Old Friend

Recently I was reading a local paper and the realization of how long my class has been out of school hit me again. Larry Works, a friend of mine from Lawrenceburg High School, had his 55th class reunion picture in the paper. My class will do this in September. Larry and I played baseball and basketball against each other for 4 years, and we have a lot of fun talking about it now. I am sure as we reminisce, both of us become better athletes! Playing a high school sport leaves you with many memories. When you were 18 I can bet that you did not think about your 73rd birthday. Simple math tells you that when you add 55 to 18, you get 73. See? I did learn my math in school. What is nice is that we are still around to enjoy such things as a 55th class reunion. I find it hard to believe that a lot of people never go to their reunions. No high school experience could have been that bad that there isn’t someone you would enjoy seeing as the years go by. After all, in some cases you spent 12 years together. It is amazing that all those clicks that seemed to be so important in high school seldom, if ever, are still there after 50 years. The best looking guys and gals will most likely have aged just like everybody else. I will bet that if you go to your reunion, you will talk to someone you haven’t seen in 20 or more years. Unless one or both of you has spent time in outer space, you will be amazed how much your lives have so many similar parallels.
