Discussed this today with my wife as we passed yet another plastic bunch of flowers and a homemade cross at the side of the road. Why do people do this? Maybe I, we (I’m dragging her into it as.well) am/are evil or sociopaths, but if someone hung themself, you wouldn’t put a plaque up on the branch… If someone had a heart attack in bed you wouldn’t memorialize the pillows. What happened with flowers on a grave where the corpse lies patiently awaiting the zombie apocalypse and a poorly written, over-glowing review of their life (“everyone loved him!!!”) In the paper?
When will it end? If there is a mid air collision will we have geosynchronous hot air balloons marking the spot? Will water in which a person has been eaten by a shark collected, frozen and put on display?
I don’t get humans.
