What a night I've had. There was drama, there was craziness, there were worms, there was death and there was one ghoul. No doubt about it, the moon is full.
The worms were found on a patient. I've seen this before-parasites like anything that's rotting or decaying. I could never be a forensic pathologist-let alone a forensic entomologist. The bugs would do me in. I much prefer the more deadly bugs one can't see with the naked eye. Out of site, out of mind.
The ghoul was the funeral home employee. Some people who retrieve bodies for funeral homes have a ritual of leaving a rose on the pillow after they remove someone from a home. I've thought about this for many months, and I can say that without a doubt, this just creeps me out. Some may not mind it, but for God's sake, if it's ever me, I hope they don't do that to my family. Is that supposed to make somebody feel better after the loss of a loved one? I think it falls a little short. Want to make my family feel better when I die? Cut them a deal on the cost of the funeral. That beats one lousy rose all day long.
Would the rose on the pillow seem creepy to you?
