Vignette: Overachiever

She was an elderly Tracy Flick, a classic overachiever--right up to her own death--and then some.

She was 85 years old, and she knew she'd be going one of these days. She had the funeral planned for quite some time, the paperwork, the estate. She'd even carefully selected the coffin.

Paying last respects, the bereaved shuffled past her lifeless frame nestled in padded satin; and as they did, they received three final words in the form of a button pinned to her lapel: Vote for Hillary!

(a story relayed to me by my father about a funeral he attended last week)
