“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” said Mark Twain, based on a dream he had a month before he did die.

My friend Kristen Lamb and I recently received advertisements from local funeral homes about planning our own funerals.

Well the silly side of me took over.  I could march myself into the local funeral home, greeting the receptionist with rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.  Then ask to try out a coffin.  I can then play vampire.

As long as no one drives a stake through my heart.




About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
