How to Make it Through the Funeral

HIghgate Cemetery, old graves
(c) Sonya, 2012

Remember to

– Eat breakfast even if you don’t feel like eating because of the stress; you’ll need the energy for later.

– Dress the way they expect you to: knee-length skirt, no cleavage, flat shoes; BLACK!

– Call taxi at last minute; make ‘em wait, they won’t start without you.

– Take an umbrella, you don’t want to ruin your make-up.

– Stay away from Peter!!!!! For obvious reasons.

– Wail with grief (you’re supposed to be devastated!!!).

– Excuse yourself early. Mention exhaustion if necessary. Turn down any offers of lifts.

– Tell taxi driver to wait. Run in, change, grab bags, meet Peter at airport.

  1. Haha! You can almost see this happening sometimes – not everyone is sorely missed and some widows positivley skip to the chapel of rest / to the grave side. Let’s hope Peter’s as keen. Great story, Sonya 🙂
