The Friends Reunited website hasn’t come up with many names for me – I got much better results from going to my school’s Old Boys’ website.
My old classmates mostly seem to have outflown me in conventional terms. But probably they’ve been trying very hard and keeping their noses to the grindstone, while I’d bet my life has been more colourful than most of theirs. I would not want to swap places.
Interestingly, among the handful I’ve been able to keep track of, two are married to Asian girls – one Japanese, one Filipino – which with my Chinese other gives us almost enough to form a club. If anyone at our 100% WASP school had suggested that any of us would get shacked up with anything other than an English rose, we’d have given them a good knackering and told them they were off their rockers.
