I am headed to my 25th college reunion this week. Please don’t do the math.
I haven’t seen some of my old pals since we walked across the stage to receive our diplomas. So much has happened in our lives since then yet so much stays the same. I land on Friday and will head straight for the campus bar “Peggy’s” to meet the KKG gals.
It is going to be a great weekend.
Here is what was going on 25 years ago.
I was sporting a Swatch Watch
Spraying Sebastian Shpritz Forte all over my bi-level hair cut
Cindy Crawford was doing GAP ads
Michael Jackson was still cool and not creepy.
Fatal Attraction was the top grossing movie of the year.
Anna Wintour put out her first Vogue Cover.
Camp Beverly Hills Clothing was the Peak of Chic
Clara Peller was screaming “Where’s the Beef” for Wendy’s.
I would spend many an afternoon at the KKG house watching General Hospital (GH), eating Monster Cookies and nursing a hang over resulting from way too many wine coolers.
I wonder if they still have Bartles and James on the menu at Peggy’s?
I wonder if I’ll be dancing on the bar like I did in 1987.
I think there may be a good chance of it. I think I still have it in me.
