This week's prompt is "Why?"
All it takes is for my little sis to call me and ask, "Did you see that Tony Pizza from the old neighborhood died?" And I'm done. I head to the obit section of the home town paper - online - and then to the funeral home's online guest book and then back to my sis. It's ridiculous. OR... I'll see a headline like "Man From Monsterville, USA Dies While shoveling Snow" and I'll immediately go to the obituaries
Why are we obsessed with the obituaries? And I know it's not just me n' my sis, I know a lot of people that read them. For some people it's a morning ritual. Coffee, smokes, the obituaries. It's such a morbid curiosity. And speaking of morbid curiosity. Why don't they put the cause of death in the obituary? Why?? Don't you want to know what happened? Especially if it was someone you knew once upon a time? I do! Even if I don't know them! Unless of course it's a suicide or something like that, then I don't want to know but my sister will want to know!
What about you? Are you obsessed with the obits?
What are some of your "Why's" in life?
Why don't you go say hi to Gretchen over at 'Second Blooming' and join in on "The Spin Cycle??"
