoy Pepsi and Hot Tamales candy as my lunch, giggle. Oh my, those were the days. 40 years ago I was 18, 5’9″ had an amazing metabolism and weighed 114 lbs. soaking wet and I was wearing a size 5! Ahh those were the days ( wink).
I have always been proud of the fact that I didn’t belong to any particular clique in high school. I was friends with everyone from the parking lot crew to student presidency. I have fond memories of high school for the most part. It was my happy place. But, seriously, how can it be 40 years ago?
When I was in High school, “Saturday Night Fever” and ‘Grease’ were the must-see movies.
The Blues Brothers made us laugh and tap our toes.
Students kept their notes and homework in Trapper Keepers.
The song, Shadow Dancing, by Andy Gibb was top of the charts. I loved all thing, Bee Gees/Gibb, I still do.
Rod Stewart asked, “do you think I’m sexy”,
And…there were still Saturday morning cartoons.
When did you graduate? What was going on in your life 40 years ago?
