Dredging back up the topic of marrying high school sweethearts, it came to my attention today that a high school classmate, Karen, married her high school boyfriend, or if they weren't dating then they at least knew each other, making her the second person I know of who married a HS sweetheart. There were about 530 people in our graduating class and I have no doubt there are more couples who tied the knot I'm not aware of. Draw whatever conclusions you wish. Just thought I'd toss it out there for whatever conversational value it might have.

If you think Millborough's a small world, try this on for size. I went to nursery school with Karen and her younger sister. The other classmate I know of who married her HS sweetheart, he went to the same nursery school as Karen and me. Eight years ago, I worked for a time with one of my former daycare teachers at Strong Museum of Play. It took some getting used to, having an adult-type friendly relationship with a woman who was fully mature when you were barely out of diapers. Only slightly less jarring than having adult conversation with an old teacher and calling her by her first name. ;) I'd love to reconnect with a few others I go waaaaaaaaaaay back with so I need to get my butt in gear and do it.
