words we all should live by.
downright hysterical sobbing. because i watched how i met your mother. normally that would just be ludicrous. but this episode covered the funeral for marshall’s dad. so, yeah. watching marshall’s grief pretty much did me in. it’s been a mere 2.25 years since my mom passed away. there are some things i remember with ridiculous detail about the days and weeks that followed. but the funeral – that’s a bit of a blur. especially the eulogy my brothers and i gave. they tied the episode around the eulogy. and the importance of last words. i remember obsessing over that the first time anyone close to me ever died and again with my mom. i never really remembered. especially because she was so out of it the last time i saw her conscious.
i liked how the writers weaved this story. and it gives me hope that they are going to give marshall’s grief a great storyline. how real people cope with grief. there will be a day or month where all one can do is read blogs and watch youtube videos of things exploding at work to survive. but now, please excuse me, i need to go see if crocodile dundee 3 is on instant watch.
