if you keep the ashes in an urn and entomb them
My daughter wants me cremated so she can use me as an egg timer. She says that every time she has an egg, she will remember me. But surely it depends on the size of the egg.
I will run through at the same rate, because there is the same mass of me. But if it is a small egg then surely it will be over-cooked by the time I have transposed from the top to the bottom. Likewise, if it is a very large egg, there may not be enough of me to ensure the egg is properly cooked. So, I have suggested that she either puts me into two egg timers and take the timing of whichever one finishes last or give up eating eggs!
