No Good At Goodbyes

Ever wonder what will happen to that priceless Pez collection you've been building for over 20 years when you go to that big toy box in the sky? Or the box of orphaned electronics cables that went to … something? I'll tell you what happens: Some poor doofus has to lug them to the curb, cursing your corpse the whole way. How about instead, you quit thinking about yourself and go listen to author death educator Gail Rubin as she discusses her book, Kicking the Bucket List: 100 Downsizing and Organizing Things to Do Before You Die, this Saturday, Dec. 10, from 1 to 3pm at Treasure House Books and Gifts. The event is free, so there's no excuse to go on leaving your problems to the next jerk. (Joshua Lee)
