Well, the flu seems to have vanished and I think I’m going to live to tell about it. Whew! That was close! After taking two full days off work – I’m rockin’ through some serious design work – – I think my Photoshop program is actually smoking!
I got an email today. It seems, in August 2006, my 20-year high school reunion is scheduled.
Yea. 20 years. Un-friggin-believable, ain’t it?
well, not if you saw my gray hairs hiding beneath the blonde
So, I get this email from my brother. Apparently, my name is on the “Lost List”. What is the “Lost List” ? It’s the list of people that the reunion coordinators have drawn up with a list of people that they are unable to contact, don’t have information for. The people on this “Lost List” have seemingly dropped off the face of the earth.
So, someone who is trying to track me down – got a hold of a friend of my brother’s, who then got ahold of my brother – who emailed me asking me to update my contact information with the reunion corrdinator folks. They emailed my brother wanting to know if he has a sister named “Lisa” and if so, could he please give them her contact information??
Now, my brother is smarter than that. As if he’s going to email them back and say “Yea sure! Here’s her address, phone number and email address – have fun!”
Ya know – I’ve worked too hard in my life to become ‘lost’ to all that is high school, and most of the people involved with it. I’ve never attended a reunion – and don’t intend on starting now. And yet, here they are – tracking me down like the lost high school geek that I am..or was. Except, I’m not interested in being tracked down. And the ironic thing is, I haven’t gone far. Currently, I live about a mile away from the high school that I attended, and my two children are attending the very same high school that I graduated from. How’s that for being a hometown girl?
Hopefully none of these reunion coordinator types ever grew up to become sleuths, eh?
Funny thing is – if you Google my first and last name? The first hit you get is E.Webscapes.
Buncha rocket scientists they are.
