I ran across a forum dedicated to one of the high schools I attended a looooooooong time ago. I spent my Senior year in California, but most of my high school years were spent in Munich, Germany. I would post on there to find out if anyone remembers me, but I know they won’t. I was so out of the loop I might as well have been in another galaxy. That’s ok, I don’t remember any of them, either.
It made me curious, though, about the only two names I could remember from high school. One was my first “boyfriend.” He lived in Heidelberg and we only saw each other a few times before he found someone cuter and closer. I think this is him. The name is right, and it’s an unusal one. I can’t remember what he looked like, and it’s been almost 30 years. I remember he was a budding computer geek and it looks like this Nathan Stong became some kind of computer guru, so it’s probably him.
The other one I remember was Todd Blood, who took me to my one and only dance (we spent most of the evening at the emergency room). We used to tease him because he planned on studying medicine and who wants to go to see Dr. Blood? Well, it looks like he made it. He’s an anesthesiologist in Utah.
I am sure neither of them remember me, and I would be ashamed to have them see how badly my life has turned out. One is getting awards for his work and the other is a doctor. No doubt they have loving spouses and cute kids. I live at home, have no family, a stuttering career and a few pets. Can you imagine how embarrassing it would be to go to a HS reunion? No thanks.
