Reunion Crashers - Part 3

After last night's class reunion, I have an idea that would surely enhance people's lives. Everyone, at all times, should wear name tags.

Heaven knows how many people I grew up with or worked with that I come across on a day-to-day basis that I'm just not recognizing. There were some people I spoke with last night that I would have recognized in a heartbeat if I happened upon them in the grocery store but there were others that I wouldn't have recognized in a million years if I passed them on the street.

I found out last night that a guy I graduated with lives in the same very small town in Arkansas as my brother. They probably cross paths all the time and don't even know they grew up in the same town in Southeast Texas. I find that horribly sad.

That is a great idea. I had a recent post about forgetting names, too. Why does everyone else remember mine?

I found you on BE. I was reading your profile and I have to tell you, if you're still looking for the perfect margarita, you have to try a hpnotiq margarita. Trust me. They're the best!

Indj - Thanks!

Comfort Addict - I remember reading that. It's so true.

Heatheranne - I'm going to look that up!

I see people from High School sometimes and say to my wife:

I went to school with her/him! Oh my god, He/She looks like SH*t, what have they been doing with themselves??!! Then I see them look over their shoulders whispering to their spouses. :0
