Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, October 10, 2021

This weekend is my give-or-take 10-year college reunion. It’s “give-or-take” because I actually graduated from Eckerd in 1993, so it’s eleven years; but because of some cockamanie “clustering” system the alumni association uses, it’s anyone’s guess as to when they actually get around to a particular class. In fact, I believe my class was pretty much overlooked for this year until a few people complained, at which point we were included after the fact.

Is that a negative enough intro?

I haven’t registered for anything. I live about 15 minutes away from campus, so it’s not a big deal for me to just drop in. And I would absolutely love to meet up with some classmates who I haven’t seen since graduation. Even others, with whom I’ve been in sporadic contact over the years, will be here. It would be great to get together over drinks or dinner or something.

Unfortunately, the timing’s not great for me. This is the thick of my busy season at work, so I just haven’t had much time or energy to devote to this (along with several other things). I can certainly get away for some meet-and-greets, but fishing trips and other extended forays are out of the question.

If nothing else, I’ll hit an informal reunion get-together at Woody’s Waterfront on St. Pete Beach, this Thursday at 6PM (if any alum are reading, consider this your invitation). That’s about the right kind of atmosphere: Right on the water, knocking back a few, and casually catching up.
