Me: “Embrace me sweet death – but first, try a bite of this delicious Bacon Bomb meatloaf!”
DEATH: ‘YOU KNOW I DON’T HAVE A TONGUE.”
Me: “But you talk like-”
DEATH: “I HAVE NO FLESH AT ALL.”
Me: “But you talk like a person with lungs, vocal cords, the whole nine yards.”
DEATH: “DO YOU SEE A TONGUE IN THIS MOUTH? DO YOU?”
Me: “No, but- wait. Then how do you see?”
DEATH: “THROAT? STOMACH? ANYTHING?”
Me: Well no, but how… I mean-”
DEATH: “NO NOSE! I CAN’T EVEN SMELL WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. SO HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO TASTE IT?”
Me: “I’m sorry. But I thought-”
DEATH: “YOU THOUGHT? YOU THOUGHT YOU’D OFFER SOMEONE WITHOUT A NOSE OR TONGUE A TASTE OF SOMETHING?”
Me: “Really, I’m sorry.”
DEATH: “YOU’RE AN ASSHOLE, YOU KNOW THAT? A REAL BENIGHTED JERK!”
DEATH: “YOUR VERY PRESENCE REVILES ME! I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO TAKE YOUR LIFE. I’M GOING TO LET YOU LIVE AND SUFFER. AND I HOPE YOU’RE SUFFERING THROUGH SOMETHING REALLY PAINFUL RIGHT NOW!”
Me: (sotto voce): “…just this conversation…”

Right now I’m sitting here, paused in reading the book on my lap, eating from a big bowl of popcorn and drinking a delicious cup of coffee. And I’m imagining what I’d do if I were rich.
I don’t mean merely well-to-do or well-off, but rich! Seriously rich!
I think I’d like – no love – a bigger house where I’d have a beautiful private library.
And in that library, filled with books I’ve enjoyed for years and new ones I want to explore, I think I’d sit in a very comfortable (but no doubt expensive, well-made, hand-crafted) chair, reading the book on my lap, while eating from a bowl of popcorn and drinking a delicious cup of coffee!
Yeah! That’s what I’d do!
Oh, plus secret, hidden rooms (you pull this book, which reveals…) for my wife and I to play and scamper about within and without!
Hoo! Hoo! Hoo! That would be Sweet!
… and behind the house, a big lake for my jet skis!
So in summary, I’d do everything I’m doing now: Only BIGGER!
