I Brought You Chipotle, So You Have To Plan My Funeral

in Adrian, I'm A Terrible Person

Normal people’s Valentine’s Day conversation held in a bathtub while drinking wine:

Husband: You’re beautiful.
Wife: You’re handsome.
Husband: You are the love of my life and you have nice boobies.
Wife: You changed my life and all my goals and you have a not-that-weird ball sack.
Husband: We are gloriously amazing.
Wife: Without a doubt.

My  Valentine’s Day conversation held in a bathtub while drinking wine:

Adrian: I brought you Chipotle and wine tonight, so you’d better be happy.
Me: Goddamn you’re romantic.
Adrian: Well I love you.
Me: And I feel strongly in a love-ward direction for you.
Adrian: If you died, I would be bummed for a while.
Me: If you died, I would not know what to do for your funeral.
Adrian: Romance, eh? Funerals in a bathtub?
Me: Well, I wouldn’t know. I’d probably play some hipster bullshit music and call it good.
Adrian: Nice to see you’re putting in some effort there with your decision to play “Hipster bullshit.”
Me: Well, what would you want?
Adrian: Adagio in G. You?
Me: My Way.
Adrian: Sinatra or that guy who won America’s Got Talent?
Me: If you’re having them sing live at my funeral, then please go with Sinatra.
Adrian: He’s dead.
Me: Exactly.
Adrian: You want zombie Sinatra to sing at your funeral?
Me: Of course. You have the information to log into my blog and tell everyone, and please do, because I have a feeling that a lot of people will want to see Zombie Sinatra at my funeral.
Adrian: That’s if I don’t forget the fog machines and laser show.
Me: I love you for remembering.

Love is getting Zombie Sinatra to sing at your wife’s funeral.

What’s the weirdest/most awesome/strangest/most hilarious thing anyone’s ever done for love that you know about?

Zombie Sinatra will definitely be a headliner that no one will want to miss. I kind of have a feeling that you’ll want him to lip sync though since “unnnggggggh uuuuh nnnnnngaahh mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmgggga” is about the extent of the zombie vocabulary. Maybe Jani Lane can sing backup?

I imagine his presence alone is enough to satisfy most. But he’ll eat my corpse, so hey.

Jen February 15, 2012 at 8:54 am

I know a guy who created a false persona for himself for love. He made up fake business cards for a real estate management company that didn’t exist and used them to explain to people why he was flying hundreds of miles every week to see a woman in Texas. He even made up flers for a fake real estate convention in London and used his real employers travel fund to take his girlfriend to Europe. All of this would be wildly romantic if he weren’t already married. . .to me. . .and was doing the same thing with three other women out-of-state. Oh yeah, he is all about the romance, folks.

And the drinking makes sense all of a sudden…

Although, I don’t understand why shotguns aren’t involved yet. I have this image of you in my head, being a bad ass chick in leather, hair blowing wildly around (but never in your face, because what sort of image does that send?) with a shotgun in one hand and your other hand on your hip.

Some people don’t deserve awesome short people.
This, spoken from an awesome (sort of) short person.

L-Kat February 15, 2012 at 10:07 am

I’m sorry, but your funeral sounds fantabulous. I’d like to request a personal invite. But don’t have a funeral soon, that would be sad. But don’t wait until I’m like 106 because then I might not like the laser show. This is getting awkward….let’s just host a fake funeral for the fun of it.

They call those “Rehearsal Funerals”, L-Kat.
I say personal invites should be handmade, and come with 3-D glasses for a movie.

Brandon S February 16, 2012 at 9:53 pm

If there is a 3-D Eulogy I’m totally there. The personal handmade invites though might be overboard because then you’d have it on the fridge… then the dresser… then it moves to a drawer .. until finally one day you’re like “How much longer should I save this thing?”. That’s why I hate Save The Date cards. Seriously an email would have worked just as well.

Then again, I’m a guy.

Both dogs have the ‘flu’ and are puking and crapping all over everything. My dear Him cleaned it up every time it happened yesterday evening.

My husband had a large painful zit on his back where he couldn’t reach it.
He came home after working a 3-11 shift and woke me up to help him out with the zit. So I stuck a pin into it until all the gross puss-y stuff came out of it. FOR LOVE.

