    "No...I didn't."

      That was then... this is now.
      Hold your head high and feel good about who you are. If they don't like you, screw them. You don't live under the same roof when you go home at night. People who really care about you will find a way of forgiving and forgetting whatever crap happened in the past.
      We should only look down on people that we want to help get up.
      This funeral nobody will even know me, my new boss's mother died. I just do not handle myself well at funerals in general as I get really uncomfortable being there and everybody being all emotional and not knowing what to really talk about because you talk about dead person and people get more emotional, you talk about sports or work or news and it isn't the place, do you try to get to know somebody better but that isn't the place for that and I tend to do really odd things when I am uncomfortable. I am going to find a seat near other people so I don't stand out but not close enough to interact and count by sevens in my head until it is over. Hopefully I will manage to stay out of trouble and not do or say anything too terribly embarrassing.

I am not comfortable at funerals, when I am not comfortable I tend to act a bit giddy and goofy, doesn't work to well at funerals, so I tend not to go, can't get out of this one though, at least I'm not drinking anymore, that lead to a couple of incidents I'd rather forget. Luckily none of the people at them are speaking to me anymore, sooooooo....I only tend to think about those embarrassing moments when I am going to funerals, which really helps my comfort level.

        So if you never hear from me again after tomorrow, its because I died of embarrassment.
        I know how you feel Jenn .. I see you as a person very in tune with yourself , understanding and conscious of your short comings .. Maybe a bit hard on yourself because of your past which your are very honest about IDk but.... You know what to do and how to act and you will be fine... Just breath it in its just lifes air full of emotions its ok ..........oh yeah behave yourself

          In all seriousness, from someone who's been to 34 funerals in 47 years (yes, I checked)....all you have to do is walk up to the next of kin or your boss, and simply hold their hand and say "I am so sorry for your loss." Then give a sympathetic half smile and go sit in the back of the room. If anyone is outside shooting the breeze, go join them.
          You're done.
          Good luck and try to relax.

              Any attempt to relax will have unfortunate results. Count by sevens, since I was little it has worked when I have had to sit still and be quiet for periods over 3 minutes. Or for really can't allow distraction I count down by sevens from 7,777,777 or some other counting game.

                  I think I could get to Kittery in about 2:45.
                  Deny everything. Admit nothing. Make counter accusations.

                            This. You're thinking too much, I do the same thing. Throw in "if there is anything I can do, let me know", say a prayer at the coffin, sit down for a few mins, then go hang out outside.

                            Stop being so hard on yourself Jen. Everyone does or says stupid **** when they've had too much.

                              Actually, I am very good at flirting and quite aggressive when I see somethi...one I want.

                              • and when you say "body wave" do you mean the worm? Did you do the worm in front of the coffin? Because that would be hilarious. Not for the family of course but you're never ever going to see them again so in a way it's like it never happened.
