It's been 28 years . . . when will she get the hint?

I graduated from High School in 1978, and besides exchanging Holiday cards, I haven't kept in touch much with anyone from my graduating class of nearly a thousand people. Nevertheless, one gal from high school refuses to give up. I have seen her twice in 28 years - at my Ten Year Reunion, and one painful dinner a few years ago. We have nothing in common and all she talks about is people from high school that I don't even remember. So today, I get this email (btw - she sent me her new email address in July) - -

Hi Diane~

I haven't heard from you in ages so I just thought I'd send you a quick e-mail saying hi. How are things going? How's your family doing? I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I did. I love the extra time off. I have a new e-mail address. I changed jobs in July and I absolutely love my job here. I wish I had found it 15 years ago. Anyway I hope all is well with you and perhaps we can get together again one day soon.

Take care. Patty

My response - Hi Patty – things are good. Glad to hear you like your new job. Give my best to your Mom and brother. Diane

What I wanted to say - Patty - how can I miss you if you won't go away?

OMG you had a huge graduating class. If I remember correctly, mine was 272 or something.

Be nice to Patty... it's the holidays:)

joe - I know, but when I send her a holiday card, I'll get a nasty note back about how I just signed the card and didn't include a long note about what I have been up to!

That would be funny if she read your blog. She is a stalker!

Wow, I thought I had a large graduating class with 750 (and had my brother not married a girl a year older than him and in my class, I wouldn't be keeping up with any of 'em.) I didn't keep up with them, they didn't keep up with me, but somehow after several moves back and forth across the country, I got an invitation to my 30th reunion last summer and my sister-in-law who knows all the people from that class that still do everything and lives 2 miles from the school didn't get an invitation!

I hated high school! I probably won't go to my high school reunion. I don't want to be reminded of how lame it was by people I never really got along with.

I've repressed all memories of high school.

I smell a restraining order for Patty.

My graduating class was 64.

You have to give someone credit for persistance. At least she's harmless.

My graduating class was about 450, and some of my best friends are people I went to school with - about three of them. The rest I could care less about. I went to my 10 year reunion and was amazed how the cliques went right back together so quickly - like magnets!

My graduating class was about 300. I went to my 10 and 20 year reunions, but I think I'm done with those now. The last one wasn't as fun as the first one.

That said, I think it's hilarious that this woman doesn't get the hint!
