Funeral clothes (2) Thu, Feb 25, 2010
Of the very few funerals I've attended, I've always felt improperly dressed.  As everyone knows, the dead would like us to wear nice black clothes, of which I own none.  I always show up in something like khakis and a green shirt, and I never fit in.  My clothes are too happy.  I own no sad clothes.  The closest I have is gray, and you'd be surprised how happy and exciting gray clothes look when compared to black.  I have every intention of eventually buying proper funeral clothes, but every time I'm at a store and see something that the dead would enjoy, I can't think of anyone I know who has recently died or might soon bite the big one, and so I put it off.  That's the problem with death.  So unreliable. #lifestyle

Assuming you attend mine...and I have no intention of setting a date for that anytime soon, I'd prefer you not wear black.  Frankly, I'd just assume you wear the brightest most obnoxious colors you've got.  And if you need to, you can carry a sign that says, "Rus would have wanted me to wear this."

So does this count as an invitation to your funeral?  I'm not sure how these things work, but you can count me in.  And I'll probably wear shorts.
