9am leave for memorial in city two hours away
12:11 pm lose it when I see a picture of myself and the passed smiling like idiots at the fifth grade picnic
12:30 pm give my condolences
12:45 pm start drive back to city I live in
1pm cry in car
2pm melt in 104 degree weather in black pant business suit because I don't have air conditioning in my car
2:30 pm get back to work
But hey, at least work is being understanding. They'll let me make up the time I missed by working overtime. Fresh overtime. They won't let me pull from the hours and hours of accrued overtime I already have but they will let me work NEW overtime to make up for my five hour gap.
All that being said? I'm really, very glad that I got to go.
If there is anything after death I hope that he is enjoying it.
