It's been awhile since I've done a person of the day. Meet Private Kevin Elliott. He wore a dress to his friends funeral. Why? Well, he bet his friend that whoever outlived the other would wear a dress to the others funeral. A bet. How many people do you know that would honor a bet so completely?
"Private Kevin Elliott and his friend, Barry Delaney, had agreed that whoever survived the other should wear a dress to the dead man’s funeral. Mr Delaney duly fulfilled the pledge as a tribute to Private Elliott, who was killed aged 24 while on foot patrol in the southern province of Helmand on August 31"
I know, I know. It's morbid as hell. But it also makes me think. Do I have any friends that would do this for me? I should hope so....but hopefully they would show up in something a little bit more classy. And in a neutral hue.
