Meeting people you have not met in a long time and jabbering away excitedly.
Running out of things to say in roughly five minutes and moving onto the next person
Eventually ending up spending most time with the five friends you have anyway been in regular touch with the last ten years.
Noticing that most men have lost their hair or acquired a paunch or both
The guy in the top five heartthrob list ten years ago is now in the top five paunch list.
But then new top five candidates have emerged..
Being fully prepared to dance and drink the night away
Realising that alcohol is now banned on campus and exactly ten people are interested in dancing leaving you looking like some Prabhu Deva wannabe
Finding out enterprising batchmates have sneaked in drinks and noticing that the other nine people on the floor are providing such enthusiastic company you really don’t care about the fuddy duddies seated elsewhere
The night canteen has extended its menu to unbelievable levels including a patisserie outside
Turns out though that the top most popular dishes are still bread burjee and cheese Maggie noodles
Quickly reverting to the ‘eat as quickly as you can’ mantra before ten others wipe the food clean from your plate.
Realising that you have stayed up till 5.30 a.m. on campus not for project deadlines or exam cramming but just to gossip the night away
When actually there is no gossip since most everyone is married, has kids and a stable/boring life.
But then you can always rehash the gossip from ten years ago, find out stuff that you never knew and be totally horrified/thrilled.
Yup, it was a good tenth year reunion
