This morning I found a letter in my box. It read:
Dear Mr. Hideousheart,
please note that the Grim Reaper will be on strike until May, 07. We are pleased to inform You that any decease dating from May, 05 to the above-mentioned date will not be considered valid. You are therefore entitled to appeal within 24 hours from receipt of this message. A written application must be submitted by registered mail, together with a death certificate.
The Ministry of Grief.
I had to tell Dad. But, will the graveyard keepers let me in, and open the burial recess for me?
