High School Musical- Class of 1988


Yes darlings I am OLD. O-L-D. How else can I explain that I am attending my 20th high school reunion? How in the world was it twenty years ago!!??

Was it that long ago that I, the Mrs, was a Miss? Wearing Silver City Pink lip stick, my cool Levis with holes in the knees, and my Ton Sur Ton jacket? If only I could click my red Mia flats and go back to those days. it was a hoot I tell ya.

I was not a great student, but I didn't try hard enough most of the time. I had a boyfriend named Peter who adored me, and a group of friends that were "cool". I played Lacrosse and, hung out at the local deli at lunch with my girlfriends. I never ate cafeteria food once. Never have, never will. I drove around in my navy Honda accord thinking life was fantastic.

There were hard times, my parents divorce, break ups, friendships that went sour...but all in all, I had a blast.

So here I am, still loving Culture Club, the Thompson Twins and Howard Jones. I am heading east for my twentieth, funniest thing is it was me who planned it. I wasn't in the Student Government, a cheerleader, head of the Math Club, or valedictorian. Just a girl who had fun in high school and wants to see everyone again and was sick of waiting for someone else to plan it!!

I am not worried about being the thinnest (hello, I'm pregnant!), the cutest, the one who's done the best in life...I am just grateful and happy to relive some of those days and thanks to Sirius Satelite Radios all eighties station I will be rockin' with my high school girls and singing.

When I get back I'll fill you in on all the gossip. Hey, it's still high school!

Have a great time! It's my experience that the girls will all look fabulous and the guys, less so.

I'll be sporting a newborn at my 25th next summer - ack!

Love love love the sirius 80's station First Wave!! Don't forget about Duran Duran!!
Have fun at your reunion!

Kiki said...

So funny that we graduated the same year...the 80's were so much fun although my own personal style was terribly underdeveloped during that time and I can barely stand to look at pics of myself looking so awkward!!!

I know you'll have a blast, stay away from tight cuff jeans....no matter what anyone says that is one trend that should not reappear!!!

Lauren said...

I hope you have a great time at your reunion! It's so much fun to catch up and see what everyone is doing now.

Caffeine Court said...

My 20th reunion was so much fun! I had just given birth so I was lactating like crazy! Everyone was impressed with the size of my breasts!!

Europafox said...

OMG Ton sur Ton - how could I forget!!! I was also a fan of 'Chipie' -don't know if you had that in the states or not! Cool Photo!
