5 years?

So...Facebook has informed me that EHS class of '04 has a 5 year reunion coming up sometime soon. May maybe?

Well, I think it is too soon for a high school reunion. I mean, technically, we haven't been out of high school for 5 years, right? Half of our class still wastes away their weekends together. In fact, I'm pretty sure that leopard-incest, at least, runs rampant all over the U of U, BYU, and USU campuses. This is not to say that I don't love my friends from high school. But, the thing is that I want to see my friends from high school, and I've kept in touch with most of them, and I don't have the slightest interest in seeing people that "want to do lunch" (but actually would prefer to see me eaten), think "we should get together some time" (but wouldn't touch me with a 10-foot pole), etc.

I'm sure that finals are making this reunion seem absolutely unappealing. And, although I hate to admit it, I'm sure Caitlin will convince me to go somehow.

Was anyone else's 5-year reunion this alarming?

I thankfully never had a five year, but I'm two years away from my ten year. Scary, huh? I'm old. but I agree with you on all fronts. So skip it if you want, and have an alternative plan. And then go to your 10 year. I miss you! And I hope that finals aren't kicking your trash. How are you and Harry? It was so great to see you! Thanks for letting me stay with you guys!

While reading the first paragraph I was thinking of all the reasons why you should be there, and a 5 year reunion without you there wouldn't really be a reunion at all. So call me selfish, whatever... I want you there.

(The first of many forthcoming strategic comments to convince you to come. Stay tuned)

We had one and it did feel too soon.

I remember that reunion. I won a free Jamba Juice and Parley Baldwin developed a crush on Faviola Hernandez. Steve Gonzalez brought his wife and little girl, and Colby Neuman ridiculed us for showing up when other people didn't. (I never quite understood that one...).

Be alarmed, but still go. I'm staring down the 10-year one here in a couple... UGH.

I was just as alarmed as you were about it and have yet to meet someone else who had a 5 year reunion. And I still haven't decided if I'm going to make it.

Hilarious! "leopard-incest runs rampant all over the U of U" I'm still laughing.

While it is CRAZY that we have been out of high school for 5 years, especially since most of our class does still hang out with each other every weekend (also hilarious), I have to say I would probably go if I was in Utah. It would be funny & probably lots of fun.

I am possibly coming to Utah in June (maybe). If the reunion is in June I will totally go with you.
