Life in the Morgue

At the morgue, people were so desensitized that they would eat lunch in the glass walled room adjacent to the autopsy room. A viewing room. Because it had the best air-conditioning in the building. So they would eat in there and maybe somebody would come in who had been found after being dead for three days and they would say: that is the exact purple I want for those drapes in the study. They didn't miss a beat. They could eat through anything.

David Sedaris, journalist, 2010
