There are people in life that I love to see. These include people from my mission, people from Westminster College and a few close friends from high school.
However, there are a group of people I just loath. When I see them at the grocery store, I turn and hide. At a Jazz game, I pretend not to see them. When I am at Lagoon, I hop in a line and hide my head. The people of who I speak are people from high school.
During my high school days, I was far from what you might call popular. Many might call me a loser, but I mostly just stayed in the background and watched things from afar. I had my close knit group of about 10 friends and I really didn't need the social outlet that high school provides for so many. As a result, I didn't really socialize or become very acquainted with anyone outside of my social circle.
It seems that now I cannot go anywhere without seeing someone from high school, and they all want to talk to me. I am not sure why. In high school they could less about talking to me. Now they want to know what I do, how many kids I have, who I married, etc. The other day I saw kid from high school that was way too cool to talk to me. I tried to hide from him, but I could not escape. He told me how he lived in Draper and had a job at a law firm or something. (I wasn't really listening, I was just trying to figure out how to get out of the situation.) I thought it was interesting that he even knew my name, because I still can't remember his.
The great thing about seeing these people is that they are all almost always surprised that I married Cathi. Fortunately, she went to my high school and is still way out of my league. It is funny to see their face when I tell them I married her. They are almost always surprised. IN YOUR FACE HIGH SCHOOL LOSERS!
