The holiday season is prime time for high school reunions. Whether it's your 5-, 15- or 40-year, or whether being back in your hometown is a reunion in itself, there are at least a few types of people we all inevitably bump into.
Here we give you our master list of the 10:

Why he's hard to recognize: He's no longer wearing a hoodie.
What to expect: When you talk about memories from high school involving him, he has no idea what you're talking about.
Wardrobe choice: A nice suit ... that still smells like incense
3.) The Ugly Duckling Who Blossomed
