Everyone who takes the forensic class at school always makes up their mind to give their body to the farm.

I had two major experiences. Having to bury relatives (I'm at that age), I read The American Way of Death, by Jessica Mitford. Scandals abound!
Next I went out drinking with a cemetary worker, who got the money to take me out by pawning a bag full of gold fillings and watches. Hey, he made $13 an hour, and they didn't need it, right?
After that, I'ma do one of two things: either the backyard with a tree on top–or, a small pyramid, complete with a chamber for my friends to hangout in and a curse, for thieves.