PS. I had to write puss-y because I didn’t want anyone to think a pussy came out of his zit. That is all.

Ex-Boyfriend bought me a stuffed hedgehog once. He said he considered going into the Coach store and seeing what he could find for me, but the hedgehog seemed like a more exciting prospect because he wasn’t actually sure if they exist in real life. Romance.

But would you do a Zombie makeup?

Monica February 15, 2012 at 12:08 pm

My mother always said she wanted us to set up a buffet in the back of the funeral home when she died, so she could see what we were eating. She threatened to pop up out of her coffin and bitch us out if she didn’t approve. She was Italian and kind of obsessive about food. So when she died, I had the post-funeral meal at a restaurant. I was afraid she’d really do it. A bitch can’t be too careful about the walking dead.
Monica recently posted..This is the most awesomest thing ever. OMG OMG OMFG!

Yeah, because if you fuck up her buffet, she’ll just eat you instead. That’s a terrible threat.

Carrie - Cannibalistic Nerd February 15, 2012 at 12:08 pm

I made up something called “The Toilet Fairy,” who brings non-occasion gifts and leaves them on the top of the back of the toilet. Among the gifts given was a Robocop DVD. It’s romantic but also runs the risk of falling into the toilet, which creates a nice balance.

Brandon S February 16, 2012 at 9:59 pm

The problem, Carrie, is that the receiver is a guy right? Which means if said gift DOES fall into the toilet. He’ll lift it out, wipe it on the back of his shirt (or a frilly guest towel… whichever is closer) and be on his way. All the while leaving the seat up.

Dana the Biped February 15, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I feel a little bad for my boyfriend. He’s all romantic-like, and has made such gestures as filling my bedroom with balloons and standing outside with me in -30 degree (F) Green Bay temperatures while I pump gas. I get him cards with puke jokes and asked him to get a stool sample from my dog for Valentine’s Day.

That’s true love right there. We both suffer from Butts Disease.

I made him pancakes and have a standing arrangement to steam clean the dog vomit out of the backseat of his car. What can I say? We’re romantics.

That’s real love right there. So nice.

Charity Woosley February 15, 2012 at 2:34 pm

I totally think having zombie Sinatra would be great. Personally, I’d choose Zombie Bob Marley but to each her own. I have no comment on the romance thing as I am bitter & cynical after a fiasco marriage to a narcissistic sociopath but, hey, romance lives on at least in books.

Mandi E. February 15, 2012 at 8:58 pm

We used to have a dollar bill we’d pass back and forth to each other with strange/lewd/funny messages on them (Thanks for last night, Buy yourself 10 more ugly t-shirts, No moleste, por favor). Most of the time they only made sense to us (I love the way you play the magic flute), but once in a while, friends would pick it up off the desk and read the notes and wonder how they ever came to be friends with us.

Sadly, I believe the dinner party guest of one of those friends ended up stealing it. Guess we’re going to have to get a new bill and step up our game.

Front Desk Ninja February 15, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Strangest- In high school some guy died his hair fire engine red and sang love ballads to his girlfriend during the five minute breaks between each class. He also had a ukulele.

Most Awesome- My friend’s girlfriend (now wife) flew across the world to be with her on Valentine’s day. She was doing an exchange, and in a crazy bummed out mood over one day, and he saved up for and went out for a weekend. Ridiculous.

Weirdest/Most Horrible – An ex from high school bought carnations (the high school always did shit like that, and they’d deliver it in class and you knew who was expecting one and didn’t get it and who sent them to themselves) one year because he was in Mexico on Valentines, which didn’t bother me in the slightest, until the girl he was fucking behind my back ALSO got her carnations in my class. but the guy handing the carnations and love notes out got ours mixed up.
Yeah. Fantastic showdown in the cafeteria the day he got back.

Hilarious- Last night. See below. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to top that shit.

Jillian @ Brilliant Title February 16, 2012 at 10:21 am

My mom doesn’t have music requests for her funeral, but she does want to have “colors” like at a wedding– turquoise and sunshine yellow, specifically– as well as the immediate family to be wearing flip flops. She also wants her body cremated and then compressed under super high heat to become diamonds so that all three of her daughters can have “a piece of mommy” for the rest of their lives. We all veto that plan, mostly because we’re each afraid of being the one who loses “mommy” down the shower drain…
