I recently attended a *cough* 30th reunion. And it was great seeing so many familiar faces and chatting.
A former classmate of mine offered the obligatory “you haven’t changed since high school.”
I smiled graciously.
Then he tilted his head and, with furrowed scrutiny, said, “No. You REALLY haven’t changed since high school. It’s almost like you’re a vampire.”
We both exchanged nervous laughs. I’m thinking this might be the sweetest compliment/accusation I’ve ever heard.
Until I remembered what I looked like in high school.
Teenage me in 3 words: complete walking disaster.
If I were a vampire, I’d be the most awkward, near-sighted immortal to ever roam the earth.
