A couple years ago I had an asthma attack so bad I was blue and not visibly breathing for minutes, I was taken to a hospital and injected with epinephrine and revived and started breathing etc. I survived is what I’m saying, in case you were on the edge of your seat
Anyway talking about it recently my wife said she was not only in disbelief because she had lost her mother in the last five years which devastated her and made her think this was surreal to lose a young husband, but she was worried about funeral arrangements. I’m from the US and live with her in Trinidad, and she was like she was worried like she would not know what to do would my body gave to be shipped back to the USA and she would never see me or would she be harassed why I died here.
I’m like you’re my wife and NEXT OF KIN so I’d assume I’d be buried or cremated here, in the event that I did die. I mean who the hell else would want me buried in the US away from my wife and son, my mom?!
She was just like she didn’t know and was afraid like the US embassy would take over or something and leave her powerless, which made me go what?! I’m pretty sure embassies don’t give rat asses about dead people.
The whole thing was just strange with me thinking she had way more power than she thought she had. And I was like obviously I want to be buried or cremated where my wife and son can access easily, and fuck whatever my mom or an embassy think.
I just found it bizarre.
