HOW ABOUT A FREEUNION INSTEAD?

I’ve been wondering for the past couple of months when my 10-year (TEN YEAR) high school reunion would be. I figured I would get something on Facebook or in the mail. Nope, neither. Finally getting the better of my non-existent short-term memory, I remembered to Google it the other night. It turns out we do have a reunion planned, and for a mere $75 (SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS), I can be crammed into a painfully trendy bar with people I didn’t care enough about to keep in touch with. Sounds awesome, right? *crickets*

Thing is, I had no problem the other night spending definitely more that $75 on some new Coach bags (ON SALE). Yet, spending $75 on a reunion ticket just seemed ludicrous. I texted Ginny upon my Googled discovery. I had to see if it was only me that thought $75 was outrageous. Thank goodness for BFF’s, she agreed. Instead we’re just going to pick a bar in our hometown and send FB invites to people we like that we graduated with. How much will this endeavor cost? That all depends on how much cheap beer we plan to drink. Problem solved!

    I like your idea much better than the reunion. I didn’t go to my 10 year high school reunion because they had a tour of the school, a BBQ and then went to a bar. BOOOORING. I agree……Coach is so worth the $75 and the reunion isn’t.

    That’s just crazy! I bet more people would show if someone just said, “HEY! CLASS OF BLAHBLAH! Let’s all meet here on this date at this time and just hang!”

  3. I was one of my class officers and along with two of the other girls, tried to plan our 10 year reunion last year. People were such aholes about it, we were like, you know what? We don’t owe you a thing! And guess what? We had no 10 year reunion. Boom.

    I see who I want to see and who needs to waste money on a party that everyone complains about going to, so buy a new pair of shoes with that $75, I certainly would 😉

    I feel like high school reunions are far less exciting then they were in the pre-internet days. I already know who got fat, who popped out 4 kids in 3 years and who turned into radically awesome human beings, thanks to my friend Facebook. Also, yeah – $75 to spend time with people you don’t want to hang out with? Meh. Not worth it.

  6. My high school, for whatever reason, does a five year reunion. Like, what am I going to say? “Yeah, totes pulled a Christian Grey and am, like, a kazillionaire at the tender age of 22.” Please. I’m broke, have no job prospects of being rich in the unforeseeable future, and am still getting financial support from my parents. I’VE ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH. Sigh. (P.S.: I haven’t actually read the 50 Shades of Grey books, but downloaded a sample of the first book before I knew what they were all about, and that is how I was able to make that reference. Just so we’re clear.)
