We last reunited 5 years ago. My classmates from Medical School got together again a couple of nights ago to celebrate our 25th year post-graduation.
It was a good turn out: about 2/3 of the class showed up. I think I did pretty well in recognizing people... better than 5 years ago anyway! We've become older/greyer/fatter/slimmer/aesthetically enhanced/more wrinkled. But when I say hello and chat, I see the same people I went to school with. Personalities remain the same despite the additional prefixes and suffixes in their names.
Two have passed on, reminding us to seize the day. We saw a slideshow comprising of old photos from our days as students, and photos of us now, with our families; so happy to see the smiling faces of my peers and their loved ones.
Our class may not have been the most distinguished nor the most intellectual, and it certainly has had its share of oddballs, and infamy. But we are certainly an interesting lot.
Here's to 25 more years!
