ANY QUESTIONS, ASK MATTY


50 What??????!!!!!!
by Goldie Pappas

Thirty minutes until lunch...Garfield’s french fries and a tall glass of TAB. That was yesterday. Yessiree, Bob. Yesterday! No kidding. I was a senior at Erasmus Hall High School, and it WAS yesterday.

Today I heard about the Reunion. Obviously, there had been some kind of error. Why would I be attending a 50th Class Reunion?!! Hell, I’m only...and then, I froze. For a split second, I had fallen into the muddle puddle. How old am I?! I broke into a cold sweat. I felt a little faint, and nauseous. I put on my reading glasses; to better see the computer monitor.

Class of 1967. They’re looking for me!! G-d help me!! Chills ran down my spine. No use in hiding under my desk; the air raid drills of the late 50’s, at PS 130.. were over. It’s time to figure out, how many years had passed, since I last walked through the corridors of EHHS, in my “buff & blue” Booster sweater and pleated blue skirt. The invite was definitely for me. There had been no mistake. TIME, the kidnapper of Youth had found me, 50 years later, sitting at my computer, in my Long Island home.

“What have you done in the past 50 years?” Was that rhetorical? I mean...did they REALLY want a timeline, of highlighted events? I did.. what everyone did! Right? I had lived! I paused. Some close friends had not lived. They, and many others, had been snatched away...too soon. I revised my unwritten reply.

"What have you done in the past 50 years?"
“I WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE LIVED.”

The reunion is set for October, 2016. A special thing about “remembrance” is that it has a photographic memory. In my mind’s eye, my high school friends are all..still vibrant, 16 and 17 year olds! They are not concerned about tomorrow. They are concerned about winning the basketball game, later this afternoon. The girls smile, and laugh, and giggle as cute boys pass them in the halls. The boys, four abreast, take up space as they walk like winning warriors to their next class.

In an instant, I find myself in the gray stairwell, following a crowd of enthusiastic kids. They begin to chant.."Let's go, Alio!" Is our football hero ahead of me?! Must be! It is a precious moment in time, frozen as a 'black and white photo' in my mind.

Maybe, I'll go. Pat Andreana Leschen and Ron Daniello..will you be able to find me there? And when we meet, will you remember all the fun we had together..50 years ago?

“Let me tell you something, Cardinal de Bricassart about old age, and about that God of yours. That vengeful God who ruins our bodies and leaves us only with enough wit for regret. Inside this stupid body, I am still young! I still feel! I still want! I still dream!” (Barbara Stanwyck, The Thorn Birds, 1983)

Peace & Recollection,
Goldie
