Did they agree to meet at a certain time if one should die to tell the survivor what happens when you die?

Not quite a ghost in the story, but things post mortem.
War buddies? Irrelevant.
Organ donating? No.
Granting wishes? No.

JJDrew asked:

'Did they agree to meet at a certain time if one should die to tell the survivor what happens when you die?'

They made no such agreement, but that's not to say that's not what's happening. Getting warm.

Do these guys meet up regulary?
If so is one of them a ghost and one of them alive and neither of them realise it?
Look behind you...on your left...thats the real world.

Caleb, I see from rereading that you did answer my apparent question. Sorry!

Next question:

Do others witness the event?
Life is a system of circumstance presented coincidently in an illusory way.

Is there a time shift involved?

Caleb, Does reincarnation play a part in this story? Is some information being exchanged between these two buddies? Are both men alive at the beginning of this story? Are both guys dead at the end? At any point is one man dead and the other alive? Is there an angel in this story? Thank you, Roy McIlwee

Did one of the friends come to acquire something from the other?

Are they there to meet someone?

Are there any more friends coming to join them or is it going to be just the two of them?
There is nothing that remains so constant as change. Don't end up like concrete, all mixed up and permanently set. Smile

Jonesc2ii beat me to it. I'm thinking time-shift too.

They are both ghosts?
Or I like the reincarnation of the same guy but meeting up with his future/past self.

Do these guys meet up regulary? Yes, though that doesn't mean to say that both of them know that.

Both of them are in the same state - to save you asking the question, both of them are dead. Only one of them realises this fact.

Do others witness the event? Irrelevant.
Is there a time shift involved? Not as such - the story is more about perception and awareness.

Does reincarnation play a part in this story?
Both guys are dead.
Is some information being exchanged between these two buddies? Yes - superficially speaking. Also one of the guys is trying to pass on imformation that the other isn't yet receiving.
Are both men alive at the beginning of this story? Are both guys dead at the end? At any point is one man dead and the other alive? Is there an angel in this story?
Both guys dead throughout. No angel.
Did one of the friends come to acquire something from the other?
No.
Are they there to meet someone? No.
Are there any more friends coming to join them or is it going to be just the two of them?
Just the two of them.
Ellen, meeting up with a different time-self? Great idea (wish I'd thought of it!), but these two guys are both different people.

Are either or both of these men in a casket?
Is either one of these guys dreaming?
At any time during this story does an ambulance or hease arrive on the scene?
From start to finish does this story take longer than a week? Thank you, Roy McIlwee, Scranton, Penna.

Do life support systems or the displaying of mummies have anything to do with the story?

Not a wake.
Neither in a casket - this is a kind of life-after-death situation.
No ambulance or hearse involved here.
Very difficult say whether one of these guys is dreaming, as the two men are perceiving what's happening very differently.
Similarly, for one of these friends this story lasts an evening. But not for the other...

No life-supprort systems or mummies either.

Ok, so one is dead and knows it.
The other is dead and doesn't know it.
The latter is reliving the bar scene over and over and each time gets a little closer to the truth (ala Ground Hog Day?).

Am I warmer?

If not, does one turn to the bartender and say "A *** penguin car, alright?" <<==Those who know will get it.

Is the friend who realizes they are dead attempting to tell the other friend that they are dead?

(hope that's not as confusing a question to you as it is to me...and I wrote the %*#(@ thing...

So the place is an old AND a new haunt for both of them.

Snickering like an idiot who was too tired to read the whole thread.

For who does the story last only one evening. The guy trying to tell the other one something or the other way around.
Are both of them represented and presented in human form or could one be like a Jack Daniels?

Did both these guys die at the same time?
Do either of them come back to life?
Are they Siamese twins?
Does one enter the bar already dead?
Thank you, Roy McIlwee, Scranton, Penna.

Sorry I haven't answered your questions - phone lines are down by the 100,000's in my area. Just a quick message on a borrowed computer to say I will get back to this as soon as I'm back online.
