Duct Tape on the Headstone
Allen's post about death got me to thinking about a very unfortunate turn of events. As most everyone knows my sister was killed in a car accident a few years back and my parents were very distraught over the situation so I helped with the arrangements. (Hold on, this is NOT the unfortunate turn of events)
Now everyone knows I am cheap, and while its pretty cold to do scheming at such times, I just felt compelled to save a little money while doing the arrangements. Now I did not need enough flowers to sink a battleship, but I do plan on dying someday so I figured I might as well go ahead and buy my 6 x 4 feet plot of soil that I will take up until a meteor vaporizes this planet. (Cemetery plot). Now its not to hard to realize that the Mrs. will ultimately die too, so while I was buying all this stuff,I sprung for a headstone: one for me and the Mrs and one for my sister...a two for one deal don't you know.
Well that was fine until I got a divorce, so here is my problem. I got a very big, and wonderful stone that says Travis and Tina Johnson...the problem is, Tina is now sporting some other last name, and my new wife did not come with the convenience of having Tina as her first name. This leaves me in a pickle. I can do a few things I figure:

I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
