Have a Mini-Reunion

A school reunion can be a great time, seeing old friends and catching up.

It can also be hell, especially when the cliques restart their machinations.

And again, for an official reunion, you have to wait five or ten years or more.

So why let the "soc" run everything? Start your own reunion! You can just invite people you like!

This could be as simple as dinner at an old hangout, or a picnic in a park near your school (with your kids and your friends' kids, too, if you got 'em).

Or do it up! Formals, corsages, tuxes, limos; book a hotel conference room, hire a band. Why not?

It's up to you.

The main thing is to bring together the good people from high school or college, an old job, or the army. Or maybe your old roommates, or people you traveled with on a tour. Whoever!

I trained with nine people in a Japanese company. Seven of us were Tokyo-based, and got together for birthdays, climbing Mt. Fuji, and a farewell party for those who left at the end of the year. (Several of us stayed on.) It gave us "family" in a foreign land.

So re-unite often. You know what you might discover? These are the good old days. This is the best time of your life.

You’ll be happier.
