Nice to meet you all over again

Recently reacquainted with an old schoolmate and crush-target I watch his face in amazement. Sometimes it seems the thirteen year old boy opens his mouth and a man tumbles out. The creases around his eyes fascinate me with a tenderness my own will never elicit. His chest hair nearly made me giggle.
What a wonder it is you all grown up sporting that beard!

I recently ran into a couple that I hadn't seen in about 10 years, at a mutual friend's wedding. They looked so GROWN UP, and now have kids of their own, which was freaky -- one kid looked like the husband, and the other like the wife.

I really don't want to go to my high school reunion (20 years next summer) except I'd love to be a fly on the wall and see how people have changed!

My mom attended her fortieth this September just passed and is still rolling in aftershocks of amazement.
I wonder if you will attend your 20th reunion and what your experience will be.
