Who is the most famous mummy in Kentucky?
Surprised no one’s getting this. To bring you up to speed, here’s the story. Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, has a mummy. On campus. For real. From Egypt. From about 700 B.C. Stored over the years in closets and classrooms. Not for science class. Just, because.
The imagination runs rampant. Who is this mummy? An early student, still laboring over the mother of all final exam essay questions? A picture to students everywhere of what happens when you hit snooze one too many times? Someone determined to be named Older than Average Student of the Year?
Surely she’s a good example to students and faculty alike in one way: our days are numbered. God knows when each of us will live our last day on this earth, just as he knows when the lady who is now the Kentucky mummy lived her last day. Let’s live those days well!
