What are you trying to tell me?
Today I received two more emails from my mom that were wedding announcements from former high school classmates. Now I have been out of high school for ten years, I know to some of you that does not seem so long ago, but to me it is a long time and much has happened in my life since then. So every once in a while my mom sends me these little notes with wedding or engagement announcements and I wonder what she is trying to tell me. Is she trying to say, hey maybe you should find a wife or at least a girlfriend since these people did? Or is it more innocent,more like hey look what they are up to now or the town information? I live five hours from where I grew up and am very glad of this fact. I grew up in a relatively small town and was ready to go away for college when the opportunity presented itself. I needed to get out and see the world and get beyond the small confines of the area I had grown up in. So, now I don't really care what happened to the people I went to high school with, I was not good enough friends with any of them to care how their lives turned out. I went to my fifth year anniversary and I sat and drank two beers for about an hour (that included time for me to go find a Mac machine) and then I went and wandered around the mall for a bit before I drove home so that I was not home too quickly. I have no interest in going to another graduation anniversary till at least the 25th if not later than even that. Both my parents really liked high school and had a lot of friends that they wanted to see and some they even keep in contact with, but I didn't and really neither did my brother, so stop sending the wedding announcements, I just delete them anyway.
