What will you do with the last month of your life?

Asked by filmfann (40801 points ) November 20th, 2012

12–21-2012 is just one month away. The Mayans have said we are all toast. They were pretty smart. They invented Chocolate.
What do you have planned?

No change, I will do exactly what I do every other day of the year. I will even do the laundry.

Well…the idea is…. I won’t KNOW it’s the last month of my life! haha
I hope I am one of those people that doesn’t feel well for a little while and goes to the doctor and is told ” you have 5 hours to live.” lol
I have zero desire, nor plan of doing any major, life extending treatments. No thanks. Just give me morphine and I’ve made my peace.

I would, obviously, take care of the immediate stuff like letting family know and other arrangements like either euthanizing or re-homing my pets. That would be a big thing.
Otherwise I would sit in the sun, smoke pot, eat ice cream, float in my hot tub and fade away in zen mode.

Making toast.

I’d eat my favorite things. It’s kind of like a last meal, isn’t it? Lots of shrimp cocktail. Rack of lamb. Souffled potatoes. A deep chocolate dessert. I’ll have to think about the vegetable. But if I’m going to die, who cares if the meal is balanced?

Coloma's avatar

@Sunny2 If you’re dying you don’t HAVE to eat your vegetables. I’d have cherry cheesecake and wine for dinner every night. haha

I’m going to keep on buying groceries and paying my bills. Besides, I have a hair appointment on January 11th that I expect to keep.

The Mayans may have been smart, but where are they now?

Carpe diem. Everyday.

I’m planning on celebrating Christmas with my aunt and my cousin on 12–25-12. I am not going to let any damn long dead Mayans ruin my Christmas this year.

Thanks for the reminder. I think I’m going to plan a party. I just have to think of a theme…

Well, at least I’ll have received my M.A. before the world ends…

I’ll spend a lot of it trying to find awesome Festivus gifts without shopping at any retailer that is open on Thanksgiving Day.

Yay, one man protest.

I’d hug a lot of people and say goodbye, and tell them why they were special to me. Then I would go on a wild circus of partying, flinging my clothes off in seedy nightclubs, kissing hot strangers. Fly a hot air balloon, eat whatever I wanted and smoke like a train. I’d also dress in leather and go to an underground bondage club, and whack some ass.

Hey.. you have just made me think. I should be doing this right? Gosh who knew?

“Whack some ass” LMFAO!!!

As I am a diabetic, and in honor of the Mayans fine invention, I would eat lots and lots of only the finest chocolate. Fudge, truffles, hot chocolate, and (of course) chocolate chip cookies – until, finally, I would slip into a blissful sugar coma.

@Shippy: Wow, I never would have guessed you were a Domme… Hot ;) And yes, you should get on all of these plans, RIGHT NOW !

@cookieman: Let’s go to Paris together and gorge ourselves on macarons and truffles That’s been my terminal illness diabetic contingency plan for a long time.

cookieman's avatar

@bookish1: I’m right there with you – so long as we can also go to those late-night crepe booths they have.
Mmmm… warm Nutella and banana crepes at midnight.

Shippy's avatar

@bookish1 and @cheebdragon I told you Fluther was my therapy, Gosh I am still in shock!!

Nothing different at all for me, even if I’d decided to take this 2012 thing seriously. I’m convinced that this life is just a small part of a much bigger life to come when we pass on so this will obviously affect how I answer a question like this vs somebody who thinks that ‘death’ is the end of everything.
