Yesterday’s local daily carried what is undoubtedly the most intriguing classified ad of the year:
Granted, it doesn’t say whether the urn was empty but would you open it to find out? If it contains ashes, you gotta wonder how long it took someone to notice grandma, grandpa or whomever wasn’t in the car any more. Even the simple question of why you take an urn into a truck stop to begin with is thought-provoking.
Of course, maybe someone was simply complying with an over-the-road trucker’s wish to spend eternity at their favorite truck stop.
Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
