    Call up everyone I know and love and tell them how much they're loved, and then spend my time wrapped up with Fran.

    No, the question is What wouldn't I do? I would do everything I've ever been afraid to do. Admissions of admiration, love, and all that mushy stuff.

    Oh, I don't know.. Maybe fly to Mecca, strap on a few explosives, get some 9/11 revenge - OLD SCHOOL!

    I think I would write and mail letters to everyone who is important to me telling them just what they mean to me. Then I would find someone to take my cat. Then I would get together with my closest friends and eat lots and lots of yummy, fattening food and drink lots of expensive, delicious wine, laughing and joking the entire time.

     
  • At 2:24 PM, Blogger Valerie said…

    Oh, and I would warn the folks in Mecca about anonymous' plan.

    I am trying to live my life so that if this happened I wouldn't have a lot of unfinished business to take care of. There are probably a few people who need to hear again that I love them.
    I would like a nice meal, and time in a beautiful place, by the ocean, perhaps.

    forty-eight hours of unprecedented redemption. i'd do all those things i was scared to do because it would all be over in forty-eight hours, and there is nothing left to lose (like the next seventy-six years of my lifE)

    I think I would go sky diving. After all even if things didn't work out, I only lost 47 hours of my life. That I could live with or should I say without.

    i would go swimming with the dolphins with the love of my life and son for the rest of my time here on earth.

    Wow i had this comment half written out and decided I couldn't sit and think about what I'd do..it made me too anxious lol. I would have so many things i'd want to do and don't ever want to know if i only have that much time left i guess..eeks.

    I would immediately jump a plane and fly to L.A. and have sex with a certain someone that I have known only a short time but am immensely attracted to. I would fly back home immediately and spend the last 24 hours with my family, my closest friends, and my little pooch. And I'd buy bottles of an '84 Bordeaux and bottles of rose champagne to share with everyone...and I'd send my book to a dozen publishers even though it's only in its first draft...I'd tell my exboyfriend I was sorry I left him the way I did and hug him one last time.

    These all sound nice, but I think most folks would actually break down into gibbering piles of panic and horror as soon as the initial shock passed. Then they'd be takin' some serious stock of their lives, ie, "Ok, so, I'm thinking if there's a God, I better make sure I'm on His good side, FAST"; you know, that kinda thing, even if they hadn't been in a church (or something socially equivelant) in twenty six years or more. Very few people younger than fifty go gentle into that good night, baby. Believe it.

    I'd have a cigarette, chat on the phone, realize I have nothing to wear and as usual.....I would just Keep it Moist and Keep it Moving.

    I would take my significant other(DR)and my little boy and go to the prettiest place I've ever been to in my life: the mountains of NC. I wouldn't tell them what's up, and simply eat ,drink and be merry till the end.

     
  • At 3:46 PM, Blogger Dr. Deborah Serani said…

    No doubt, my husband and my child. Maybe visiting the green fields by my childhood home again. That would be a perfect circle.

    I'd spend it quietly, with my children. I'd tape us talking, so they'd remember me. When they slept, I'd write to them--everything I could think to tell them.

     
  • At 3:23 PM, Blogger Joe said…

    I would write a lot of letters to everyone I know, and tell them everything I never got a chance to tell them. Then I would spend it with my 3 best friends, and we would celebrate, because they are the ones who will have it harder than I.

    I try to keep those in my life aware of how I feel about them however I'd write some letters, plan for my pets, and want to go to the ocean with my sweetie and love and laugh.

    I'd gather up my family close, send for my relations in Ottawa to come here. Hug my daughters, make love to my husband and cry... I don't want to die yet.

    48 hours? Oh shit. Well...for the first 24 I need to school somebody on how to do my part in our organization.

    The next 4 hours belong to my daddy. We'd finish getting to know each other. I'd learn all I could about him.

    I need to spend a few hours with KSH, my oldest, dearest friend. Then, I'd take my kids to their favorite park, and I'd climb through the tunnels and stuff with them instead of just watching. I want their final hours with me to be remembered as the happiest they've ever shared with me.

    I'd spend an hour taping myself giving the kids advice on some of the rough spots life offers and how to handle themselves during those times.

    The last few hours, I'd spend with my husband making sure he knows how to do both his part AND my part as parents. I'd reassure him and let him know he can handle it and that he's the best daddy that they could hope for.

    All these things that have been posted don't sound like last minute, I am gonna die things. Why don't you all do them now, while you are alive!!!!!! They are not unusual.
    My God, if I only had 48 hours to live, I would find some gorgeous young stud, buy the best champagne available, have sex for at least 24 of those hours, enjoy the beauty of the earth, maybe have those 24 hours of sex outside, there ya go. I would then spend the last 24 hours with complete satisfaction, with my family, doing and saying what I say every day anyway to those I love,
    "I LOVE YOU AND MY LIFE HAS BEEN BLESSED. I HAVE NO REGRETS"

    I'm a control freak - so I'd dash home and start going through my shit... make sure all the bills & accounts were lined out for my survivors to deal with & understand; shred everything I never wanted anybody to see; make lists upon lists of things I wanted everybody to remember or know so they could "survive without me" (apparently I also have a God Complex).

    Then I'd call all my friends over and have a few hours with just them, and tell each of them how much I love them and why.

    Then I'd boot everybody out but my immediate family, and do the same. Then I'd boot the kids out, and the last couple hours would be just me and the hubs. And he would have to stay with me while I 'went', no matter how hard it was for him, because I'd need him to be there... and he would do it.

    I would talk to as many people as I could. I would spend most of my time attached to my husband and daughter. I would videotape/record stuff for my daughter so she could have something tangible of me later.

    I think I would be too worried about my imminent death to do anything at all other than Valium.

     
  • At 10:50 PM, Blogger Gatsu said…

    First, I would punch whoever told me I was going to die in 48 hours. As to who I would spend time with I would say my girlfriend Sylvia but I want to do that all the timeā€¦

    Eat every sicker's bar I could get my hands on. I'm diabetic.

    Spend two ordinary great days with my children in the mountains and re-write my will.
