dont stand on ceremony

I have two roommates. One happens to be my boyfriend. My boyfriend's mother died recently. Don't be sad death is part of life and we really don't have time right now for your sorrow. My other roommate, whom I do not date, said, when asked if he were attending the funeral, "I wasn't invited." Uh. One does not get invited to a funeral. You hear about through the grape vine and then decide attend it not attend. There id no funeral evite or Facebook event page. I wasn't invited to the funeral and I sleep with the next of kin and yet I'm obligated to go. So, roommie, just go bring your awkwardness, but don't bring a six pack of cheap beer. Save that for a party or an Irish wake.
