In my bacon-y dreams it is, but on the death writer blog, B is for BURIAL.
After investigating both options, I would have to say I’m not a big fan of burial, even though that bacon coffin is mighty attractive.
For one, burial is the more expensive option. Why? You have to buy a casket and a plot. And although it’s not a requirement to be embalmed (unless of course you are shipping the body to another state) the idea of it is totally creepy. When I’m dead, I don’t want people needlessly handling my body, unless they’re harvesting my organs. Hey, guess what? April is donate life month! Click here to learn more about organ donation.
Sorry, I digress. Okay, back to burials. I don’t want to have a stranger who has no idea how crazy and temperamental my hair is styling it. Why?
- they’ll never get it right,
- I rarely cheat on my hairdresser, and I want to continue that tradition even in death. The last thing I want my loved ones to gaze upon is me in a casket with flat ironed hair and clown makeup like Mimi. I know, I know that won't happen. But it could.
What it all boils down to of course is that what we do with our bodies after death is a personal choice, and for many that choice is influenced by religious beliefs.
If you take anything away from today's blog, let it be this--it’s never too early to figure this stuff out. I hope this blog will be a jumping off point for your exploration.
Thanks for stopping by. What's your choice? Have you thought about it?
