"People will see him the way he was.''

I read an AP story about a recently deceased Pittsburgh Steelers fan who's family opted to have his viewing with the body on a recliner and clothed in PJs with the team's colors. Not to mention the handy pack of cigs on the table next to the recliner and a remote in his cold dead hand. Christ on a bike.

So this got me thinking. If a Steelers-esque send off was appropriate for Mr. Pittsburgh here, what would be appropriate for me? My propped up body on a bar stool with a gin and tonic in my hand? Or something equally embarrassing in death as in life? Now before all of you get any ideas, I do want to be cremated. Maybe you can add water to my ashes and make a lovely sculpture? Something to ponder.
