Two Words You Should Never Use at a Funeral

Those two words are "death" and "kill." But leave it to me to find a way to work those two words into two different sentences.

The Setting: My friend's husband's funeral (he was in his early 30's. He died from cancer....this was years ago.)

The Scene: Receiving line with my friend and all of her close relatives in line.

The Humiliation:

My friend to me: (I'll change her daughter's name here for their privacy) "Kelly just adores Amanda (my daughter)."

Me: "Oh, the feeeling is mutual! Amanda loves Kelly to death!" (in my head I'm shouting at myself "WTF was that?!!!!!!!!")

My friend: "We'll have to have her over for a sleepover one night."

Me: "Amanda would KILL to be able to sleep over with Kelly!"

I walk away with an oft repeated refrain to myself playing in my head: "I am such a loser."

I will do it everytime girl, I thought i was the only one with no filter on my mouth...what goes in my head comes out my mouth and I just can't help myself. The older I get the worse it gets, by the time I'm 80, I'll have the entire world offended!

LMAO, that could have happend to me... I am also the one that repeatedly says to people with their eyes popping out and trying to give me some kinda signal: "He's behind me, isn't he?"... So I feel for ya!
