Good words for the dead can be hard to come by. Especially for the kind of dead that ruin a good night’s sleep, or mar a beautiful day with all their deadness.
Take the dead guy sitting in my bed. First, he is obviously an asshole because I didn’t invite him in here. Second, it is 2 in the forsaken morning, I just got to sleep, and I’m on swing this week. So he is an inconsiderate anti-worker asshole. And, not to put too fine point on it, he leaks, the inconsiderate, uncouth, anti-worker asshole.
Did I mention I didn’t invite him to hop into bed with me? Because I didn’t.
I have strict office hours for the animate dead: between 3 PM and midnight during my off weeks, I hear their cases and make judgments. Just because you are dead doesn’t mean you become any less litigious, and the dead have the time for long cases.
Had a thought and enjoyed it. Stopped when I got to the part that would involve work.
