Would You Ever Lie To Impress Your Classmates At A High School Reunion

High school reunions can either be exciting or filled with anxious anticipation and stress. If you look great, have a fantastic job, family, etc.. you've got nothing to worry about. You can go, be carefree and really enjoy your walk down memory lane.

However, what if you are the product of failure and lately you've been getting letters from Glamour Magazine apologizing for forgetting to place the black bar over your eyes after you have been on the pages of their "Fashion Don'ts" for the last three consecutive months? If that's you, you're probably going to want to add a little bit of jazz to your autobiography. But take caution.

Do you remember the movieRomy and Michelle's High School Reunion where one of the girls lies and claims that she invented the Post It note? Turns out she gets busted by the weird chick and is made to feel like an even bigger that's mortification.

My advice is to just be yourself, but we are all guilty of a little embellishment here and there to stroke our own egos. Looks like the old Peach Pit gang from Beverly Hills, 90210can't exaggerate even if they wanted to. Their lives are still so public. Damn they all look great though. I wonder why Brenda didn't show up?

no i have no reason to and it's pointless anyway. i still have some of my friends from elementary school through high school and they know the real me.

i've found a lot of my old classmates on facebook and it's always interesting to know what they're up to. people change in college and after HS, i know nobody is the same person. what's funny is i'm closer to some people i went to school with now than i ever was then (i never talked to some of them)! i don't understand the point of lying at a function like isn't a competition

I am still very good friends with the group of girls who started elementary school, we grew up together, we know each other's hits & misses, so no. I have no reasons to lie. ___________________________________________ ~~ Experience is one thing you can't get for nothing ~~

Most of the people I went to HS with were totally lame as people and the said thing is I have run into a few of them and they are the same after almost 20 years! Fortunately, I am on the list of people that cannot be found! I keep in touch with the people that I want to talk to and want in my life!

i wouldn't bother with a high school reunion. our class mascot should have been bong. but a college reunion i would love to go to. i keep in touch with a few people, who keep in touch with a few people, etc. i wouldn't feel the need to lie with any of them, about anything. we had so much fun together what would be the point?
