If Susie leaves Slidell High at 8PM on May 22, 1982, how long will it take her to figure out when her 25th reunion is?
Repeat after me…
82 + 10 = 1992
82 + 20 = 2002
82 + 25 = 2007
No, it’s not “new math.”
Not long after the ten year reunion, I ran into “Susie.” She was conspicuously absent from the event. When I mentioned that we missed her at our little soiree, her response was, “Well, I would have come but I didn’t know anything about it.”
Huh? Can ya add?
Be damned, if it didn’t happen again right after the twenty year reunion! Maybe Susie rode the little orange bus to school!
Look, we all took the same math in high school. We all can count! Even if you live in Istanbul, you can still google “slidell high school,” get their phone number, call them and get the reunion lowdown.
Nevertheless, for Susie’s sake and any of our other classmates who find themselves to be “mathematically challenged,” I have sent reunion notices to every newspaper, television and radio station in our area, as well as any and all related websites (at least the ones that remain user-friendly) – which will take it global. Save sky writing it, I think we’ve covered our bases on press releases.
The Grand High Knick Knack 25R82 Reunion Committee (two chics & a guy & now a few other kind souls) are feverishly checking and cross-referencing email addys that we currently have for classmates, in an effort to at least try to reach as many of the class as we possibly can.
So, if any of you happen to run into “Susie” before the reunion, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, please clue her in on the reunion dates.
Should you run into her in the days following our reunion in July, feigning not knowing anything about it, please feel free to contact the RocknRoll Army, so that they can immediately take her to Gitmo for a little math repatriation – Tiger style!
