ok, i’m sorry, this is just weird. i mean, REALLY weird. i mean, i want to give people space to process a painful death in a way that makes sense to them. and i’m all for cremation. but putting the ashes in an urn that’s a teddy bear?
that’s what huggable urns offers.
i would expect a good amount of the purchasers are former pet owners. that’s odd enough — but people do some weird stuff with their dead pets.
but if i’m ever in someone’s house, and move a teddy bear to sit down in a chair, and that someone says, “oh, be careful with mom there,” and i answer, “i’m sorry? mom?”, and they say, “yeah, that teddy bear has mom’s ashes in it.” well, let’s just say that won’t be a happy day, and teddy bears will be forever ruined for me (not that they’re in the ‘make marko happy’ club as it is).
