Fifty-something

We look around these days, see old school friends in town and take note of where they are in life. We all know who married who. Often the spouse is someone we dated, at some point. My friend Mike dated Becky, who later married (and divorced) Tom, who Mike hears from time to time. My first girlfriend Tracy later married Willard, who previously dated Denise, who now lives with a long-time partner, who was friends with my wife.

So much pairing off, breaking up, and confusion. Now life is all practicality and make-do, all the sturm und drang back then so quaint.
