The report of my death was an exaggeration
"I'm not dead, I've just been resting."
"You do look a bit pale though. Are you sure you're not dead?"
"Sometimes you've got a take a bit of a rest, even from things you enjoy."
"You're not breathing."
"I am. It's very shallow. I told you I was resting."
"Also, what's that smell?"
"My new aftershave. It was a present. Do you like it?"
"No, no. Not really."
"Cold Corpse, it's called. I'm told it's very popular."
"Mortuary workers, Undertakers, Grave diggers and some forensic scientists. However only those forensic scientists not cool and good looking enough to appear in Silent Witness or Bones."
"OK, I'll catch you around."
"Good plan. We must have a curry. Anyway before you go, could you do something for me?"
"Could you close the lid? Ta. I need a lie-in."
