What happens when several high school cheerleaders get together 25 years after they graduate? They try to remember all their cheers of course!
This little cheer session happened Saturday night at my house. The tiny woman in the middle is Carmen, my BFF from high school. The lady on the end is my sister Rechelle and the guy that you see for just a moment is Eric.
Here’s the short version of a longer post that I should write: Eric was my next door neighbor, Carmen was my bff, Rechelle is my sister. We all lived in a neighborhood just on the outskirts of Goodland, Kansas. We grew up playing in a large pit dug by the highway department and hoping that Eric would invite us over to swim in his pool, which he did, but not nearly enough. He had the only pool in the neighborhood which forced us to always be nice to him even when he was a giant pain in the ass.. We all had a lot of adventures and tons of fun getting into mischief together. Carmen, Rechelle, and I had not seen Eric for 22 years. We decided that was long enough to be pissed about not letting us swim in his pool.
