R.I.P. McMean (not really)

OH man! Thank you Mama Kat. Finally a prompt I can hit on the head! After all Obits are my.....job. I've already written my obit once before, however it wasn't 45 words or less. That time I just wanted to see how much it would cost to run in our paper. It was a lot. It was to much! Take it from me, the obit clerk, those long rambling obits about how WONDERFUL you were and what not. A little over the top.

So 45 words or less my obit would be as follows.

Amy McMean, 100, died today after a long life. She lived her life, right or wrong, the way she wanted. She makes no apologies for what she did, how she thought or the way she acted. If you knew her you’ll understand.

If i could change my career path right now. Trust me being an obit clerk isn't all it's cracked up to be. I would be a party planner. Hows that for a 360. I love planning parties, making things, decorating, everything. I'm good at it. I just don't have the never ending budget to make my parties the best they could be. I would do great with a bigger budget :)

so what prompt did you pick

I think a party planner would be such a great thing to do! Wonderful idea! I hope you can plan a party soon since you love it so much! : )

If you planned wakes, you could kill two birds with one stone. Hahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah. Sometimes I crack myself up! ;)

And LOL... my word verification is 'quitt'... appropriate for an obit post, don't you think? ;)

That's awesome! And I think it totally makes sense that you would choose a career so opposite from what you do now.
