I agree Lainie...

It's funny how time changes everything. When you're in high school, your world is so small and you think that things will always be the same. I remember my English teacher telling us in my senior year, "Leave the town you graduate in for at least a year. You need to leave in order to grow. If you don't leave, more likely than not, you'll be stuck in the high school mentality. You know who those people are. Go to any high school football game. You see them in the stands. The old high school quarterback stuff into his 1952 Letterman jacket, yelling at the coaches, screaming at the players, because 'back in my day, we would have had that.'" His head cheerleader girlfriend by his side, also squeezed into her cheerleader outfit, with too much makeup on, screaming her support.

It was quite the visual that stuck with me. While it wasn't true for everyone, when I went back to my 20 year reunion, it was true for many of those I went to high school with. Not all, for sure, but many.

Lainie, that is to bad, but Rocky was worth it. He is so good to you now.

I had one, but I had to sell it for extra money when Rocky was little.

I bought mine when I was in high school. The I ended up selling it with some other scrap gold and took Oscar and the boys to go see "Wicked". Much more memorable than my high school ring!!!

Yes, and sometimes I wear it. And unlike nowadays, my entire class had identical rings.

I never had a high school ring. Mom wouldn't let me get one.

Do you still have your high school ring?

No, it was missing from my jewelry box and I don't know who took it.
