Reunion rehashing

We (Jack Tripper, Chrissie, and I) arrived early, the first people to get to the reunion site. I ordered a strawberry daiquiri and settled in at the bar. A few minutes later the reunion head honcho arrived and we were giddy and hugged each other after ten years of not seeing each other.

There was yummy looking food to be had but I didn't partake. I did, however, down a rum and diet Pepsi as more people arrived. A lot of Facebookers were there and they knew of my dilemma to go or not to go. They all said hello and seemed genuinely glad to see me.

We had a class picture taken out on the steps and BJM floated me a loan as I didn't bring enough money with me to drink and get a photo. (Don't worry, I paid her back yesterday when we went out for lunch.)

There was ONE person who snubbed me intentionally. I know that because I tried twice to talk with her and both times she completely ignored me. She can take her smug @ss back to where it came from for all I care now. I have discovered that I am worth all the good stuff that came out of the reunion and her crappy attitude can stick to her like glue.

I stopped being self conscious about 30 minutes into the reunion. I wasn't deliriously happy at the reunion but as BJM put it, "It wasn't terrible either." I only had two alcoholic drinks. I smiled a lot. I talked to people I hadn't seen in 10 or 20 years.

I'm glad I went.

Sounds wonderful! I hope mine goes as well in November if I can make it up north for it.

I am so very happy for you. Sometimes we need to step outside our comfort zone and we are usually rewarded for it. :)
