The Brat

I was a bratty little sister. Whenever my sister, who's 4 years old than me, would bring friends over, I would be totally obnoxious, never leaving them alone. Especially if there were guys there. Oh how I would prance around and try to get their attention. Despite that, my sister was very cool with me. So when she got the invite to a reunion of the old crowd, she totally let me tag along. Just like the old days.

There were some people I had known only by reputation. And there were some people I wouldn't have recognized in a million years. But there were many familiar faces it was great to see, and hang out with again. This time though, I tried to keep my prancing to a minimum. It was kinda a kick for me, many of these people hadn't seen me in years and years and well, I'm all grown up now.

Out of all the people there, there was one person whom I was really glad to see. It was the brother of Frank, one of my 4 loves. I hadn't seen Joe since Frankie's wake nine years ago. It was good to see him and see that he's doing well.

A few observations:

Many of these people are married to their junior high & high school sweethearts. Which blows my mind to think that they've been with the same person since they were teenagers. On so many different levels, I have a hard time grasping that concept. I've gone through so many changes in my life, re-invented myself on some many occaisions, I wonder how do these couples manage to change, grow and stay together? I'm not the same person I was at 18, how could I be with the same person?

Quite a few of the couples were high school sweethearts, went their separate ways, and now have gotten back together. That I could deal with. OK, so I'm a sucker for a happy ending.
