Write Your Obituary.
Um, let’s start with a few disclaimers. Death is the one thing that scares the absolute shit out of me. Like I am in full-blown panic mode just thinking about it. I will sometimes work myself into a frenzy in the middle of the night thinking about it and not be able to sleep. Not just mine, I think about loved ones too and freak. I’m sure I should be seeking professional help for this. But ain’t nobody got time for that. [confession: I have been waiting to put that in a blog post. Finally did it!]
Also, I don’t make it a habit to read obituaries either. I’m not my sister. So I’m not 100% sure how they go. So I’m winging this.
Jennifer H passed away this last Thursday. She was best known for holding the record for being the world’s oldest person for over twenty years. She will be remembered for crossing everything off her Bucket List, even though she hated that term. We will miss her vast knowledge of useless trivia, love of books and reading, and her spirit of service. She is survived by her four children, many grandchildren, and many many great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Jennifer’s honor to your local animal shelter or favorite charity.
I feel like I really made myself look great here. Oh well. How often do you see an obit that talks about how much of a jerk that person was? Exactly.
Okay, now I’m going to go read what everyone else wrote!
