My Teaser:

On Wednesday morning, and about a dozen Vicodin pills later, I am able to shower and wash my hair in preparation for my mother's funeral. I wear a navy blue dress that my mother always liked on me, but I don't bother to blow dry my hair, knowing full well it will end up wavy not straight.
