    When I was 13 I worked in an Army/Navy surplus store (yeah, I lied about my age) and we had a surplus coffin on display. A few of us used to take naps in it during our breaks.

    That stopped when my friend Mark was opened the coffin to get out after his nap, and an elderly woman completely freaked out at the coffin opening and someone sitting up and getting out...

    No pics, it was 1974.

    I remember '74. We rubbed sticks together to keep the record player going.
  6. yeah, there are three coffins for sale in my building. they freak people out for some reason.. I guess they don't realize they're all ending up in one. the baby coffin is kinda sad to see tho.

    ...and taped a nickel to the top of the stylus arm when it skipped too much. I feel like my grandparents all of the sudden. Weird.

    I used to see kids going to & fro at the U of M Cancer Center into the Pediatric section there too (when I was getting treatment). Always thought: "...too young. Let them be kids."

    But life is full of strange, funny and sad turns. I suppose that's why we have this gallows humor going here.
