Say what?

I saw a headline recently on a local newspaper site (that shall remain unnamed). The headline read:

Pending obituaries for Thursday.

I thought about going to back to see if they turned into actual obituaries, or if these people somehow pulled through.

It reminds me of my grandma who used to say she got up every morning and read the obituaries to see if she was in them.

She only made it once and unfortunately she never lived to see it.

As an aside, I wonder what the affect of “Pending Obituaries” is on recovery. Is one more or less likely to recover once they have made the “Pending Obituary” page in the paper?

Sounds like the makings of a good sociological study.
