High School Reunion..To Go or Not to Go? February 27, 2012

Filed under: Link Ups,Lists,thoughts,Uncategorized — Sara @ 3:59 pm

10 8 (Mildly Humorous) Reasons I’m likely to pass on my high school reunion:

• I haven’t gone anywhere, anyone who wanted to stay in touch could have easily, and I have stayed in touch with those I was closest to

• Facebook is basically a giant high school reunion every day

• I rarely get a sitter, I’d much rather spend a kid free evening out with the hubby or our friends

• I didn’t really like high school the first time around

• I saw pic of a previous years reunion…it was in a bar…doesn’t that say enough??

• It’s only been 10 years…I don’t miss anyone that much yet…ask me again in time for my 20 year reunion

• I might get beaten with a plastic coke bottle…Remember that school that made Letterman’s Top 10 List? That was my school…here’s a clip of the article for your entertainment value:

Thursday, February 21, 2002

Just after 11 a.m., a handful of students in the cafeteria began fighting. The school’s two on-site police officers tried to break up the fight using pepper spray. The melee escalated and backup officers were called in. By the time they arrived, 25 students were throwing bottles and fighting each other. Over 200 other students were nearby, most of them watching the commotion, and staying out of the way. Two police officers were wounded in trying to restore order. One was cut on his hand while the other sustained a cut to his head. Eleven students received minor injuries during the fight. Most of these injuries were minor scrapes and bruises and for breathing in the pepper spray. The backup officers were able to pull students out of the fight and arrest them. Their actions brought the whole fight to quick end. Six Bowie students and two adults were detained by the police for instigating, or sustaining, the fight. School officials said Bowie is not a troubled school, even though police records show that 14 fights have already taken place at the school since January 1. In comparison, Martin High School, the district’s largest, has had 17 fights already this calendar year. Source: Dallas Morning News – 13 Hurt, 8 Held in Fight at Arlington Bowie High

and here’s where I found the article online [I just copied and pasted it for you guys]

—I have to say the so-called ‘riot’ wasn’t nearly as entertaining or amusing as the news made it out to be

• I just don’t care that much

    We only had one reunion and that was our 50th in 2006 with 18 of our class of 24 present. It was lots of fun, lots of time to catch up on our lives and remember our times together in prep school. We never got together before that because we were never able to agree on a weekend to get together, being scattered all over the country. We were supposed to have a 55th last summer, but only three could make it–I couldn’t (still in therapy with my new hip)–so it didn’t happen.

    My oldest daughter has a reunion coming up several months from now, but it’s not the HS in FW where she graduated—it’s the class she was in in Iowa before we moved to Texas. She is excited to go–she’s been back there three times. Her sister only goes to college and camp staff reunions. Those all have good memories for them and lots of continuing friendships. Non of that happened for them in FW so they have no interest in reunions there.

    OH wow, after that Letterman report no WONDER you just don’t care about going back – who wants to get hit with a plastic bottle? I’m with you!

  3. Stasha Says:

    We cannot possibly have you assaulted with plastic anything!! Stay put and hit the town with hubby instead! Done.

    True, there are better ways to spend a rare kid-free night that at a reunion.

  5. I agree there are far better things to do on a child free night, though in my opinion, having the reunion at the bar would be a plus more than a minus!

    See, now if I had an idea the reunion might be that entertaining I might actually attend. As an on looker of course.

  7. Totally agree that if your going to get a sitter you should go out with your husband!

    Thanks for your two cents everyone!!!…I think it’s unanimous – A rare kid free night is better spent out shenaginizing with the hubby then at a reunion 🙂
