my bad girl moment as the other woman

the other woman I was.jpg

So I went to a high school reunion last week and it was THE WEIRDEST FEELING ON EARTH

Like a time warp

but there were also some laughs
It actually was for the year ahead of me but I was included because I was pals with many in that year.
I always feel like I have not changed a bit.
Hey! Stop laughing.
So if I haven’t changed a bit why did a fair number not recognize me at all?
True, I was  a very dark brunette in those years. But still.
Anyway just when I was feeling a little invisible wondering hey- was I completely uninteresting at that time of my life or have I aged that much- a guy comes up to me and  says “hi” and tells me my name comes up all the time with he and his best friend.
I feel a little sheepish because I do remember “necking” (remember that word?My girls find it hysterical) madly and frequently with his best friend even though best friend had a girlfriend. BOO! Now while I have never been the “other woman” since then, I don’t love that I ever was.
I sorta couldn’t help myself.
Then his best friend comes up and says – hey- do you remember sitting beside me in Home Economics class ? He says the  conversation went like this-
“Nancy, I like you”
“I like you too”
“NO, Nancy I really like you.”
“I really like you too”
“No I mean I really really really like you”
Now I am getting bored with the conversation.
“Ok, then come to my house after dark”
WHAT?
Ok, I don’t remember ever saying that.  Although to be honest I can imagine it. But I thought I got all my CHUTZPAH after 40. Good for me!
He then tells me he and his best friend brought a ladder and tried to break into my bedroom window late that night.
I love this stuff. I have never grown away from a love of these grand gestures
It just goes to show that
a) we dont regret what we did just what we didn’t do
b) my dad was completely hard of hearing even then.

    Reunions are truly the most bizzare event I have experienced in my life.
    Time folded in half. You get to meet your teenage self.
    Hillarity sprinkled with a bit of anxiety and smothered in revelations.
    People who skip their reunion because they didn’t lose the weight they planned or their thinning hair was freaking them out, really miss out.
    Grand post Nancy, brava,
