Sign of maturity or snobbishness?
This past weekend was Ken's 30-year high school reunion. I know I've mentioned our age difference before but in case you forgot, he's nearly 15 years old than me.
We had just begun dating a few months before his 20-year reunion so I knew some of his classmates from before and I remember having a great time!
Once again, I had a blast on Saturday night! Actually much more enjoyable than the get-together I had with a few of my own classmates last year 15 years after we graduated.
I seem to gel and fit in better with Ken's age group. I don't know if that's a sign of maturity or of snobbishness, possibly thinking I'm "beyond" my own classmates.
What I mean is that when my class got together some of them were sitting around gossiping about this one and that one, drinking like fish and cussing like sailors, actually making me feel uncomfortable and like we were still in high school in some aspects.
Some of Ken's classmates had a few drinks, obviously, but nobody was drunk beyond comprehension and some of the stories about old times and conversations had me in stitches. They made me feel like one of them even though, in all honesty, I'm just about young enough to be one of their own children and the kids Ken and I have are the same age as some of their grandchildren.
So I am being "uppity" or have I just matured more than those I grew up with in that small town?
