It's your 15-year class reunion at Bancroft High. You bump into five of your former classmates. You're trying to keep everyone straight. Fortunately, nobody has changed their names since school.

You remember that Ian broke his arm twice during junior year and that Sarah was captain of the girl's polo team.

Sydney and the electrical engineer reminisced with Mr. Petit (who just celebrated his 10th wedding anniversary), Ms. Sutter and the one who vacationed in Italy last week about what each of them had once wanted to be when they grew up.

No one has the same first name (Ian, Patrick, Rebecca, Sarah & Sydney), last name (Leander, Mills, Newsom, Petit & Sutter), dream job (Ballerina, Baseball Player, Nurse, Olympic Gymnast & Train Engineer), actual job (Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Electrical Engineer, Warehouse Manager, Physical Education (PE) Teacher & Stockbroker) or recent travel location (Lake Superior, United States; Lima, Peru; Nairobi, Kenya; Rome, Italy; & Sydney, Australia) as anyone else in the group.

Patrick's dream job would have involved keeping tight schedules and running (very) large machines to transport supplies over long distances; his actual position also involves managing tight schedules, running large machines and transporting warehoused supplies.

Rebecca was not surprised that her classmate who had once planned on being a nurse had recently volunteered as a humanitarian aid worker in Africa.

The stockbroker has never married because of his anxiety-ridden work. But it occurs to you that his former dream job, which is played outdoors in front of thousands of sports fans, would have been a stress inducing choice too.

The conversation moved on to recent travel locations. The CFO just traveled on business to the namesake city of the former Olympic gymnast aspirant. Ms. Mills was able to spend all summer with her children at the lake, because those in her career routinely get summers off work.

Uh oh, you got distracted there for a moment when Sydney remarked that this is the first time she has returned to Bancroft High since she left for college. But you did catch that if the former ballerina wannabe just returned from Italy, then the one named Newsom is the PE teacher, otherwise the one surnamed Leander is either Patrick or Sarah.

Phew, you kept everyone straight. Now you're ready to meet the rest of your classmates!
