Almost 20 year reunion
She looked just like she did on our graduation day. She was the Salutatorian, who make her speech before mine. Now she is a mother of two.
The last time I saw her was the summer of our graduation. Despite the letters, cards, and emails, we still have almost 20 years of catching up to do.
How our lives have diverged since high school. She went to a male-dominated private college in Texas, before getting tired of all the men asking her out. Midway through, she transferred to a state university where she met her husband. They worked and travelled to exotic locations for ten years before settling down to have children. Now she exchanges her math tutoring for babysitting.
She is a pillar of stability and good family life.
