Well, that gal I was one of the mourners, being my wife's friend well, that gal, though I hedn't, perhaps, oughter say lying in that casket, fetched all the way from some A1 establishment in Chicago, filled with flowers and furbelows didn't really seem to be of much account. Well, although my wife's friend, and me a mourner well, now, I was disappointed and discouraged."

But what Gilgamesh is not permitted to hear, the mourner is told. A description is given him of how the dead fare in Aralû. The problem, however, is somewhat different in the story of the descent of Ishtar, from the one propounded in the twelfth tablet of the Gilgamesh epic.
