I notice something strange.

In my post “Late”, I inserted an obituary that I hoped will be used by my son when I pass away.

That portion of the post went completely un-commented on by my readers. The comments were all restricted to the other part focused on punctuality.

I concluded that perhaps that kind of writing on ones own death is uncomfortable to deal with for others.

Now, in my blog post on Aging, as well as on my earlier post on “I am not even good enough”, two commentators have talked about their own eventual death.

Is it that writing about ones own death in a humorous vein that is taboo?
