Since the ability to observe bizarre human behavior isn’t available I’m drawing from my family. We have a little bit of crazy there.
Say what? – My sister-in-law wrote her obituary recently. She’s been involved in a lot of organizations in her lifetime and wanted to be sure each one was noted. She is distraught because there are no funerals locally so no eulogies. The obit has to say it all. At best there is a drive-by at the funeral home. Can’t even imagine that. Maybe the survivors stand on the front steps and wave. She has to book her exit for a better time.
In keeping with the macabre – We also discussed cremation. We have a family burial plot but some of us are considering cremation. My sister-in-law decided to do that but has concerns. She has instructed the funeral director (who is a personal friend) that she doesn’t want to be processed naked. She wants a sheet over her. The beloved husband said but you’re dead so it makes no difference. I suspect she wants the blue eye shadow on too. Vanity conquers all.
The fourth is the charm! — A grandniece recently took in an adult cat. It’s her fourth cat. She couldn’t believe how much fun it is to have four cats. I can’t agree with her more. It’s very manageable. Costs more for food and vaccines but I never worried that anyone was lonely. I was fortunate that mine all get along. I miss having that fourth cat but I’m trying to downsize. We’ll see how that goes.
Any crazy in your family you want to share?
