I’m at my wife’s 30th HS reunion. About 10% of the class is attending and I am impressed with how good almost everyone looks (though I still think no one is outdoing us). At my own reunion last year, it was different, most people had either let themselves go or been hit hard by aging or ailments, and I had felt bad about that. But my reunion was better attended, more like 20% of my class. I guess the people who look best (relative to themselves at age 18) are most likely to come, so this may be a selection effect. I also observe a strikingly large blonde contingent, and they all happen to be female. And a lot more men than women have grey hair. What a coincidence!
I’m not judging — I admit to touching up my own hair last night to get rid of some gray streaks. Maybe it just shows that women are more likely to be vain than men are. Anyway I always enjoy the chance to dress up since I look good in suits. Just as I wrote that sentence a woman I didn’t know asked me to dance — no lie.
