Just checked my e-mail and found a message from my in-laws telling us where the key to the safe deposit box is, the contact information of their financial advisor and the details of their pre-paid funeral plans.
They're heading out of the country for a couple of weeks.
They're good at covering all the bases....even the possibility of their untimely deaths.
I laughed when I read it because it's so out of character compared to the normal e-mails I get from them.
It made me think that we always laugh at death when its imminent presence isn't felt.
It's only when it's staring us in the face that we take it seriously.
