Dave wasn’t afraid to die.
He was afraid to be buried.
What if he were inadvertently buried with a rat.
A rat with claustrophobia.
This would be a horrible thing for the rat in the coffin.
He would need a flashlight!!!
It is unlikely “said” rat would ever be in a Spelling Bee.
That would suck.
What if termites burrowed in… and some day he had a wooden leg.
What if the coffin they put him in was actually meant for a donkey.
There would be enough room for a dolphin.
What if they also then buried him with a dolphin.
The thought of death wasn’t so horrible as the thought of being buried…
As a consequence Dave decided to continue to live…
Going forward he also avoided dolphins and Spelling Bees.
