amazing how things work out in the end...

so, i found out recently that a cute boy from school, one of the preppy boys that i had a miniature crush on until he became one of the group of boys that would chase me home by throwing rocks at me in the 8th grade...

.. i found out he died. apparantly, he became seriously involved in drugs and had a rough life before dying at age 25 or something like that.

i often wonder what happened to other people i knew in grade/high school and how they turned out.

How odd. I'm sorry to hear about that.

True story that's vaguely similar: my friend Janets father once told us this story about a popular bully he knew in Junior High who tried to pick a fight with him. It turns out that after the attempted brawl, they became fast friends and were pretty close all throughout the rest of their school years. After that, they just lost touch for some reason.

Fast forward 20 years to a trip her father took to a nearby city. He's walking out of a gas station and here's someone calling his name in slurred speech. He turns around, recognizes the slurred name caller as his old friend, and they have a breif conversation. It turns out, his old friend became a junky, ran into some recent trouble with the law, had been divorced multiple times, and was drunk during their very meeting.

A week after their little reunion, her dad is flipping through the newspaper, and is astonished to read an article about a dead body found in a feild not far from the very gas station he attended a week ago - it was his old friend. He died choking on his own vomit, alone in a grassy feild.
