High School Reunions. Any Good Stories?

    I received my invitation yesterday for my 15 year high school reunion. I will not be going as it is being held on Thanksgiving weekend and we are tied up doing family stuff. I never made my 10 year reunion as my invitation showed up two days before the reunion.

    However, I did make my five year reunion and what excitement that was. No one had changed, except the person who thought he was the school stud was now fat and bald and I found out a few of my classmates were in prison for being drug dealers.

    Does anyone have any good stories from their reunions? Our five year reunion was actually pretty ugly due to an open bar. Two of us grew up with the bar manager and once we got him liquored up he switched the cash bar to an open bar. It was all about free liquor from that point forward. He ended up closing the bar early because he was too drunk to run the place and did not appreciate us helping ourselves behind the bar.

    I had the same shit happen to me in 2000 for our tenth. I didn't go, of course. I had other priorities. I did send my regards with a photo - of me and the 8 pointer I shot on the day before the reunion started. He was a pretty one.

    My 30th reunion is next year, but being in Hawaii will make it difficult to make it back to Austintown. Also missed the 20th by being in Okinawa and the 25th by being here. Oh well, probably wouldn't recognize anyone anyways... :biggrin:

    My 20th is next summer- man, that makes me feel old....

    I went to the 10th, and it wasn't really that exciting. The only people I care about talking to I was still hanging out with anyway. The only good thing about it was seeing all of the assholes who thought they were hot shit in high school, and finding out that their lives suck now.

    5 yr is a bullshit reunion... everybody bullshitting about how they're all on tract to run the world...

    10 yr is a bit of a reality check because folks have started families...

    15 yr starts the fun stuff.. cuz this is where the stories go on all night... many will be about raising kids and funny experiences.. most of the attendees will be past the stage of having to fill it up with bullshit... altho there's still a couple who are full of themselves...

    You have to go... it'll be a blast... you'll spend lots of time talking to male buds about how that gal who was soooo hot in HS is now a 200 lb bon-bon vacuum.. or "no friggin way is that .... she was a dog" ... and how the sports studs of your day are fat or bald...

    HBO used to have this series about a guy who runs a porn business.. and they filmed him at his reunion... that was funny... no one believed him when he said "I now go by the name Seymore Butts".. "I produce porno flicks primarily about anal sex and girls that squirt".. guys were all over him asking questions and laughing... and he was hittin on the girls asking if they were interested in being actresses for his movies...

    You could go that route and see how many fish bite... then laugh like hell...

    No shit. Also, how those who were luke-warm friends in high schools become your best buds now. Case in point, in July of 2002 I passed through Youngstown for a few days after visiting my brother in NYC. I went by my house in Austintown to see how it looked 27 years after I moved out of it. I decided to stop by my classmate Jim's house a few doors down to see if his parents still lived there. Well, Jim's dad had long passed but his mom was still there. When she answered the door she had no clue who I was until I told her. You should've seen her mouth drop, as I was about 70 pounds heavier (mostly good weight...I was so skinny in HS than I looked like a white Ethiopian) and a few inches taller. Anyways, we chatted for a bit and she gave me Jim's cell phone number. When I called him, he sounded like I was his long-lost brother, although we weren't really close friends in HS. He was going to have to work late that night, but agreed to meet me for breakfast near my motel the next day. Man, when he showed up, I couldn't recognize him until he got close. He literally had gained over 100 pounds. He also was having to do two jobs...he wasn't exactly floundering financially, but one job wasn't enough to maintain what they had before (plus he had two kids in college and one getting ready to go to college at the time). But what really blew my mind is the fact that he ended up marrying the girl I took to the senior prom. Goofy shit happens while you're away...

    Love the deer picture idea.
    Biggest buck I ever saw in Ohio was hit by a farmers truck, he had it mounted.
    We got three good ones last year.

    We had a five year reunion and that was the only one I attended.
    I had attended the wedding of a girl I went to school with right after college graduation. I caught her garter. At the 5 year reunion she was divorced and we hooked up. I wrote a rather unusual story in a RR thread about our relationship.

    Like many here I have left Ohio and only go back a few times a year. I only keep in touch with a few close friends. Most of our exchanges are via email today.

    Oh yeah I was a 6' 4" 185 lb bean pole when I graduated. When I first went back I was up to a solid 225. Today it is a fair 250. People recognize me but I have a hard time with some of them.

    My friends tell me they are not going either. Of course, they all still live within 30 minutes of the old stomping grounds and my guess is half of them will end up going. My best friend was kind enough to tell me he wasn't going to go, but now that I am not he is planning on attending. Gotta love smartasses.

    The night before my 5 year reunion I was out at the bars with some of my high school friends. We ran into a girl we went to school with. I never really cared for her in high school as she thought she was better than everyone. Not stuck up, she just thought she was superior.

    She was being all buddy-buddy with me at the bar when I told her I was still in school. She thought we had some bond because we both still had one more year of school before we had our degrees. When she finally went away one of my friends said to me that he knew she was still in undergrad and why didn't I tell her I had one year of grad school left. It just wasn't important.

    at my ten.....the girl that knew i liked her all through high school....but thought she was better than me...showed up...

    now i was 5-8 155 when i graduated from high school....when she saw me again i was 6-0 238 with a matt keller type body....i competed in duathlons and triathlons despite the muscle weight...

    needless to say....herself and some of her friends were still single and you could tell that they were not happy over the course life had led them down...

    long story short....i ended up having sex with her that night....to exorcise demons....but lets say where my load ended when i pulled out was exactly where brittany had it in another thread a couple of days back....

    the difference is this girl was livid.....she wouldnt wear it in public like brittany....

    like i knew it would shoot that far....chicks think we have aim/control over where it goes......

    OKay BP. My high school class was contacted by the castin director for the show High School Reunion on TVLand.

    We are apparently now a finalist to be the featured reunion on the show. Has anyone watched this show? Any idea what goes on?

    I had a phone interview with the casting director Tuesday afternoon. She's looking for juicy story lines, scandals, and such that would be fun to exploit on the show.

    What say you BP? Should the Scooter pursue this?

    Yes. Regale them with stories of cocaine and sluts and you're a shoe-in.

    Ha! I've got two years before the 50th. Our class, 1961, was invited to a lunch and school tour with the class of 59. I thought I was visiting the geriatric ward at the Last Stop Hospital. These next two years must be the ones that get you.
