Mummy's Recipe

Believe it or not, I found the following entry while turning the pages of an old diary that I used as a rough notebook. It's written in my handwriting. I remember watching a programme on Discovery Channel about this, but I really don't remember writing it down.

Recipe for making a mummy (Egyptian Style)
  1. Wash well
  2. Remove organs
  3. Pat dry
  4. Cover with baking soda and salt
  5. Change mixture thrice a week
  6. Wrap in plastic packs (stinks!)
  7. When mummy dries up, wrap in bandages and put in coffin.

I can't say what made me write down this macabre procedure. Or was it written by my Mr. Hyde-like alter ego about whom I don't know? In any case, my enemies better beware, or they may find themselves gift-wrapped inside a mile of bandage.

Guess we all have secret recipies for making mummies tucked away somewhere in our past. But this one takes the cake.
