LOL That's a good one, but it's pretty much the truth. The men and boys would cry out and flail their arms, and the women and girls would rip their clothes, bare their breasts, and throw dirt in their hair...


I don't think it ever registered with me that there were male mourners. I somehow thought that was more of a female job. (they cry harder than men? Wink )

Somehow I now have this image of people coming home from work:
wife: "Had a rough day at work dear?"
husband: "Oh it's the same as always. Some dirt, some wailing, pretend you care, then go home..."
wife: "I told you to stay in school, learn your hieroglyphics..."
husband: "Yeah, yeah, yeah Rolling Eyes "

Of course it included men and women. Equal-opportunity drama. Surprised

LOL That's great. It's like an ancient Egyptian sitcom. I can almost here the canned laughter in the background.

Sorry, conorp, I almost forgot to reply. I didn't give any thought to "Turbon's wages" when I originally wrote that so I went back to the book from which I got the embalmer's list. There's no additional information. I tried to find something on the internet but came up dry.

To cut a long story short, I have no more idea what Turbon's wages are than you do. Anxious
