  1. I really should do this one since it would be my 30th reunion this summer, if I was choosin’ to go… I’ll have to think on it, though, because there’s one H.S. for grades 9-11 and a COMPLETELY different one for senior year…

    Can I see you as a nerd? No! Well, maybe… okay, YEAH!!! Next thing, we’ll be posting our graduation photos…
