RDP THURSDAY: MYRIAD
Do you know that in some
morgues and embalming rooms
there is a chair next to the door.
It’s always a sturdy chair that won’t slide across the tiled floor easily.
The chair is there for people who come in
to fall on or use for support if they feel faint
because these rooms will steal the air from your lungs
with no warning at all and nobody wants to end up face down on a morgue floor.
There are so many stories like this one
just waiting to be told, but they are hard to listen to
and sometimes when you hear them you might wish you had that chair
next to the door that doesn’t slide across a tiled floor easily.

A great take on the prompt Anita. Luckily I don’t have tiles 😂 Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂
I used to hate doing morgue transport. There fresh bodies groan, sometimes twitch, and give off sounds. I was in the OR, but sometimes things didn’t work out well, and someone had to do PM care and transport.
By the time I would get to the morgue, I didn’t see any of that. But once I was there and saw that reaction when the muscles in the hands kind of twtich. You’d never think it was a natural movement- I called it spider hands. Very strange.
