27. Probably not.

Beth. She was a year ahead of me in high school. We had the chorus in common, then over a summer she taught me field hockey. I sucked during my senior year while she excelled as a freshman on scholarship at CSSJ. We lost touch. We're now nominally in touch by Facebook, but with 30 years between then and now, it would be like strangers meeting. Not that I wouldn't at the chance.

But I think that if we had become an item during high school, even the summer after she graduated (which is what I innocently wished for (not exactly coming out to myself) before she left for San Jose State), it probably not would have lasted.

Edit: as sweet as my memories of Beth are, I would trade nothing for my marriage.

Pragmatism beats wistfulness. Still . . . <-- just so you'll know, Bethie.
