The phone call I didn’t want to make

I had to make an uncomfortable call to my dad tonight.

I need to send off the body disposal form i.e. what do I want to be done with my body if I die on Everest and the body is recoverable, before I leave for Antarctica on Thursday.

I think I caught my dad a bit by surprise, describing the worse-case scenarios on the mountain and asking for his input with regards to what to do with the body…not a call that any child should have with their parents, really, but in this case, a necessary evil.
