The ole man is thinking burial sites. He has found out it costs around R11 000 to be cremated and he thinks that’s an awful waste of money. Someone also told him you can bury yourself anywhere. Especially in your own backyard, “There’s nothing to stop you”. As a mad-keen DIY guy, he thinks that’s a helluva good idea.
I said “Maybe, but the hard bit will be reaching up and shovelling the soil on top of yourself”.
“YOU can do that” he says.
I said “I don’t think I’d be allowed to. Maybe your friends meant literally YOU can bury yourself in your backyard, but maybe it would be illegal for ME to do it?”
“Oh” – That’s got his active 94yr-old brain thinking. He’s plotting something, you can be sure.
bizarre conversation – what a hoot. I think you should lend a hand or a shovel. Duty and all that stuff
