Let Them Put The ” Fun” into Funeral!

 

This is a traditional solid pine coffin- you can get it in made pine and other materials and it will  come in a array of colors too.

And then there are Non Traditional Coffins

They are made to look like ballet slippers and  Nintendo game controllers and even cellphones ,  and then there are coffins like these-

behold

These fantasy coffins are made to order.

Six people can all order a  the same guitar-shaped coffin from a manufacture who specializes in that choice but the African Fantasy Coffins are designed specifically for an individual and reflect an aspect of their personality.

The craftsmen are as involved in the Funeral Planning as the Funeral Director which is not such a bad idea. Death is such an overwhelming process that we can all use a guide or two can only be helpful.

I think if my family had to sit down and design a coffin for me they would go traditional and it would probably be pink because they know I would  choose this:

It’s not an actual coffin.

Yet.

We were at a museum and we were taking a long leisure walk through the Chamber of Horrors.

Around one of the corners was an example of what it looked like when someone was walled up alive and died in there.

” If you are really careful you can probably get your phone and hand into that opening and get a picture” Luis said to me.

I looked into the hole in the wall.

” I think you’re right.” I agreed.

I kissed the wall  ( well, I got as close as I could- no lips were actually involved ) and dropped my arm down through the opening and with a few clicks I had my picture.

I checked the little screen and said, ” I can use that for my Halloween stories. ” I said happily.

There was a woman standing behind me. She looked over my shoulder into my camera  and she asked, ” Do you think it’s real?”

” I’m not sure but I do know how to figure it out.”

” How? ” her friend asked.

” Well. You can tell if it’s a real bone by licking it. If it sticks to your tongue its real.”

My family were on their way out of the room before I could answer.

” Have you ever, I mean why would you, really? Where did you learn to do such a thing  ” she asked.

” I learned it in the Girl Scouts. ”

” No you didn’t.”

They laughed- it was a shaky laugh, it was timid, it was music to my ears.

” I’m just kidding, I didn’t learn to do that in Girls Scouts, that’s just crazy talk. I actually learned it on the Girl Scouts.”
