    got a 10 year coming up (1st one for our graduating class) in a few years and i'm actually curious as to what everyone is doing. i think i'll even let an SF poll choose my outfit for the event if i'm still frequenting these forums then.

    i moved away for college and have only kept in touch with a handful of friends that actually are worth my time. i have a bunch of "friends" on facebook from my high school that i vaguely remember (some not at all) and it's kinda fun seeing where people are in their lives.

    some chicks got hot, but i'm guessing that they are the exception and that most did not and regressed or ballooned up since graduation. lots of my teammates from the baseball and basketball team did not leave the island (hawaii) and it's looking like their best days are past them.

    slap the "dr." tag in front of my name and maybe now i can bang that ex-girlfriend instead of settling for a handjob. i'll keep you posted whether $240K of education is worth something or not...



    You're not seriously, as a fucking dentist, going to drop the Dr. bomb at a highschool reunion, are you? I don't even think Peter Griffin would do that.

    I honestly would never go, even if I become the big shot artist I plan on becoming, I don't really see any point. 99% of them don't exist to me. Actually, we had our five year recently, and it was at some disgusting white trash bar in Bethesda called "Tommy Joe's." [​IMG]
    Digital Underground??? What are you, like 40 years old?
    I love that song.

    As Senior class pres, I have to plan the whole thing. I'm sure I'll go. My whole class got along pretty well, all 6 of us.

    I've 'grown' in to my features since high school. My chiseled, rugged jaw with a 9 o clock shadows is what gets the bitches hot.

    because it makes you sound like a douche. What are you going to do? "Oh Jill, remember me? " "Yes!! Johnny, I haven't seen you in so long!" "Excuse me Jill, but it's DR. Johnny now."

    We had a couple threads on dentists who walk around calling themselves Dr. Real doctors don't even call themselves that.

    Dude, I don't know about Hawaii, but at least on major cities on the east coast, doing that is like one step above wearing a Von Dutch hat wherever you go.

    It's not like he's a chiropractor, he's a dentist. He has a doctorate in a legitimate field. (Of course, an argument could be made that anyone with a law degree is a "Dr." as well.....)

    "Oh Jill, remember me? " "Yes!! Johnny, I haven't seen you in so long!" "Excuse me Jill, but it's DR. Johnny now."

    Which he then punctuates by producing one of those plaque farm picks from his pocket with a flourish.

    it'd be douche-y if i corrected someone and told them that they need to call me "Dr i'm a dentist and you better know it before i send the union of girls wearing ugg boots after you".

    i'd just say i'm a dentist. what's wrong with that?

    Dude, walk into any room full of educated people and pull that. He WILL be the laughing stock.

    Yeah, that's not bad. That's just not what I had envisioned in my mind.

    It would be grand to get several German doctorates and have Dr.Dr.Dr., etc. on your card.

    A lot of bitterness here, guys.

    A reunion is what you make of it. It can be a fun time or a real downer. The 10-year is usually the worst, as people are still trying to play the game they were in while in school. By the time 20 rolls around I think most have settled into their lives, one hopes somewhat satisfactorily. My 30 was really quite an enjoyable time.

    There was a knock-down-drag-out fist fight at my 10 year reunion, a pretty big drug bust, a stolen car and a block-long hit-and-run!

    Dress up. Put a smile on your face and go take in the show.
