Erin here. I’m
self-conscious and nervous excited to see you in a few weeks for our high school reunion. During the past twenty years I have been a human diorama of someone who did not ‘peak too soon.’
Over the years I have grown wrinklier and larger. I take less shit. Given the choice of being tighter or taking less shit, I’d rather take less shit.
I’m grateful for each of us who are healthy and still here. Almost everything I cared about in high school didn’t really matter. It’s a privilege to age.
One thought on “An Open Letter In Advance Of My 20-Year High School Reunion”
I agree. With the exception of some quirks that have gotten worse–almost but not quite all involving my incompetence with numbers–I wish I’d been this person when I was young.
