You should start thinking about your
spirit.Will it be a mischievous
spirit?Will it come around after you’re
dead and rearrange people’s drawers so they can’t find their glasses?Will your spirit make the cat hiss dirty
words and breathe fire when she’s waiting to be fed?Will your spirit indiscriminately throw
Or will yours be a
different kind of spirit; the kind that protects kids from being run over by
the school bus?Will it move Mr. Spitts
out of the way just before the stallion or the showgirl does a high kick?Will your spirit be what keeps Mrs.
Socialstress from accidentally putting lithium in the cake batter or asparagus
berries in the punchbowl?
Maybe your spirit could
send messages from the dead to the living.You could finally explain to your relatives why Uncle Soapy spends every
New Year’s Day screaming about the evil ingredients in salad dressing.You could be
the one who tells party guests about all the wonders of the afterlife.But be careful not to get too specific.Saying things like, “When it’s her time to
go, Aunt Gretchen won’t need a sweater”, regardless of how true it is, could
still hurt her feelings, causing her to head-butt Uncle Soapy.
