The (Dreaded) Grosse Point Blank Moment

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

I knew it would be coming this year, but not until I actually received the invite did it materialize.  Yes, today I received my 20th high school anniversary notification.  

I have mixed feelings about it.  Has it REALLY been 20 years? It feels sometimes just like yesterday.

Will I go?  Probably not – too many other things going on in my life right now (like, the fact that I’m STILL in school and have summer school).  But it is definitely a wake up call…as in, “hello, this is your life calling–what have you been doing with yourself for the past 20 years? We’re waiting for a good story or two…p.s. you are that much closer to the end…so get on with living if you’ve been a slacker!”

You can never really go home…as Mr. Cusak so eloquently states in the movie…but you can shop there.
