The Countdown Begins
[INSERT PANIC HERE]
Now all I can think of is how in high school, all I could think about was my 10 year high school reunion. I literally remember thinking at graduation how the next time I might see most of my classmates would be at the reunion. And since the glorious movie, Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion, actually came out when I was in high school, I've been long anticipating this moment in time.
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm sure I haven't changed a lot. I pretty much look about the same.
This picture was taken of my friend Erica and I almost 10 years ago on my 18th birthday:
And this one was taken of the two of us last year (Erica, I'm making you my date. Hope you're excited for the reunion!):
Basically, I think I might need to put myself on a better diet. Eat a little bit less for the next five months.
Romy: I've been killing myself for eight days and I gained a pound.
Michele: That's impossible. Did you deduct sixteen pounds for your shoes?
My Red, White and Blue Body Challenge has deducted a total of three lbs. from my body. That's it. I'd like to lose about 20 more. I'd like to be a little bit impressive. Wear something sexy. Show off a bit.
At least I won't have to lie about what I've been up to for the past ten years.
Romy: Michele? Now that I'm looking at this, our lives don't seem as impressive as I thought.
Michele: They don't?
Romy: Well, do you think it's impressive that we're still single, and we've been living together for ten years, and I'm a cashier and you're unemployed?
Michele: Not super-impressive.
In the last ten years I've earned three degrees, become a fashion designer, managed to pay all my bills on time every month, learned to cook, bake and clean, and have recently become quite an international business woman. Oh, and I have an insanely hot and successful boyfriend.
Romy: Do you have some sort of business woman special?
Truck Stop Waitress: Come again?
Romy: Well, we're business women.
Michele: From LA.
Romy: And you know how some places have like a lunch special?
Michele: For business women...
Truck Stop Waitress: We don't have anything like that.
Romy: Okay...we'll take 2 burgers, fries, and medium cokes cause were in a hurry.
Michele: We're due in Tucson later... some business thing, you know.
Truck Stop Waitress: What kind of business you all in?
[Romy and Michele give a long pause]
Not bad. Maybe I don't have much to worry about after all.
I'm curious, Are you going to your high school reunion? Did you go? Did you skip it? What are your thoughts on reunions in general?
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the gym. Promise I won't forget to deduct sixteen lbs. for my shoes.
