    What the hell happened to you?

    Does that thought ever cross your mind after you see someone you haven't seen in over 10 maybe 20 years?

    I could look at that question from several different aspects. I could be talking to myself in comparison to my long lost friend, or I could be asking my friend the same question. Whether I ask it of him or her aloud is another thing, and the tone of my voice, inflections, etc, all make a big difference in the response I get back.

    When I see someone after many years, my first comment would be more like "Wow, I haven't seen you since...."

    Sometimes it does. And sadly, it's usually in a negative sense

    I find that it happens to me whenever their opinion has changed in some startling way over an important topic or if they have become self-obsessed.

    I'm not sure...everything seemed to be going fine, my score was at 100 and then all of a sudden out of nowhere I was a 99.  Maybe I blinked too many times or fell out of favor with the King. Whatever, I am no longer flying first class on this bird! I wish I could give you a more direct answer but I too am at a loss to determine the true nature of the incident.  But, I am quite please that you cared enough to ask me personally! WB

    Yes, happens all the time... its really sad, because it usually happens in a context where the other person hasn't lived up to the potential that seemed to be in them years before.

    I'm old enough to expect people to become their parents... not always a good thing.  So I'm not surprised by much anymore.

    Yes, it is interesting to see how people change...I had not seen any of my classmates in over 35 year when I found myself home for an annual reunion and I had a hard time keeping a straight face...All the class "beauties" are now fat, sagging housefraus, the big-bad jocks are all has-beens and the most popular is now the town drunk....The little wall flower from the class is a raving beauty, the class geek is a millionaire several times over and I couldn't be happier how it all turned out............................................................................

    I actually think that same thought just about every time I look in a mirror these days. I'm young by most standards, but I look like I've been ridden hard and put away wet. I guess wisdom comes at a cosmetic price!
