Preparing for Reunions.

Listen / Download

To go, or not to go, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of one’s high school or college reunion, or to sit it out, especially if you were Mr. or Mrs. Nobody.

You might have been a pimply geek then, but now you’re a millionaire dot-commer, and you want to show it allll off — the clothes, the car, the babe. Or, maybe you’ve got better things to do with your evening than spend it with a group of people who wouldn’t give you the time of day a quarter century ago.

For better or worse, the way we were is NOT the way we are. Even for cheerleaders. And you can choose to spend the reunion weekend telling the truth about your failing business ventures, or you can reinvent yourself when you meet up with your former boyfriend, the teacher who flunked you, or the roommate who wouldn’t loan you 50-bucks. What ARE you going to wear?
