“Box me up, Scotty”

January 14, 2020

For some, thinking about  funerals is distasteful, but a good many of my friends and acquaintances are passing on, so it has occurred to me that I, too, someday may meet them “on the other side.”

But , how will I get there?

A classmate from graduate school who died last year found a husband and wife in Indiana who made simple wooden coffins. Priced at $1,000 and $1,500 hundred each, he chose the more expensive model.

At a Costco I frequent, until recently, they placed nice ones in the color “red” at the exit. Telephone orders were taken and for $600 Costco would deliver one to your garage for later use.

Recently, I had a better idea.

I’ve always admired the late Steve Jobs whose brilliance is visible in Apple PCs, iPads and iPhones. I have a couple of boxes of old iPhones that are beautifully designed.

Why not  expand their size and market them as “iCoffins”?

Imagine the surprise on the faces of grave robbers when, a hundred or two hundred years in the future, they come upon my iCoffin expecting a trove of 21st century iPhones and find  me.

I think I’ll write to Apple suggesting that.
