Gladys, armed with her burying staff, set about to tend the graves of the latest dear departed. Being somewhat new to the job, she wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, so when she saw the orb in the sky, she thought it was normal under the recent sad circumstances.
Standing at her tallest and most respectful, she lifted her hand aloft.
Believing that the spirits had come to collect their souls and transport them to the next world, she bid them a fond farewell.

  1. Yes, well, Gladys was never the sharpest tool in the shed, was she? I’m glad you had a stab at clearing up the enigma. It’s left me wondering about things like burying staffs and Monfgolfiers coming to collect dead souls…

    “and most respectful” What a nice phrase.
