20-Year Reunion


Oh, my. How did we get this old? Tomorrow is my 20-year high school reunion. I went to high school in the 80s - which explains the hair in the photo above. It was taken at my house before we went to the Electric Playground. {Nice name, huh?}

EP was a dance club in Northeast Philly for high school kids. My parents would usually drive us there in our van {they weren't called minivans then}, drop us off and pick us up at the end of the night. We would all pile into the back of the van and sit on the floor. We usually picked up a friend or two while at EP, and my parents would drive them home, too. I know what you're thinking - "Wow! Your parents were so nice to drive everyone home!" Yes, they were. But the reason for driving everyone home was to keep an eye on me. They didn't want me taking the bus home or getting a ride with someone they didn't know. I wonder if I'll be doing the same thing for Malayna in 12 years or so?

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night!

I graduated in 88 too but had to miss my reunion b/c I had a show. We used to go to a place called "Pulsations" (ew!) same idea as Electric Playground. We'd dance the night away to the Cure and Expose! Hope you have a great time!
