Unnerving Coincidence

 I get phishing attempts by text every few days claiming to be from FedEx.  Today's was from a Cremation Service.  When I opened two boxes on my doorstep they were ashes boxes for my wife and me.  We signed up with Neptune Society a few days ago.  I knew our ashes would be delivered in these very elegant boxes, but their arrival now caused me to think of Isaac Asimov's famous science paper parody: "The Endochronic Properties of Resublimated Thiotimoline" Astounding Science Fiction (1948)

What if we do not die?  (Yes, my wife considers me a hopeless optimist.)  Where will we store them?  Will our kids know where they are?
