Okay, last night was meet your kids teachers for high school.  At the meet the teachers you are given your child’s schedule and you are suppose to go from class to class sitting in each class 10 minutes and then the bell rings and off you go to the next class passing everyone in the hall going up and down the stairs and into other buildings EVERYTHING they do all day long.  

Here is the really funny thing about that.  You are now 20 some years out of high school with all the parents who went to high school about the same time as you and now you are all passing each other in the halls and running into classes just like you did 20 some years ago... But everyone looks like they got hit with the awkward middle age stick!  When you start thinking about it at first you are a little freaked out and then you start to act like the high schooler you left behind at home.  

It is really funny because you can still tell who were the popular people, the nerds, the jocks (although they are getting harder to pick out) and the smart people...  The men are some of the funniest because they either have a pot belly or thinning hair while the ladies are so serious about getting to the proper class at the proper time.  Oh my gosh it was really funny!!  Of course I had to be sitting in front of the class clown (which happened to be my guy) who was throwing little paper notes at me...  

I thought I would include a picture of the awkward middle aged couple from this house (nice shot of the wrinkles)...  It is funny being this age...  Here’s to awkward days...
