Your Funeral
Eternal Rest?
Other parts of your body are plumped up by pushing mud into tiny cuts in your skin. All you need now are false eyes and perhaps some false hair. You are almost looking alive again!
False eyes can be made out of onions. As they have strong antiseptic qualities, they can also be stuffed into the body cavity.

Based on the book You Wouldn't Want To Be An Egyptian Mummy!
