High School Reunion

After seven years it was the wedding reception of my high school classmate, Anandraj that arranged for our reunion. None of the girls and only 8 of the 11 guys turned up.

We tried some strange things like standing in our old attendance order while waiting to greet the groom, recalling atleast one incident where the other person got caught in the class etc.

We broke our heads another half an hour. But couldn't find that elusive 18th girl. Nevertheless it was great fun in identifying those names and more importantly the different ways in which we guys had remembered the girls who studied in our class was very interesting. The reunion ended at 10.00pm with we guys exchanging our mobile numbers with each other and asking them to keep in touch.
