 OK. So I used to haul garbage for a living. Build the Chez out of discarded junk. Build a few boats out of junk, went across the oceanâ Yada yada yada. Youâve heard it all before. But this time, itâs a little differentâ I got a call to clean out a funeral parlor. This place in Palo Alto went out of business, and I got the gig to clean the building out to the bare walls. It was weird, like one day it was a funeal palor, then next day it was closed. All the coffins were still in the showroom. Computers sitting on desks. Broom closets full of brooms and garbage bags. Tools. Church pews.  A small P.A. system. The fancy organ. Podium. Then, there was the room in the back with all the embaling stuff.

 I kept as much as I could. You guys can have it all. We are doing a few performances, an embalming lecture (from a real embalmer!), a eulogy, a few funeral dirges and a puppet show. We have tons of comfortable chairs from the funeral parlor you can have. We have 50 wooden coffin stands. A few embalming tables. Some prayer kneeling benches. Creepy medical stuff. Urns. Coffin dollys. Itâs really quite amuzing to just look at and interact with the stuff. But we are show people, and the correct response to anything is to do a show. Soâ..
