I just checked my lottery tickets and it did not happen for me yet. I am hoping that my dream comes true before my 50th class reunion, as I want to go back and relive my glory days in style. I was not all that popular in my class, but I did have some friends, all of which I have lost touch with. I went to my Junior Prom and my Senior Prom, but I never dated a girl that was in my class. I didn’t get any class superlatives, like the most likely to succeed, or best looking, but I was told that I came in second place for the class clown vote. I never participated in any school sports and I never joined any clubs and I never got involved with any activities, except the senior play and introducing a guy who was running for class president of the student council. I did go on the senior trip and that was a lot of fun. I was more popular with students that were younger than I am, but I won’t be invited to those reunions.
I guess it is not that big of a deal if I don’t win the lottery before my class reunion, as I don’t think that I will recognize all that many of my classmates anyway, especially if nobody is wearing nametags. The only class reunion that I ever attended was the 15th and I got stuck at a table of strangers who I didn’t know and the funny thing was that they all got along better with my spouse than they did with me. If I don’t go to this one, I am certain that I will never attend another, but if I do go, I don’t have any idea what I would be reminiscing about. I will probably look at the list of people that are attending, before I make up my mind.
I am from the class of 71, so I probably have about 16 months before I need to hit the lottery. I would love to pull up to the event in a big chauffer driven stretch limo and have a smoking hot high paid call girl on my arm. I won’t be impressing anyone with my three unpublished books, but maybe I could take some dancing lessons and show off on the floor. There is no need for me to impress any of these people, as I don’t care about any of them.
