The Party Is Over

`

As I commence committing this virtual ink to the virtual parchment’s field of white, I presume that MY… strike that… THEIR two day duration, 50th class reunion had ended at the predesignated, Saturday night into Sunday morn, midnight hour; that (having slept off their hangovers) THEY, who had journeyed, from both near and far, are now (or soon will be) homeward bound; aloft in the unfriendly skies or grounded on the concrete and asphalt thoroughfares.

The operative word being “presume”; seeing how, tho invited, I had opted not to attend. How come?

Long Story Short… Such a decision was/is out of my ongoing deference towards the unpredictable nature of the still rampaging, multiple coronavirus variants, and, more to my main point, was/is totally consistent with my contention…

`

Not everyone is dying to relive their K thru 12 experience.

`

My intent had been to shun all “classmates” who had actively shunned me as well as the passive types who had “merely looked the other way.” Let’s cut to the chase. Sadistic bullies had mercilessly assaulted me (verbally and physically) from 4th thru 8th grades (inclusive) and had marginalized me thereafter. Hence, my Graduation Day, muttered under the breath, vow to never, ever stagger thru any of their Ground Zero-esque, class reunion rubble.

Short Story Somewhat Longer… the following clickable content will relate the rest of the story. For those with time constraints, I highly recommend Part 2…

Suffice to say, on this “morning after”… now morphing into the afternoon after… I find myself sufficiently curious; oddly awash with second guessing. I cannot help but wonder if, at any point of these weekend festivities, I’d have discovered…

  • Bygone tormentors who had finally grown up enough to behave in a more civil manner?
  • Any of my outcast compatriots scattered amongst the attendees?

All things considered… long sigh… case closed… no real regrets…

Be people Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!

HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:

Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
Stay Healthy!
