(This is a continuation on the theme of last week”s ABTN Comment, which, if you recall, told the tale of Singapore Air Lines latest innovation for the deceased).
At an airport a security officer opened a suspicious-looking box that had just been turned in by a cabin staff member on an arriving flight and found that it contained a powdery substance of some sort. Licking his finger, he dipped it into the powder and touched his tongue to taste it. ”Well, it”s not a narcotic,” he said, sure of himself.
At that moment, a distraught elderly woman tottered down the aisle and asked the flight attendant if he had come across a small engraved casket containing her husband”s ashes.
