I graduated from high school

All of these other events seem much more prolific than the mere timing of my graduating high school in routine fashion. As many readers know, I have been pondering whether or not to attend the 20th reunion of my graduating class festivities. With the invent of FaceBook, I am no longer out of the loop with people whomI may have wanted to keep up with. I can’t imagine who else would want to find me – that has not also been able to do so yet. So why should I not contemplate a lovely beachside rental in Mexico rather than shell out the payola to attend a shindig to see people who have neither cared of my wellbeing or whereabouts for the last 20 years (and frankly the sentiment is mostly vice versa)?! I just do not have a clue. I guess at this point, there needs to be clarified an actual bonafied reason to attend this party-of-sorts.
