A Moment at a School Reunion

The MC was directing 400 plus ex-students to the new toilet facilities at their old school when someone called out

“Are you still allowed to smoke int the toilets?”

The identity of the wag at the back of the room could probably be narrowed down to one of ten ex-students amongst the 440 present for roll call.

It wasn’t one of my classmates.

School reunion was held to mark one hundred years of secondary education in Jamestown.

(There were times during the four years I spent at the school that I felt I had been there for all one hundred!

Usually in maths and Latin classes.)
