And then this happened.
Primo and I went to the same college. Our class reunion is coming up. We are going to Houston to see all of our friends and it will be fabulous.
But - I let myself get talked into working on the fundraising committee.
What this means is I have asked people for money.
What is crummy about it is I have asked them for money for a cause I don't really believe in - the president of our college is very highly paid (overpaid, if you ask me) and the college itself has a huge endowment.
The only reason I care and the reason I gave to contribute was that alumni giving rates affect the college rankings.
I still work. I still have my college name on my resume. I need that name to be respected. So I have a dog in the fight of college rankings.
But I asked my friends to give ten bucks, just to get the rate up. The college is not poor.
The woman - a friend of mine - who is chairing the committee (she is also an in-house attorney for a big company, volunteers on a ton of boards, is the mayor of her township, and has four year old twins - she is AMAZING) asked me to send one more email. The reunion is next week - she wants to do one more push.
I had been emailing just ten people I had picked from the list.
She sent me a list of my entire dorm.
I sent the email - and noticed the last name on the list - the wife of my college boyfriend.
As in, my college boyfriend married one of my college roommates.
I have not spoken to either of them for years.
That was bizarre.
Not sure what to think.
