Laughed With Her

Sunday, July 28, 2013

Can't just leave you hanging as I've been writing about my class reunion for days. Yes, I enjoyed the multi-class reunion a lot last eve. There were over 600 people there, 27 were from my class, and 12 were good friends of mine years ago. It was fun to reminisce. And hug. And laugh. Hubby and I danced, too.

I did get a few compliments. Perhaps the funniest was my old physical education teacher, now 87 years old, who stared at me, mouth gaping, when she discovered the awkward couch potato she knew is now a runner. She looked so shocked! I couldn't help but laugh with her.

Our 50th class reunion will be coming up in just 4 years. There will be more people there I know. That's just one minor motivation to keep in shape!!

    Last night I went to my 40th high school reunion. I wish we had teachers there!

It was a lot of fun. A lot of us were commenting that the women aged much better than the men! (Of course, we cheat, like coloring our hair! And at least we still HAVE some hair!)

I looked on an old calendar book of mine, and I see that I weigh slightly less than I did at the 20th reunion. Since then, I gained 40 pounds, but have lost it back!

    Most people dread going to class reunions and find any excuse possible: those of us maintaining at SP actually love 'em. (I remember my law school reunion a few years ago when I went 80 pounds lighter . . . fun!).
