Future plans

My mom: When I go, I don't want any funeral or any service. Just cremate me.

Me: Well, is there anything you want done with the ashes, at least? Like, do you want them in the garden or anything?

My mom: Well, I don't think you'd want to eat the tomatoes that year.

Me: Good point. Where do you want them, then?

My mom: I don't care. Surprise me.

My mom used to pull this one on me, too, until I told her I would probably either "bury her at sea" (by which I mean flush them down the toilet) or have them smoked by some hippie. Then she said an urn in the care of my sister would be fine.

I always wanted to be left in the woods to rot. Since I'll be already dead, might as well make some good compost for the trees. Bu if I judge from all those CSI episodes I see, it creates some kinda fuss to the person that finds you. I think it's kinda illegal too.

I guess a corpse-farm could be an alternative.
