Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo....

I had one of those "Twilight Zone" moments a few minutes ago. I was invited to my 25th class reunion (2003 minus 1978...yeah, that's right) at Northwestern University. Now, I did attend Northwestern, and I did identify it as one of my schools on, but I never in a million years thought that I'd actually hear from anyone from NU, let alone be invited to a class reunion. As I recall, I left there on Academic Probation. In fact, I often tell the story that they called me into the office when they realized that I wasn't going to return for my junior year, and confirmed that I was leaving so that they could spare themselves the task of throwing me out.

I'll spare one and all the agony of my reminiscences of my college selection process ("John, you're going to Northwestern", "Yes, ma'am"), and of my misspent college years (where I paid a large sum of money to go drinking with the same guys that I'd grown up with), but what's really weird is that I've been thinking back on those days a lot recently, and there may be a story or two in all of it. Amazing where one finds inspiration, isn't it?
