BETWEEN CONSENTING ADULTS


Horizontally is the traditional position, Tom. I’m not sure how I feel about this. And you springing it on me after all these years!”

I know this may seem a bit out there, Laura, but honestly – people have done weirder things.”

Maybe so, Tom, but standing up? Let’s face it – this ‘thing’ is really huge and you know it! How will we keep from falling over?”

You’ve never been a scaredy cat before, Laura. You’ll be well protected, wrapped in my loving arms just like a fuzzy little caterpillar in a cozy cocoon.”

But Tom, what will other people think? I can just imagine the look on my sister’s face when she hears about this.”

Other people, Laura? Who cares what they think?! Why should the things we do and the decisions we make in the privacy of our own home matter to other people? Donna and Joe will probably be jealous they didn’t give it a whirl themselves.”

You’re right, of course, Tom, but let’s consider Donna and Joe for a minute. They’ve been in our lives forever. Don’t you think theyll be rather shocked?”

Only if you tell them, Laura. And by then the deed will be done! Hell! They might even want to join in. Donna IS your twin sister, after all; I kinda like the idea of that! The more the merrier! Lord knows, we have plenty of room. Let’s step out of that damn box and throw caution to the wind.”

Thomas Hastings, you’re such a devil sometimes!”

And you love it! What do you say, Laura? You ready to give it a go?”

As usual you’ve talked me into it. I can’t resist you and your wild ideas. Let’s do it, Tom!”

Fantastic! You will not be sorry, Laura. Just get yourself nice and comfy. Hang on, baby. Give me one little second. OK, I’m in!”

Hello. Thank you for using the live chat app at Tower of Memories. This is Melissa. How can I help you?”

Melissa, this is Tom Hastings. Laura and I have talked about your proposal and we’re ready to take the plunge.”

That’s exciting news, Tom! You won’t regret choosing vertical burial plots here at Tower of Memories.”
