There's another reason I wore a suit today: My son is in the choir at his high school and they had the choir banquet tonight. So after the funeral, I came home, picked up my son and my wife, and we went out to a very posh country club (one of the choir parents is a member there) and enjoyed some great food, great (or at least very good) singing, and a few laughs. The parents aren't in on all the jokes, but some things are funny even if you don't know the personalities involved.
I got to meet the apple of my son's eye. My son's a junior, she's a freshman. She's a very sweet, stunningly beautiful girl. He hasn't asked her out because her parents, Afghani immigrants, think that she is too young to date, especially a boy that's two years older than she is. But he tries to spend time with her when he can, even if it's not a date situation.
Anyway, we just got home from that. My mood is lighter than it was after the funeral.
