I Haven't Lost a Beat

On October 23, 2010, I had my 10 year high school reunion in San Jose, CA. Originally, the reunion was scheduled for September 11, 2010, but they ended up postponing it as they hoped it would allow them to sell more tickets. I'm not so sure if that plan worked as the organizers had hoped as it was a rather small gathering than hoped for the reunion, but those that were there did seem to have fun.

I was asked during the planning stages if I'd be interested in performing comedy at the reunion. I said "Sure, sounds like fun."

As you can tell from the photo below it wasn't the typical performance setting. I wasn't on a raised platform and microphone belonged the the DJ that was hired for the night. The DJ was a nice guy but when I did my routine I could hear myself echoing behind me. My classmates liked it enough - though they will remember this as the night the Giants advanced to the World Series and not the night that Wes performed at their reunion.

A fellow classmate took this photo.

It was surreal seeing some of the classmates that I hadn't seen in 10 years. Some people have had their lives change dramatically as many of them are now married, have children, etc. As for myself, I got a haircut the day before the reunion.

While some people changed, others didn't change as much.

At one point during the night, I even asked out the girl that I had a crush on back in high school. I was kindly turned down just like 10 years ago.

I haven't lost a beat.
