The man thought dead awoke in his coffin
and became alarmed at his condition.
"O my! I hope indeed they didn't fix the lid!"
But of course it was firmly fixed with screws.
His next troubled thought was:
"Am I buried alive,
or will they burn me alive?
Rather buried alive than cremated alive!"
He pounded his fists against the lid,
but it was solid, so no sound went through it,
and he couldn't hear a thing above it -
modern coffin lids are thick and solid without holes.
"Well, well, I guess I'll notice if it gets too hot
or if I start to freeze," so he resigned
and tried to make the best of it,
to make himself more comfortable;
but then suddenly he noticed to his utter joy:
his wife had sent along with him his precious jewel,
his favourite and dearest toy, his mobile phone!
He cried for joy at his salvation
and made a call immediately.
His wife, amazed, quite bluntly answered:
"Darling, we thought you were dead!
Where in heaven's name are you?"
The moral here is: never leave your loved one
without access to his mobile phone,
in case he wants to reach you from the other side.
