The clock is ticking! Can you believe it’s been 4 months since we all heard that there is going to be a 50th Reunion? The holidays are over, you’ve shelved your New Year’s resolutions, and the winter doldrums are upon you. What are you waiting for? Call up that high school friend, ask for time off at work, tell the spouse how lovely Rochester is in October, and make your reservations!
See you in October!
Steve: Hey, Chuck. What do you want to talk about today?
Chuck: Something that will get everyone in a nostalgic mood.
Steve: Yeah! Like why certain songs were more popular than others or what news events of the times are still important today.
Chuck: Don’t overthink this. Let’s talk about the Senior Prom.
Steve: That’s a great idea!
Chuck: (confident tone) Yeah. I know.
Steve: (pause) Pardon me, oh Great One.
Chuck: You are pardoned.
Both: (laughing hard)
Chuck: (smiling) The theme was “Here Comes The Sun”.
Steve: Really? The Junior Prom was “Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In”.
Chuck: We were in a rut.
Steve: Haha. Looks like it.
Chuck: I remember we had $1,500 to hire a band.
Steve: That’ a lot of money.
Chuck: I know. I said we should contact Blood, Sweat, and Tears to see if they’d play our prom.
Steve: I remember that!
Chuck: I don’t know if anyone tried to call them, but can you imagine how they’d react to playing a prom? For $1,500?
Steve: Haha. I bet we could get them cheap today! Minus David Clayton Thomas, of course.
Chuck: Hmm, I wonder if they’d play our reunion for $1,500?
Steve: You’re crazy.
Chuck: Why not?
Steve: Laurie Coulter Kalkman? Are you reading this?
Chuck: Who did play at our Senior Prom?
Steve: Damned if I know.
Chuck: You try my patience sometimes.
Steve: Better than all the time.
