This Pearls Before Swine cartoon ponders those character traits you’d want discussed at your funeral.
Goat and Rat are at the shore, talking. “You ever wonder what character trait you’d like people to talk about at your funeral? Something you’re really proud of? Something you’d like to be known for?” asks Goat. “Parallel parking,” replies Rat.
“Some would choose kindness,” says Goat. Rat says, “Guess they can’t parallel park.”
I will admit that I failed my first driver’s test because I couldn’t parallel park within the allotted time for the test. However, I did pass it the second time, and have been a perfectly capable parallel parker since. Although, my husband might question that statement.
I’d like to be known for getting the end-of-life planning conversation started. My motto is: “Talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, and talking about funerals won’t make you dead.”
