My husband and I went to the same high school. He was only a grade above me, so we have a lot of mutual friends. Years ago we agreed when reunion time came around there was no need or desire to go to both. He never received any info for a reunion last year, which makes the decision on whose to attend a little easier.
Earlier this week I got a Facebook event invite for my reunion! I was stoked. Then I looked at the info.
The venue is a bar. It’s not even in our town (which is very large with many many options) but a town that’s 45 mins north. The reunion is costing $60 for 3 hours of open bar and apps. After doing the math, I don’t think I can get my money’s worth in 3 hours. My husband certainly wouldn’t since he wouldn’t be having any apps. This would be a long and expensive taxi ride for those who drink. The one logical thing is that it is Thanksgiving weekend, a time where most people will be coming back here to spend time with family.
I’m not apprehensive about going, like all the movies portray people going to reunions. I didn’t hate anyone in high school; it was pretty fun! However, do I really want to spend $60 (technically $120 because I would make my husband go with me) to see you all? I’m not so sure about that.
For those who have had reunions before, is this expensive? Am I just over exaggerating? Will it kill me to wait 10 more years for something that’s better planned? Will I regret not going?
I am currently twiddling my thumbs watching the RSVP list.
