In every home, there is a place where the Dead wait.
They wait, while we go about our insignificant lives, and worry about insignificant things.
Then, when we are gone or asleep, they come out.
We all know where that place is in our home; that place where we dare not tarry after doing whatever it is we need to do.
While we may not know for certain why we cannot allow ourselves to linger there, we know that we must leave as soon as possible.
That is why that place was chosen as the place where the Dead wait.
