Brian Secret #2584126

As creepy as this might sound I love to watch funeral processions. I love to look at the faces of the people in the cars as they go by.

What usually shocks me the most is the look of indifference on the passenger, some times the elation's on their faces as if they are in a parade that is just for them.

As if they are saying pay attention to me I am grieving.

I like try to imagine the person and what they were like and how they died by the looks on the faces of people in their procession.

It is easier then you think to deduce. Station in life can be hinted at by the types of cars. Age by the faces and numbers in the passengers. etc,.

I wonder what mine will be like?

This morbid little musing is brought to you today to remind you that you are running out of time....time to do that thing, take that trip, learn that dance...

So what are you waiting for?

Brian, I will stare down and observe a funeral procession with the best of them, I also read obituaries more then most people I know. People I dont know, old people, young people all of them, I wonder about their lives and I ponder this often--- dude are we weird ?

There's never enough time. Generally, I'm convinced I'll be hit by a bus tomorrow. All you can do is keep doing what makes you happy.

And that's not too macabre. Funerals bring out the best and the worst in people, and the dynamics are quite fascinating, since they pull on opposite ends of the human condition.

Yep, we could be diagnose with am inoperable brain tumor tomorrow my friend.

Your funeral better be a party, not a funeral.

Ugh. I've so got to get over some fears. That's what I'm "waiting for". Working on it now, so that when people gather when I die they don't say, "She always said, 'What if'".

i just witnessed one yesterday. what was most appalling is the lack of respect people show when they refuse to pull over. an extra cycle of the stoplight isn't going to change your life, jackass.
