Who makes you wax nostalgic? What friend or ex-SO do you occasionally wonder about? Who have you thought about trying to call?
Did you do it? How did it turn out?

Ooh! My high school sweetheart...John Hopkins. Like the University, only...not.
We dated for eight months. A girlfriend of mine from the time (still a friend) recently said, "oh, yeah, John dated every girl in high school for two weeks...he's a legend," which was untrue, since I specifically recall dating him for eight months (I asked him, by accident, to the Sadie Hawkins Dance in December...we broke up just before my birthday, in August. I still say he did it to get out of giving me a gift, despite the fact that he had something for me each Friday when we went out).
Perhaps he was dating other girls behind my back. It could've happened.
I put a message in our 10-year hs reunion program for him: "John Hopkins: do you still go to parties without your pants on?" a little joke from when he attended a Halloween party as a a flasher (costume: trenchcoat, with boxer shorts on underneath, and three strategically placed ballons on the boxers -- two round, one oblong...you get the picture).
He didn't show at the reunion. I had my address in there, and never heard from him. Sigh. Probably still breaking hearts, or married with three kids by now. Isn't that always how it goes?
