Reunited, and it feels so good.
Highlights included: The best falafel sandwich in the whole entire world, and managing to fit in 2 visits in 3 days. French fries from a vending machine (not especially tasty, but ingenious!) at 3 am. Seeing people I'd lost touch with and being incredibly happy (and sometimes a bit jealous) with what they'd done since college. Once again sharing a dorm room with Joanna. Holding an impromptu hall party that became the pre-party of the night. Boxed pink wine and Malibu and Diet Coke. Waking up to the sound of Eric and Allen duct-taping the words "Voorhees 2" to my door (an inside joke that somehow I find hilarious, even though it's about my boobs). Seeing my ex-boyfriend for the first time in 3 years, and hearing him say, "I heard you on KEXP!" Sneaking into our class dance party in the cafeteria (yes, totally weird) through the back loading dock and kitchens (even though I'd already paid for my ticket). Having someone tell me, "I remember you - I used to think you were really cute" (ego boost! [but yes, I realize that he said, "used to"]). Finally being able to tell people I was doing something cool ("This fall I'm starting an MPH program in nutrition at UW!"). Having friends who want to take a cab to the supermarket at 5 am, only to turn around and go right back to campus when you discover the supermarket is closed (nothing in Rhode Island is open 24 hours). Walking in the commencement processional and tearing up to see a man back for his 75th reunion.
Lowlights: Realizing, sadly, that the next reunion couldn't possibly be this great, that I'm too old to stay out until 5:30 in the morning, and that I really really miss these people.
