“Never leave one of the deceased in a room without a light on – it’s undignified.”

    ‘one of the deceased’? Sounds like a piece in a machine to me.
    And why not leave a person’s body without a light on in the room anyway?
    Ru is on the money with the fridge light; and I – for one – completely trust his research. His wife is a good woman to eventually open the door .

    Indeed Jonathan. If I waited for my wife to open the fridge and let me out, well…
    Seriously, I am deeply suspicious of this stylised formality towards the dead. I just don’t believe it.
