I'm Old

I heard on the radio that Mike Schmidt is 61 today. And Shaun Cassidy is 52. I grew up with them being on TV constantly. I’m not as old as they are but hearing their ages this morning made me feel ancient.

I received an invitation to my class reunion last week. I’ve never been to one. They’re always held the day after Thanksgiving, I suppose because the theory is that people are back, visiting family so more will come. The problem is that I too visit then. Only I go see my great aunt that day so I’m always out of town.

Of course I don’t know if I’d go anyway. I haven’t seen the majority of these people since the year before we graduated. I started college a year early so I wasn’t there for senior year. I doubt I’d recognize most of them if I tripped over them in the street. I say that because other years I’ve ordered the picture and can’t usually identify more than one or two.

Generally I get a few emails telling me I need to come to the reunion. Why? I mean why wait until then? I’ve always been around, findable should anyone so desire. And no one bothers. But then neither do I.

Wow I'm feeling old now that I know Shaun Cassidy is 52. :)

I agree, why wait for the reunion? I'm not sure I'd remember most of the people from high school either.
