The List

Scrub the crimson from your skin.

In a few days, light one candle at the closed casket. (Try not to smile.)

Offer your “sincere” condolences to the widow. (Don’t rush off after. Stay – share some heartwarming stories about the deceased.)

  1. I like the tutorial here – it’s a tight and subtle application of the genre. I would have *loved* to see you tie it in a little better with the title, giving a hint to folks who don’t read between the lines that there’s more going on than just mourning!


  2. The underlying maliciousness here is wonderful! I agree with Rowan on the title being perhaps a tad too subtle (in fact, I went back to the title after reading her comment and went “Ohhhhh! Now I get it”).
