She woke up and looked at her phone.

"Only six?" It was too early to get up but too late to go back to sleep. She got up anyways and walked to the kitchen to get breakfast. She poured a bowl of cereal and spooned some into her mouth. The spoon began to sag and her face splashed into her bowl.

"So Miss Braithwaite, how did you umm… pass on?" She was standing in front of a man in a white suit. He was writing on paper lined with gold. "Miss Braithwaite?" she snapped into focus.

"Yeah?"

"I asked you how you umm… you know."

"No I don't," she said.

"How you died?"

"Died? I'm dead?"

"Are you okay?" asked the man, "you look mad."

"Well if I'm dead I'm obviously not okay.

"Take it easy, I just need to fill out your form before judgment. Where do you remember being last?"

"At home I think. I… did I drown?"

"Were you showering?"

"No I was, I was in my kitchen eating and I was really tired. I guess I drowned in …" she paused, "I drowned in my cereal."

"Oh," he said sifting awkwardly in his chair. "Do you want to go back?"

"Can I?"

"Not usually but in your particular case, I think It'd be okay. Here just close your eyes and imagine," his words began to fade the second her eyelids met.

"Lizzy! Lizzy!" someone was hitting her face. Lizzy opened her eyes. "Are you okay?"

"Yeah, I'm fine."

"Did you just fall asleep in your cereal?"

"I guess."

"And you're sure you're okay?"

"I feel fine." Lizzy's roommate burst into hysterical laughter.

"You, hahaha you fell asleep, hahaha, you almost died in your cereal! I'm going to make fun of you for forever for that."
