You leave these things around you’re just asking for an overzealous maid and her vacuum, a stray cigarette in search of an ashtray, or a yard sale accident. That’s why I specified in my will after cremation, my ashes be thrown in the face of my ex.

These things happen. I once “inadvertently” set fire to pictures of my husband’s ex girlfriends. Tragic accident.

He kept the exes ashes in a Turtle. Wonder what Freud would say.

” Finally, the turtle with prudence gives us the image of the sober, stolid, phlegmatic, careful man, who may in fact be patiently enduring a party for the sake of his wife, who simply wants to be “seen” and make a good appearance, and who consequently instructs her husband how to behave, even though he actually “behaves” very little.”
