You Can Never Go Home Again

I realized today, in glaring terms, how little I have left in common with the friends of my youth.

Today, I received an invitation to my 30th High School Reunion. Here is the announcement in its entirety.

Dear Classmates:

It is hard to believe that we are approaching our 30 year class reunion! We hope you are gearing up to participate in our celebration that is currently being planned. Our goal is to reunite friends and have a wonderful weekend. Please set aside July 30-31st, 2010 on your calendars. Below is a tentative outline of our plans.

Friday, July 30 -

“Cornhole At the Club”

Site: Bellefonte Country Club (Poolside)

Time: TBA

Dress: Informal

Features: Grilled hamburgers, hotdogs, games and swimming.

Saturday, July 31-

Golf Outing for the guys. Check the website for further details which are pending.

EVENING: Semi-formal Dinner/Dance

Time: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Social Hour/Appetizers

7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Dinner/Awards

9:00 p.m. to 12 midnight Dance (D.J. will be spinning tunes from 1975 - 1980)

When I saw that the Friday evening event was "Cornhole at the Club", I wondered just exactly what sort of reunion they were planning. Apparently, I'm a real asshole (no pun intended) for pointing out their unfortunate choice of words.
