The last thing Bert remembered was his scolding wife.
Now he was queueing, in the rain!
'Morning, Bert. Name's Austin. How d’you want to return?'
'This new to you?'
'Course it's new...' Bert paused in astonishment.
'Ah! This is my fourth death. What’s it to be: guy or gal? I tried womanhood in 1840. Spent a miserable life in domestic service.'
‘This is so sudden.’
‘That’s death for you, Bert. Male or female?’
Images of his wife snarling over monthly unmentionables, childbirth and menopause flashed.
‘Male please,’ said Bert.
‘Good choice,’ said Austin.
