    Being An Usher

    Funeral Fashions

      I am writing these silly stories to poke fun at funeral traditions, some of which are dated, torturous, and an insult to the deceased. We go through them because we don't want to offend anybody. The truly brave and the truly cowardly avoid funerals altogether. Most people...

    Funerals Are Stupid

    I hate them. I've been to a handful of em. Grandparents, distant relatives, etc. No one in my immediate family has died yet(discounting pets). When I go to a funeral I usually feel apathetic. I'm not sad. I'm not wallowing in my grief. Honestly? I couldn't give a fu-ck about the...

    Of Course I Do

    I think you would need to be pretty warped to enjoy them, no matter if you knew the person or not.But in my strange way of looking at life, I find funerals life-affirming at the same time. Because you realise how short and frail life is, and that every moment should be lived...

    Emotionless Observations.

    Am I emotionless? Perhaps. When someone dies would I cry? Would I cover my eyes, Would I just simply lie? Lie to myself without a tear, desperately wishing they still were here. Death to me. Is an observation you see. An Idea under glass. Tears, paint my cheek sometimes. A...

    I went to my boyfriends dad's funeral yesterday.

    His dad was way to young and passed away of cancer. My bf is 19 and I'm 16. It broke my heart to see his family so broken hearted. I hate funerals so much.
