Well, I went to the vet, picked up the box of ashes and there was a cremation certificate on top of the box as well as some lovely pet resources inside the envelope...
I went to the car full of curiosity. I never saw a human nor an animal in a cremation urn/box so I didn't know what to expect.
I had precisely 30 minutes to get to a "Walleyball" game so I knew if I didn't look inside the box then, I wouldn't get to look at the ashes until after dark.
My running assumption was that I should be very, very, very careful opening the latch and subsequently - the box.
I opened the box expecting to see loose ashes inside, but instead there is something that looks like a sock...
So, still, with morbid curiosity, I am interested to know how fragile this "sock" is...so I begin to poke it.
It is noticeably firm & I take a look around to make sure no one had been looking at me. I would have surely looked like an idiot at that moment in time.
Then I began to think what a great idea that would be for a Candid Camera episode...find a public, but little traveled area like a public library and have a box or urn of ashes on a table with a certificate of cremation nearby and document what people do when they come upon the box/urn.
