Overheard at a Funeral

If you followed my previous blog, you know I like to share language gems. Often, they’re accidents. Sometimes, though, they’re on purpose. Here’s one I heard on a TV trailer for the movie Five-Year Engagement. A group of mourners were standing around a grave site where they were apparently burying their mother. One man said: “Mother’s last words were ‘I can’t wait ’til Violet’s wedding.'” I couldn’t help myself. I chuckled for the rest of the afternoon. I think I’ll go see the movie.
