Mourn for me

New shred of wisdom from the resident office loudmouth: apparently you can buy artificial organs on credit. I'm wondering if that includes an artificial tongue.

She also just sparked a very lively conversation in progress right now with this question: "What kind of school do you go to in order to be a funeral director?"

Not that I'm surprised seeing as how this woman recently mananged to carry on a weeklong discussion about professional mourners.

tell her that most go through either sociology or anthropology, there's actually an interdisciplinary degree referred to as death studies with its own international journal.

a girl i went to school with in college actually was getting her masters after graduation in death studies to open a funeral home.

Wow, thanks, I'll pass on the info (if she actually cares to listen to anyone but herself)!

it's actually a cool journal. i'd order a subscription if i had the money for a $100 journal in a discipline i don't study...
