I am not going to go to the reunion, but I did reply to the e-mail so that the committee would have my contact information. There are several reasons why I am not going to go to the reunion. First, it is about a six hour drive from here. Second, I can't think of anyone who I am just dying to see. Third, I am guessing that most of the attendees will be people who still live in the area and who still see each other from time to time, and I will just be standing on the outside, making small talk with people I haven't seen for ten years. Fourth, I don't have any old high school enemies that I need to go face or impress with my awesomeness, like some guest on Maury Povich; i.e., "I Was Ugly When I Was 14, But Now I'm A Bodybuilder, So Take That!"
I don't think we should even have a reunion. I think the committee should collect everyone's pictures, addresses, job information, and relationship status. Then they should put all that info in a booklet and send it to everyone so that I can mock my old classmates from the comfort of my own home. I would send in the following picture:

[Note: this was taken right after I got done working out, so it is not exactly my best look.]
Or maybe this one:
