Funereal humour

Another week, another funeral, seems to be my life at the moment. This week's was dearly beloved Emma, after a 7 year battle with cancer, the first death amongst our year at St John's College, Cambridge. There was a good turnout from our group of friends. One of them kept saying, regarding who should have died first, "It should have been H!" (H being a hard drinking rugby player who was also at the funeral.) Another's farewell words to me were, "Goodbye WW, see you at the next one."

Ah drinkers are like pickled walnuts - they last forever!

Yes, it's a terrible thing when one's contemporaries start to die. That last friend you mention is a cheerful soul!
