My ten year high school reunion is coming up in a couple of weeks. I’ve been trolling MySpace to find classmates and do a little reconnecting before the party. I figure I can go in cold or I can go in having talked to some folks. I’m going with talking to folks, if I can. I forgot one thing, though.
I go by Robert now. But before I went to college, I was known as Robbie. Folks I went to high school with only know me as Robbie. I don’t think of myself as a Robbie and most of my friends probably don’t either. It just doesn’t fit my personality. But I’ll be going to a place where I’m likely to be called nothing but Robbie for a few hours.
That’ll be weird.
