…but twice before we came to Massachusetts I thought about bringing ‘dress clothes’ home, but didn’t, because I don’t need dress clothes when I’m home.
The only time I’ve needed dress clothes was at my grandmother’s funeral in 2003 and my dad’s funeral in 2006.
I didn’t bring dress clothes.
Tonight I learned that a classmate from high-school died on 12/24. I haven’t seen him in 20 years (although I realized tonight that I had randomly thought of him last week).
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think there’s any connection between the two. It’s not as if I think anything would have changed if I had brought dress clothes with me.
Except I wouldn’t have to go buy dress clothes before Friday.
