My high school reunion is coming up. The last one I went to was 25 years ago, and I didn’t enjoy it much, though the afterparty was great. But this one I’m looking forward to, in large part because my oldest friends from kindergarten, Karen, Carol (not my wife Carol), and Bill will be there. Haven’t seen Carol since 2000, and had been largely out of touch until I got an e-mail from her out of the blue a couple weeks ago, with her apologizing for being a poor correspondent. Wife Carol is going to the first night informal mixer, but not to the next night’s festivities.
I went to the high school reunion of Carol (my wife) a few years back, and it was, as I described to my friend Karen recently, lethally boring.
1) Do you go to high school or college reunions? Why or why not?
2) Do you bring your spouse/significant other (SO) to these events? If so, are you a sadist?
3) Do you go to your spouse’s or SO’s reunions? If so, are you a masochist? How did you cope?
Your replies are most welcome.
