Frozen in Time

Class reunions are always enlightening, and one thing is obvious after 20 years - people change. Yeah! Oh, people remember me as being 210 pounds at about 5'9". I was like the Goodyear blimp then. And they freeze me in their minds as being the fat guy, you know? I'm sort of a fat memory in their mind. Well, I'm happy to say that I don't weight nearly that and I haven't been that heavy for a long time, and so, you know you go to the reunion and they're surprised to find 50 pounds less of you. I'm delighted that they do.

Of course, and then there are those changes that aren't as positive. You find that athletic hunk of high school has gone to seed, or that beautiful bombshell. Or that great head of hair is now just a great head. But it's often a pleasant surprise to see how people have grown in positive ways. People do change, and if we're not careful we'll still be thinking of them as they were - not as they are.
