For weeks now I've been casually Googling the words "school", "reunion" and "fears".
The amount of sites and links offering advice on how to "survive" your school reunion is staggering: there are endless articles on how to manage the "emotional storm" and triggers - from euphoria to trauma - you may experience if one is looming.
Psycho-babbling peddlers aside, there is nothing like a school reunion (my 20-year reunion falls this weekend) to unleash, at best, an exercise of healthy self-appraisal and gratitude or, at worst, a kamikaze act of crippling self-flagellation.
