That sounds like the title of an Off-Off Broadway comedy.
Anyway, yesterday was my great-aunt’s funeral. I met my family at the funeral home, we said our goodbyes and such. We went to the church for the official ceremony.
After which we consolidated people into cars and drove to the cemetery, actually very close to where I grew up. I hopped in my cousin “Jake”‘s car. I forget how we’re related. He’s something like my dad’s step-second cousin.
Now Jake is of my dad’s generation, I think he’s in his low 60’s. He’s a retired lawyer, very successful. I see him only a few times a year at holidays, if that. We normally don’t talk too much. He actually just got a quadruple bypass. I’m not sure why his wife wasn’t at the funeral, but it was just him, so I rode with him.
The conversation was constant and fairly light. Sports, then mentioned an idea he had for a particular product that he might pursue now that he has the time of being retired.
Then he said something else harmless and random, saying “these are the things I think of now that I’m retired.”
THEN he said, very deadpan “You know what else I’ve been thinking of? Superman and Lois Lane.” My eyebrow raised. “How do they have sex? When he ejaculates, it must come out at 180 miles per hour.”
Then he parked and we continued with the funeral.
Now everyone knows I used to do stand-up so they like to be funny around me, it’s almost like a wacky type of flirting. I’m assuming that was the case.
