Wild Reunion



Saturday, I took a sojourn down to Wildwood NJ to a place called Westy's for the Annual Archbishop Ryan Reunion. It's an "Every year" Reunion so it is packed.

My friend Pam called and asked if I was going. Since I haven't seen her in about 10 years, I decided to make an appearance. Not the merry socialite I am today, I don't really know too many people from high school. Of the 3 people that I hung out with in high school, I am still close with two of them (one is a cloaked reader of this here blog) and they couldn't make it (read: had little desire to make it).

While there, I saw three guys that I went to school with. One I barely knew and the other two were the class bully types. "Hey! Great to see you. You were a real dick in high school." Doesn't go over well. So I made pleasantries and tried to ignore the voice of Gollum in my head saying "Deathlok is falses. . .he speaks false."

After about an hour of standing there and having people come up to me and saying "Hi! Is your brother/sister here!" It was suggested that we go back to the Denise Callahan's house (a girl from the old neighborhood). I few of us went back there and we caught up a little bit. Very nice.

The point of all this is. . . .of the guys that I saw, I learned this. I Look Great! . . . Well, comparatively. I swear to God I wanted to say "I think I went to school with your son." I now believe that minimal drug use and a lot of drinking is indeed the fountain of youth.

You have friends? And they quietly read this drivel? Yikes! (I wish I had a friend.)

Don't feel to bad: I was at a wedding on Saturday, and I had to be quite FALSES!

Dude, that is such good news on the drinking front.

Well, I'm off to grab a beer. Gotta keep those wrinkles at bay, you know.

How do you explain Keith Richards?

I went to a reunion five years ago and the "bullies" still had stuff to say under their breath as I passed by, well except for the really obnoxious one that got expelled at the end of out junior year.

The final deed: He jumped up on the stage at the end of the prom fashion show and did the PeeWee Herman dance.

I don't think I'll be going to the 20th this year. I'm still too much of a loser.

I knew you back in high school and I know you now AND the word "Great" should not come in to play when describing your appearance.....unless it's used in the phrase "greatly grotesque"

If you would have seen the cast of Cocoon down there, you would say different.

"Hey! Great to see you. You were a real dick in high school."

I feel like saying that every few days since one of the biggest douchebags from my class at Ryan lives down the street from me (thanks to his daddy's money).....big, roid-raging football faggot!

But I get the last laugh because he's a chubby, balding bastard now and I'm still REALLY good-lookin'!

Oh, and Ryan Reunions are gay.
