Overview

A class reunion is a meeting of former classmates, typically organized at or near their former school by one of the class on or around an anniversary of their graduation. Former teachers may be invited as well. They reminisce about their school days and bring each other up to date on what has happened to each of them since they went their separate ways.

In film and literature, especially comedy, crime novels, thrillers and psychological suspense novels, class reunions have been a frequent device used to show the eruption of emotions such as shame, hatred or guilt within individual characters who, suddenly faced again with their own youth, become aware of the fact that they have been unable to cope with their past. In many cases, those who used to be bullied, humiliated or in any other way mistreated by their teachers and/or classmates believe that now their chance has come to take revenge on their former torturers. Often in fiction, participants nostalgically reminisce about their old school days, fondly remember their school pranks. Alumni are quite often concerned about how their lives have turned out when compared with the lives of their former classmates, and will sometimes feel pressured enough to go to great lengths to concoct stories about their fruitful careers, personal accomplishments and relationships with others.

Another staple of this kind of fiction is former classmates taking up with their old flame again, either because they have changed to their advantage and developed into an admirable adult or precisely for the opposite reason—because they have not changed at all in a fleeting world.

Tease:

After high school most students grow up and put the experience behind them. This is a story of a couple of individuals that did not.

Meet the Author

My name is William Guy Thilgen Jr. (Billl) I am a 64 year young retired former native of St. Paul, Minnesota commonly known as the Twin Cities. Now living in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico. I am the middle child of seven, with three older half-sisters, two younger brothers and a baby sister.

Prior to my retirement, I followed in my grandfather's footsteps as a professional truck driver. A career that allowed me to see parts of the country, taste various foods and to partake in a variety of adventures whenever I happen across them. During those years I considered myself to be a professional tourist.

I attributes my imagination and story-telling ability to the fact that, like most children during my youth, I grew up in a large family in a small house with no room to play indoors. Most children of that era grew up playing outdoors. My friends and I would spend hours and hours finding things to do, and on occasion making up our own adventures.

As I aged I came to view life as series of adventures. It was on one such adventure in the winter of 1994.

Then I met Patte!

There was an era (before the electronic age) when people would sit and read. You could buy a book for as little as one cent that's 1/100th of a dollar. They were know as “Penny Books”. Well that era is gone and inflation is here to stay. It's is ironic, but the price of this book is still only one cent except it's on the other side of the dollar; it's 1/100th less.

Nook has a return policy, what do you have to loose?
