Date: July 10th 1978
Location: Mill Valley, California
Event: Mash 4077 25th reunion party
It's the same every five years. Mom and Dad make me go to this reunion so I can hear how surprised everyone is that the two of them had a child. Note I said had a child, not got married. Dad stayed in Crabapple Cove and Mom and I lived in Boston for most of my life. I still saw Dad every weekend and a month during the summer but it would have been nice to have lived all of us together.
I graduated high school at age sixteen and now at age twenty am in Harvard Med. School. Charles is furious that I am in Med school at his alma mater and his son, Charlie, couldn't get in. What Charles doesn't know is that Charlie didn't apply because he doesn't want to be a doctor, but that's another story.
Speaking of Charlie makes me realize I haven't talked about the other Mash kids. Erin Hunnicutt is the oldest, she was even alive during the war, although she doesn't remember it. Her brother Ben, Charlie and Henry McIntire are all around twenty-five. Erin is twenty-eight but doesn't like to be reminded that she is the oldest. Ben is getting his masters at MIT and Henry is in residency at Boston Hospital. Charlie is working at a bar playing piano and would be ecstatic if his dad would realize he was happy.
I spent all of June in France studying French medical techniques and a few French men. Dad has always been so strict about my dating that it was nice to get out without answering a million questions. Mom is fine with me dating around; even bought me my first box of condoms. I know, I was embarrassed too. Well, this trip will be different. I have a huge surprise for Ben.
