Today in my Grief class we had a guest speaker. He was a funeral director from a local funeral home.
He told us all about the steps for planning a funeral--choosing a casket and such. He even gave us a price list.
"People tend to find this funny," the funeral director dude said, "but our caskets are outfitted with a box-spring mattress!"
We all kind of laughed.
After he was done talking, he asked for the usual questions. Sheena asked: "Can anyone like just buy a casket just for the casket?"
"Sure," the guy said.
"Cool," Sheena said. "I'd like to have just a casket..."
"Why," I asked Sheena. "Would you sleep in it?"
She smiled. "Might as well, right."
"Sure," I said. "After all, they DO have a box-spring in 'em!"
