323. Leave someone a surprise in my will

My Story

Updated November 6, 2009

I’ve actually just finished reading Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris, where one of the characters dies and leaves his coworker a beautifully hand-carved totem pole rather unexpectedly. The totem pole turned out to be quite valuable and the man who inherited it donated it back to the Native American tribe it had originated from.

I wonder what sort of thing I could surprise someone with. It would be nice to leave something valuable to someone who touched my life or change it in some way, but it would have to be someone the executor could track down. Hmmm…I’ll have to think about this one.
