Previously published, perhaps more times than it should have been.

Story behind the story: Many moons ago, my bestie Tiffany and I ingested a few Reese’s dark-chocolate peanut butter cups whilst sitting in the workplace and waiting for some type of validation in our lives. Sugar-levels elevated, loopiness ensued, and we envisioned interesting headstones one might encounter in a cemetery. The list has changed over the years (humor definitely has a shelf life), and the above is the latest reincarnation.

Story behind the photo: This is yet another shot from our excursion to the Alcazaba de Malaga. I like how it appears to be religious, but isn’t necessarily so, and it therefore gives a nod to the variety of belief systems out there. None of us knows exactly what is going to happen. All the more reason to seize the days before we can no longer seize them…

    • Even though it sounds morbid, I do reflect, from time to time, on what I might like on my gravestone, should I have one. (I really haven’t decided on my exit plans, so who knows.) Me, the man who regularly uses 400 words when other folks could sum it up in 10, can’t think of a pithy farewell. Go figure.

      • Ditto. I really liked the one about being buried upside down so the world could kiss my a$$, but I doubt my sobersides relatives would actually do it. I suppose, because they are expensive, to have one made up prior to dropping off the perch, would be the wiser thing to do. Store in the garage until it’s needed. 😝

    • In my case, chances are that I won’t take a chance I should have and that’s why my ass ends up in the ground. I dream big, but I’m very measured with my actual actions, always a conundrum…


  1. Hahah these are brilliant. No 26 – “I told you I didn’t need the extended warranty” I don’t know why but that really cracked me up 😆
    I’m just going for “I told you I was sick” on my grave, which now seems way too boring!
