Every week or so, I get an email reminding me about my high school reunion coming up in August. I was excited at the prospect of seeing some old friends again, until I looked at the people who had actually committed to come. It strikes me that there are really only two kinds of people who go to these reunions: those who want to brag about how successful they are, and those who are lonely and desperate and clinging to the hope that they’ll be able to hook up with an equally desperate person attending the reunion.
So I’m becoming less sure of my desire to attend. Should I go?
