Re: A Lunch TIme Poll

First month:

Want to say:
Run away to the tropical paradise I've always dreamed of, live life to
the fullest, sleeping under the stars, making love to beautiful island
girls, drinking rum, and avoiding all thought of what lies ahead.

Continue to go into the office everyday, bringing in as much money as
possible for my wife and children who will need it after I'm gone, and
drastically increasing my life insurance policy. Spend time at home
saying goodbye, and building memories, videoing personal thoughts and
wishes for my girls.

Second month:

Want to say:
Die when my time is up, suffering through with as much dignity as
possible, and trying not to be too big of a burden to my family.

Suck on the barrel of my Glock.

I'd like to be more flamboyant, care-free and live-for-the-moment in
instance one, and more courageous in instance two, but I know myself too

I notice you didn't answer your own poll, Tom.
