What if We Do Not Live Forever?
My plan is to live forever. So far, so good. But as I grow older I wonder if I should do some things just in case. For example, I recently have been going to more funerals since, well, that is just simple logic. I mean, if you do not go to their funerals, why would they come to yours? But maybe reciprocation does not always work. I did notice that I was at a graduation or two for my children but I often wondered why they did not come to mine? I would ask, but it probably would be a sensitive issue.
But I do find that getting older when a person says "ashes" or "urn" I do tell them to never ever say those words in front of an old person. Even the word "earn" has to go since it could be misunderstood.
But, we should get to the real question that is first on everyone's mind. And that of course is, "should I arrange for paid mourners?" Well, what can I say, those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Or was it Benjamin Franklin or Winston Churchill who said those words first? They both claim it. Well, moving on. Where to get paid mourners? I decided North Korea. It seems that at the death of the former North Korea dictator that all in the country were told to mourn. Those who did not mourn well just seemed to disappear. That would seem to me to mean that the ones left must be very good mourners. And we should want the best.
But of course, if I arrange to fly in North Korean mourners for my funeral, there could be some questions asked. Some could note the North Koreans and claim that I must be a spy. The others might stay on subject and instead yell, "No! He is a witch I tell you! A witch!" And then the screaming of "Witch!" "Spy!" "Witch!" "Spy!"
This is all much too stressful for me. I have therefore decided to join a group who specializes in what I need to do now. And that is, to not die at all, but to be a burden on society for years to come. Yes, that has a ring to it.
