10 Tips on Not Acting The Fool At A Funeral
4. It’s not about you.
Remember that same cousin I mentioned earlier? By the end of the service she took to the front of the church to compete with another family member in a sing-off. When she was done being held from damn near throwing herself into the casket, it was no time before she started talking ish about hating family members and questioning why certain people even bothered to come. When another younger cousin took to the front of the church to sing a scheduled tribute to grand dad, my cousin couldn’t wait to get to the front to upstage her. A family friend invited people to say a few words and homegirl took it as her opportunity to get her falsetto on (even pausing to ask the audience could she start again because she was off key). Seriously? All I could do was shake my head.
