Out of the blue

September 6, 2007 · 4 comments

I’ve been trying to get some things changed around with a couple of companies at work – primarily my credit card terminals and such – so my phone at home has been ringing off the hook because they need this information or that, plus we get those solicitation calls all the time as well. So, the phone keeps ringing and ringing.  Imagine my surprise (shock, amazement) to pick up the phone and hear a voice from the past!!

A guy I knew from high school called on a mission to find a picture of some friends that they thought I might have. I was so surprised (a) that anyone knew how to find me, (b) that he remembered me at all, and (c) the silly premise of the call that I couldn’t stop grinning.

See, I hung around with a lot of different groups of people in high school, but not really ever the popular group. Though I did know them and they me.  I dated this guy’s friend for awhile, but really knew him more in passing than anything.  And hearing his voice? It was like I just heard it yesterday.  It’s funny how 5, 10, uh…16 years can pass in the blink of an eye.  Has it really been that long since I was in high school? My life is so different now that I can’t even fathom it.  Of course, it got me to thinking about my high school days and I briefly wondered how different (if at all) I would be today if I had been different in high school.  More involved.  More precisely, more involved with my own class instead of the one ahead of us.

Alas, it matters not, but sometimes it’s nice to reminisce.  And wonder.

And sometimes, it’s just nice to be remembered.

Especially as I was…

Dawn Hot.  (Yep, that was my nickname – about a gazillion pounds ago and four gazillion years.)
