|Odd shopping mall juxtapositions

So, I'm making a trip to Penzey's in Rockville -- and while I'm loving the ability to just drop by and pick up a few spices/herbs and being able to "sniff" test everything, I do miss the days of needing to place whopping big quarterly orders, seeing the big box on the steps, unwrapping everything, giving new items a "sniff"...and then having a very fragrant box next time I had to ship a gift to someone else.
As I'm leaving the shop, which is chock full of jars every herb and spice you could think of, my nose in overload from snorting five different kinds of cinnamon, four different kinds of vanilla, I notice the other shops in the mall. A paintball store...and a crematory/funerary service...and a custom embroidery shop.
So...if a paintball game went tragically awry...you've got the funeral services right here...next to the spice shop...and you could get custom embroidered funerary wraps...
Can a new era of mummification be far behind?
