You just got poetic about the reason I will not be buried despite how unrealistic my flawed logic is. I am way too claustrophobic to rest in a box. I have made everyone I know promise not to bury me though I won't ask it of you, not here and now. Love the attitude towards Mavis in your write, seems people etched their own snickering joy concerning her final dilemma on to her headstone. Naughty, isn't that great? Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Hi Bob, some people roam through cemeteries collecting Epitaph's - this will be at the top of their list! I think they are called gravewalkers, but i stand to be corrected! Penned so aptly, really creative! Hugs, Jennifer

Thank you, Jen. The epitaphs I come up with are fictional writes of mine. I am one of the odd ones that like strolling thru cemeteries to discover history and the occasional strange epitaph. Bob

G'day Bob ... interesting Bob. Has any research been carried out on the claustrophobia sufferers by experts on how they react at lying in a coffin - one day it'll happen - thanks Bob - Lindsay
