The Indignity of it All!


I had a pretty good life.

Well, OK, maybe not so great, and that ending…  Did I just say “well”?

Maybe I should say I had a pretty good after-life.


I loved mixing with the people, that look on their faces when they became aware that I was there!  Priceless.

Ah the memories!

And then the put a glass tabletop over my well.  My well! 

And suddenly, here I am, a tourist attraction.  All the jerks trying to get pictures of me with their cell phones.

I’ve become a tourist attraction.

I could just die.

Except I’m already dead…
