Strange Experience

I feel like Mark Twain today. 
When I looked through the local paper today, I checked out the obituaries as usual.  This time I was startled to see my name, from my hometown.  Whoa.
Wait, it was my maiden name, and I'm still here.  It is a strange experience to see your own name in the obituaries when you live in a small town and know so many people.  The strange thing was that I didn't know this woman whose married name was my maiden name. 
It seems that reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.


  1. Scary! My name, married or maiden, is uncommon enough that seeing it in an obituary would probably give me a heart attack.

  2. That would be too much. I am glad it wasn't you.
