    But you wouldn’t be sand, you would be ash. And that would make for a shitty hourglass.

      So you can continue to be shitty in family game night! Don’t you also want to continue to cause disagreements and conflicts between family members?

      Don’t let my family know, I still want to keep ruining speed Monopoly…

      But I wouldn’t object if my ashes are like, 85% sand by volume. I’d be too dead.

      Maybe you could mix the ashes with clay, have it fired and then grind or crush the ceramic into sand.

        It would definitely need some processing. Bit of Fumed Silica might also help to make it free-flowing.

        We’re all neckless after being cremated.

        But if we end up on a necklace, does that make it ironic?

        you say that like it would even be noticeable. You would probably just think it’s a weird nuclear fallout snowglobe type thing, until you flipped it over and looked at the bottom. Or dropped it.

        Different-length hourglasses for different people. Grandfather over there is a 3-hours, but if you don’t eat your cornflakes, Timmy, you’re only going to be a 3-minutes!

      And if you stuck a dagger in it it would cause everyone to turn into sand zombies.

    Reminds me of a comic where Chaos Spacemarines from different factions are holding a meeting and the Tzeentch marine never shows up so the Khorne marine screams “HES PLAYING US LIKE A GODDAMN FIDDLE” but the real meta joke is that the Tzeentch marine is there, he’s the sand in the hourglass.

      Or a stepping stone! I wanna be a stepping stone! You can mix ashes into concrete and it makes it stronger depending on the amount.
