Mexican 101

Today, at a Mexican funeral, some observations:
1. ALL the old men stand (or sit) at the back of the funeral hall.
2. Children are allowed to play and run about even as the catholic priest is talking.
3. the service is indeed in spanish and VERY catholic...stand up. sit down. stand up
sit down. opah...I deen say simon say!
4. the funeral director looked VERY annoyed and unpaid.
5. the family did not pay for a police escort to the cemetary, yet somehow, there
WAS one.
6. my cousins date whores.

in my family you know its a good funeral when someone (being my tia linda) has hysterics and cries so loud you cant hear the priest. its at this point we start looking for the liquor.

im sorry you had to go through that.

nothing brings my family together like a funeral. then for a few months after words i get calls "how are you?" then ... nothing. they forget again.

isnt it amazing how brief the reminder of the shortness of life is after one of those?

i hope your okay. ;D
