In one of his spine-chilling books, Stephen King has a character say that "when a train goes past, all you notice is the locomotive and the guards-van. Nothing in between !"

Therefore if you decide to go, make your choice: buy or borrow the finest clothes, shoes, watch and etc., and go to bedazzle everyone with your wealth and power.

Or go in the most ghastly old stained rags, holes in socks, shoes falling apart, no timepiece on your wrist, and a loathsome reek of sweat and disease about your armpits, feet and groin.

In both cases you will be noticed and talked about, although in the second case you are unlikely to go home with a companion on your arm, unless some of your former classmates are gutter-trolling perverts
