My high school buds, twenty years after the fact!

S
Then: Pleasant, stoned expression
Now: Still looks baked
A
Then: Hated C because she stole P away
Now: Didn’t invite C to the reunion; still in love with P
P
Then: Sold me film canister full of speed senior year
Now: Swears that it was really Dexatrim; still not in love with A
B
Then: Played guitar, studied
Now: Became a Muslim; sense of humor submerged below surface of placid wisdom
S
Then: Charmingly bubbleheaded
Now: Changed name to another name that starts with S
N
Then: Goofy, gangly, bad skin

M
Then: Rumored to have had mature but inappropriate relationship with geology teacher
Now: Did not talk to me about group sex in suggestive manner
A
Then: Duuuuude!
Now: Duuuuude!
M
Then: Unnervingly matter-of-fact
Now: Exactly the same; divorced from “psycho bitch from hell”; John Denver glasses
J
Then: Nice, but never really had much to say to her
Now: Looks the same, still not much to say to each other
T
Then: My best friend; funny; loyal despite (or perhaps because of) my flagrantly immature behavior
Now: Is herself, only moreso; love her to death
J
Then: Charmingly befuddled
Now: Made N apologize to M for calling him “Lupus” in ninth grade
Me
Then: Either happy or suicidal; read pretentious books without understanding them
Now: Surprisingly happy, never suicidal; reading confined to take-out menus and TV schedule
