Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

"That's how Mother was hired by Danielson Family Funeral Home as a hair stylist for dead people. She was promised forty-five dollars for every corpse she styled.

'And just think, Daralynn,' Mother told me the day she got the job, 'I won't have to waste a slim dime on hairspray. A person's hair's not likely to get windblown lying in a coffin.'"
