My husband asked me to accompany him in a mini reunion with his classmates during their elementary school years. While chatting over dinner, I thought that one could tell if the group belongs to the senior years, or nearing it, depending on the famous topic. It is about health! Although most were just 60 or about to become 60 (senior citizen's status), they were so concerned about each other's health status and what healthy practices they are doing . If a group of younger people meet, probably they would be talking about jobs, business, wealth, relationships, fashion, etc. So everything boils down to one's health which is the most important thing in our lives. During your reunions, what's the most important topic during your meeting?

I think offspring would be the most explored topic at a reunion and at mine (the 20 year one) everyone else had so many stories to tell of theirs . . .

It seems health or wealth would be popular topics at any reunion these days!

Hi friend? Nice to be here again despite not so often. During reunions there will be casual topics.They just come out when one starts to talk hehehe. If married usually about children, and if in the 60's maybe about their pensions received or the activities they like.

Probably the things they have been doing over the past few years, kids with the curiosity of their jobs and their own family.

Normally, families will talk about their province life. If friends, they talk about childhood days and school. And some would about achievements/

I've never been to a class reunion, so I wouldn't know. I suppose the older you get the more your health deteriorates, so it's natural to talk about it.

A very happy topic at that, a summation of what had been done in life's course.

Among our friends, all around the 70 mark, health always comes up as a conversation topic. That and where to go to live out our last days.

I agree with you, and it is the common topic for elder people who meet after so many years; each other suggesting healthy ways to enjoy life more.

I have not been to a reunion in a long time, but I can see those nearing 60 being interested in discussing health. Being 60 and over does come with some unexpected health issues for many.

It is a common thing, for people who are 60 to have some health issues, that's why it is the common topic during reunions.
