(Author’s note: Well, I did it. I got the full-time job. This means a little more security, and means a little more stability for my writing schedule. I am hoping to be back up to speed fully. Also, my health has taken a turn for the better, so I am celebrating. Enjoy today’s fictioneers.)

20 years passed since I left high school. I did things many of my classmates didn’t, in that time.
I left Minnesota, I left the United States, I left the Western Hemisphere, and the Northern too.
The funny thing is: I missed some of my classmates.
Tarik, the funny man of my choir days, keeps Minnesota’s air pure.
Dave’s doing great farm work in the Dakotas. Margot is keeping America’s workers safe. Adrienne is helping people achieve their best, and Chad’s keeping the mail moving.
Some of our paths chosen, some chosen for us. But for one weekend, we are together.
I was pleased to hear about the full time job, and to read about real people,
They are most certainly real. Great people that I know and love.
Great story this week. Re-unions… places to share the best of times, I suppose.
For some people, it can be. For others, it can be a painful reminder. In my case, I loved seeing everyone. 😀
Congratulations on the upturn in health and the full-time job. It has to feel good to have 2 less things to worry about. Sounds like you were a traveler, which means you probably had lots of good stories to share with your classmates. Good music and slideshow wisdom also!
I kept talking about Korea, repeating a lot of the same stories. I’ll get to Australia next time.
Nice tale, I find reunions great fun
I was nervous, as it was the 20th. But seeing a lot of the people together, it really made the difference.
Congrats in regards to the job, nice piece too.
Thanks! And welcome to my blog!
Sounds like you’ve all done things to be proud of.
My graduating class was probably one of the most active when it came down to people. There were a lot of them who ended up as massage therapists. XD
Nice. I do like stories about long time friends keeping in touch! 🙂
And we do. Those I mentioned in there, we all keep in touch, even if it’s very small.
Took me back to high school days. Lots of fun, good memories 🙂
Well, #25 is coming in 3 years. Got plenty of time to prepare for it. 😀
It’s the 55th anniversary for me 🙂
