Most obituaries tell us nothing more than a chronological map of someone’s life, and a list of people the dead person knew.
Everyone happens to be beloved by all who knew him, when this is the biggest piece of turdshit I’ve ever heard purported. We’ve all got at least a few enemies, and many more who would take us or leave us, as we should. How does everyone suddenly become so perfect when they ded?
Some of my friends are under the impressions that my job consists of writing obituaries, when in fact I’ve only written one, for myself, with concision, to save everyone a little time before getting my lifeless corpse out of the way for good.
Years ago, sure – Few days ago

Fella was alright. Beloved aunt, aunt-appreciator, and sloppy contest winner. He always wanted to be the best at hanging out. He enjoyed laughing with his buddies, laughing by himself and all kinds of brain tricks. He wanted to be a writer but instead just wrote stuff down.
He is predeceased by Papa Doc Duvalier and a little over 100,000,000,000 other people.
