Okay, I'm so excited I may not even be able to get through this post.
Today I was surfing through my daily blogs and saw that Sharon had put up the post that I think Marissa had started, but I was curious to find out 100 things about Sharon. While I'm scrolling down, it says that Sharon went to high school in Ottawa...Nepean High School. Guess where I went to high school!!!!!! So I immediately get in touch with Sharon and we have just gotten off the phone after discussing, school, neighbourhoods, Golden Palace egg rolls :) (notice we focused in on the food :)) Sharon has a very dim recollection of high school days, but since she was in the honour society this is not unusual. Sharon was at school to learn, while I was a cheerleader :)
Click on the pictures to enlarge. There's Sharon (bottom right photo) in Grade 11 at Nepean High School in Ottawa.
That same year, I was in Grade 12, one year ahead. Bottom row, left. What cuties we are!! We haven't changed a bit:) No wonder I "knew" of her.
While we were trying to put pieces together about our student days, Sharon kept saying she had an uneventful tenure at Nepean, but did remember certain teachers who made serious impressions on our lives. She also dropped that she had convened one of the annual school concerts...let me tell you that was no mean feat!!! Our concerts were renowned and one of the most anticipated events of the school year. She could only remember something about Chicky Snipper being the choreographer, and straw hats. Sharon may be in one of these chorus lines...she'll have to tell us which beauty she is.
I just love that this is such a small world. One day, many years ago now, I walked into what is now Bizzy B's and Sharon was there speaking with the then owner, Phillip. I knew there was something about her that seemed familiar. Over the years, I've always had an uncanny feeling about "knowing" Sharon. In her post today, all was revealed. It's been over 40 years since we walked the same halls and I'm overjoyed that we made this connection today. She is still the same, sweet, brilliant, unassuming girl to me! Great legs too!
