Two to the power of… Funeral Directing

Charles Cowling

 

You remember Kathryn’s post here setting out the rules of the Two Things game? Here’s how it goes:

Example: 

The Two Things about Arranging a Funeral

1. Do what needs to be done.
2. Do NOT do what doesn’t need to be done.

Ru Callender

2. The bereaved are often too blasted by grief to know what they want.

Can’t improve on Ru’s succinct analysis, but here’s a supplementary offering:

1. The one person who the funeral is all about won’t be there.

2. The people who are there are what a funeral is all about.

1. Uniformed people induce compliance at a gathering.

2. Numerous accessories can be made available.

1. Funeral directors don’t actually direct the funeral ceremony
2. Funeral directors have a lot of control over the funeral ceremony.

I have to say, I think Rupert’s suggestion pretty much has this one sewn up as well!
