Student Avoids Old High School Classmate at Grocery Store

By Doug Patrick

FAIRFIELD, CONNECTICUT—Spotting an old high school friend at a local grocery store, Luke Reyes (’19) hid among an array of pasta sauces in aisle 7 to avoid them. “I don’t have a problem with him or anything,” Reyes said. “It’s just, like, what’s the point, you know?” Having already endured a summer of meaningless catch-ups and awkward silences at several shops, town events, movie theaters, and restaurants, Luke ultimately decided to avoid the charade altogether. “I’d honestly rather read the ingredients in a shitty marinara sauce three or four times over than bump into someone from high school. At least I’m not obligated to smile and tell the marinara it was great seeing it.”
