Last month I stayed with an old grammar school classmate while on a road trip. Rachel moved out of state after 8th grade graduation but thanks to the magic of social media and technology, we've reconnected in recent years. To the point where it makes perfect sense I'd stay with her family for a night.
She pulled out old photo albums and we laughed over hairstyles and outfits. God bless the 80s and 90s. We looked at class pictures and exclaimed names we hadn't thought about in a decade or two. Where were they now? What ever happened to them? Did they leave after 4th grade or was it 6th? Do you remember when...?
For my part, I try not to think about the grammar school where I spent 9 years.
