I’d imagined becoming a butterfly or a harp-playing angel or nothing at all following my death. It was a shock, therefore, when shortly after I died I found myself standing at a busy roadside, dressed entirely in black, clutching an equally black scythe. I had no idea what I was supposed to do now.
