A family in Puerto Rico was not going to say goodbye to a family member before allowing him to play dominos and have a drink one more time. This guy must have really, really enjoyed dominos; so much so that his family had him play them after he died.
He even has the blue track suit!
I guess we all grieve in different ways. Playing dominos may seem like an odd choice to you, but if this is what he loved, then maybe it gives comfort to those who loved him. I’m guessing for many of us, if we dropped dead today, our families could prop us up in the corner, our cold, lifeless hands gripping our smart phones as if we are sending out one more Tweet from The Beyond.
This odd way to pay tribute to the dead is actually becoming popular. Earlier this year a man who loved to dress up as The Green Lantern died and his family decided to keep him in the costume and prop up his embalmed body for his wake. Corpse Cosplay might be big by next year's Comic-Con. Fingers crossed.
When you die, how would you want your family members to prop up and pose your corpse? What would you be doing?
