I met a local woman through Facebook who collects those damned things. She's a Goth MILF, but she's got postmortem portraits everywhere in her house, and some tools of the trade like this adjustable wrought iron stand that held a body in a standing position. I can't abide those things and I go to great lengths to avoid running into her.

If you live in a city, perhaps born and raised there, you may look at a local landmark and think about one day visiting it. But you never do. Tourists go there, maybe, to line up for hours to ride to the top floor and look out on the city, but you never do.

Then you move away, and you think back to how you lived right next to the landmark and never went to visit it. So as a tourist, you go and line up and take the elevator ride to the top and look out at the city, but it isn't your city anymore, not since you've moved away. It's a city belonging to all those people who live down below, running from their home to their job, passing by this landmark every day but never stopping in.

These families should have taken a picture while their daughter was alive, but only now in death do they realize how those precious moments of life were fleeting and were taken for granted. It's their way of being tourists, of grabbing hold of something which is no longer theirs to hold. A cheap plastic souvenir of lost chances.

The word you're looking for, subby, is 'prudish'. A 'prude' is someone who is 'prudish'.
