Ed-vise: Living Funeral

A runner’s morning GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, plenty of runners out this morning on my forward ambulation. Not me…of course. Not a runner here but I do love watching good runners run. Plenty of grace…looks tiring!

Free For All Friday Ed-vise today. Cause it’s FRIDAY! OPEN MAT; PIZZA NIGHT!

Sis introduced me to what is called a “Living Funeral.”

Ever hear of it? Yeah, I hadn’t until yesterday.

Apparently in the 90s, in Japan, the elderly were concerned about not being able to see everyone before they passed away. Further, the family and friends didn’t like the dreary feeling and sadness of a traditional funeral. So, they created a ceremony where the friends and family can come in and see the “Soon to be Deceased” (no better description). They could have a party where everyone was happy and carrying on with festivities etc.


Not for me.

First reason I could come up with: What if I get better? Then, we had a party where everyone thought I was checking out. Now I’m pissed because all my “friends” had ZERO confidence in my healing abilities! I get better and now I have no friends because I would have told them all off!

Add to that, my “friends” don’t want to be friends anymore because they all thought I was soon to be dead. I don’t get invited to anything anymore, nobody talks to me (cause I’m supposed to be dead), and now it’s just awkward.

Not me baby! It just seems too awkward.

Sis was wanting it for Pops. I give it a hard “NO.” Can you imagine a person with dementia and all these people saying “goodbye” to him? No idea why these people are here having a party. Then, you come up to the person give them a big hug and sit in the awkward silence trying to figure out what to say!

“Good luck dying.”

“Can’t wait to see you on the other side.”

“Hope you get better?” Da FAWK?

Instead, how about this. While the person is alive, offer them one last adventure to space. Have a rocket all set up and blast them off to deep space. Tell them it is a one way trip. Say there is a possibility they will survive and make it to some undiscovered world. Tell them they might get picked up by some alien race that could cure them of all disease.

Can you imagine being offered that on your death bed? One last adventure. The chance to go out in a blaze of glory!

Shoot man! SIGN ME UP!

I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember when a rainbow breaks the law, they go to…PRISM! HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH…for a LIGHT SENTENCE!
