Death And All Your Stuff
The Grim Reaper doesn’t bring a moving van.
There’s no good way to say, “Mom, can I throw your stuff away because you’re going to be dead soon?”
The Swedes have a word for it (of course) — döstädning, or Swedish death cleaning. Which is all fine and dandy, but my 92-year-old mother is not jumping on that particular reindeer sleigh.
