Obituary Challenge

I told you guys I would get around to it!

So basically I'm out of the hospital (and I have that awful IV out) and going home with antibiotics. This thing sure was stubborn...I received IV antibiotics for 48 hours and it's still going to take a while to get rid of. All I can say is I'm happy to be home where I can have real food and I'm going to put this thing behind me. Of course, I'm not going to school tomorrow or Friday so if I do the math (7 classes x 6 days) I've got 42 lessons and homework assignments to make up. In other words, I'm screwed.

However, I'm going to use this experience positively *cough* and use it to create my obituary. (Real positive Megan...) I was tagged by OddGhoulOut over at Bats in the Belfry, Cats in the Attic. Thank you!

I'm only adding this because, well it's pretty. It didn't come with the challenge ^^

  1. Link back to whoever tagged you.
  2. Put these rules in your tag. 
  3. Write an obituary about yourself (it can be as funny or as serious as you like).
  4. Write about a paragraph or two (or more if necessary) in length.
  5. You may tag up to 10 people, and be sure to link to them.
  6. Have fun, because creative writing is one of the greatest joys in life!


Megan was brought in to the Orlando Hospital late last night. Everyone was momentarily shocked to note the lack of the usual black makeup, which we had assumed had adhered to her face at this point. What seemed at first to be a deep foot infection caused by bacteria actually had a more sinister cause. The deadly affliction occurred shortly after she accompanied her friends to their church in order to participate in the 'Boys VS Girls' event and was forced to wear pink. The restraint she showed in not going off about the sexist implications of the color choice only worsened the onset of the infection. Unwilling, prolonged exposure to the sun was the ultimate blow, and made saving her a futile prospect. Despite a reapplication of black nail polish and viewing of the Adams Family movies and Dracula she did not pull through. She passed away peacefully, listening to Bauhaus and reading the Picture of Dorian Gray. Shortly before, she finished her charcoal rendition of The Joker which she leaves to her little brother. Her ashes will be pressed into a vinyl containing a mix of her favorite songs and left with her family.

I really did do most of that at the hospital ^^ Also, I really did have to wear pink at that church event I was strong-armed into... it wasn't pleasant. Not so much the color as the fact that we had to do it and they picked a color so commonly considered "girly". But I won't go into that.

Oh, and I'm not really kidding about the ashes. You can really do it! Look!

And now to go alphabetically down my blog list and try to find people I don't believe have participated yet...
  1. A Goth in College
  2. Bethezda's Preoccupations
  3. Goth Mary Poppins
  4. Gothically Yours...
  5. Memoirs of a Scream Queen
  6. Milking the Rolling Cow
  7. Nocturne Street
  8. The Everyday Goth
  9. The Halloween Ladybug
