Bun Fights

Today was a busy day for funeral runs, not to the actual service but picking people up from the bun fights afterwards. You never know how the drinking afterwards will affect the mood of the fare and so I am always careful not to say too much until I have gauged how they are. Four jobs from three funeral do’s today and they all seemed to have had a drink and a laugh and enjoyed themselves. I think it’s something to do with the tension leading up to the funeral and the relief when it’s all over, and they can loosen the black ties have a fag and renew old friendships and reminisce with seldom seen relatives.
