Last month was 20 years since I graduated high school!
Seriously, a moment of sadness...not because I would like to be 17 again, but because if the last 20 flew by...the next 20 will surely pass at the speed of light.
And I will be 57...
Cole will be 26
The twins will be 21
Ok..enough of that.
I'm sure I have vented about my high school experience before..and I'm not sure if it's just the universe trying to make me relive the crummy 3 years I invested in a school half way across town, just so I could speak french all day and never use it again...
Ok enough of that too.
As much as I try and forget my high school years, in the last 3 weeks I have had 4 "friend" requests on facebook from former high school "aquaintances"
Not "friends" as facebook like to call them..
But people who never spoke to me, or better yet...a girl who slammed my hand in my locker and told me to:
"tie her shoe bitch"
Yeah, I'll be adding you in a heartbeat my "friend"
So I'm curious, as we age, do we forget the fruits of our past? Do we assume we can all just be "friends" now that we have kids, are more mature, or are we simply suffering from long term memory loss?
I have a motto...and it's testing me weekly these days.
IF YOU DID NOT TALK TO ME IN HIGHSCHOOL, JUST DON'T BOTHER...
Having said that, I friend requested a girl from high school who I adored. She was smart, athletic and was one of the few who treated me with kindness...I "requested" her a week ago.
Enough said. Maybe MY memory is not as sharp as it used to be..
