Thinking of the Thereafter

In lieu of my last post, and Pop getting his nose job by the morticians, I have made the following decision:

I want to be buried wearing knits.

I don't wear knits. Knits make me look lumpy. Nothing screams, "OH LOOK! She had three kids!" like my wearing a knit ensemble.

So I don't.

But I decided, if I can get hold of the morticians before I die and give them my wishes, maybe I can have them cut away all the tummy fat that makes me look mommish, and give me the flat stomach I really never had. A good push up bra and I could have one helluva body.

A dead body... but still.

So, that's my current mindset. Let the morticians fix my body and bury me in a knit ensemble.

Of course I've not passed any of this by my ever lovin' husband. I think I'd get the... eye roll.

I'm going with a photo of my choice next to the urn.

Funny, I almost msg'd you this morning about how I could get my boobs not to fall to the sides when I'm dead. I like the tummy tuck idea as well. Ok, I'm going to be cremated but if they have a viewing before that... I wonder if they can make me look great! ;-)

I actually decided I want what I call 'The Mozart Burial' where I am just wrapped in a shroud and thrown in a hole with some lime. I've gotten some serious "I don't think so's" so I told Mr. T 'Pine Box'. He said, "I'm going to get you something really nice and frilly just to piss you off."

Dang kids.

My only issue with cremation is not the cremation itself, hell, I'll be dead (hopefully), but the geneaology part of it. I need a tombstone for research.

I hadn't checked in in over a week... I am so sorry for the loss in your family. After following the Pop stories for 6 years... It will be strange not to read them.

As for my own burial- I want to be cremated and scattered in Ireland. Though I understand the tombstone for research thing...

I totally understand about the genealogy thing. Ten years ago, I would have said I want my ashes scattered in Oklahoma. Now, I think I want to be buried in Indiana with a headstone near the family. Only because it would be easier on the family genealogist years down the road.

I'm going in the Mennonite Cemetery with 4 generations of my family and numerous other relatives.

I've told my sister only she can pick out my casket outfit and it should be of the jeans and sweatshirt varity. I want to be comfortable in the hereafter.

I also told my sister if she lets anyone else in the family to pick out the casket outfit I will come back and haunt her for the rest of her life.

Yes, everyone else in my family has horrible taste in clothes. No fashion sense what so ever. I can only image being buried in pastels that my mother loves so much. Gah
