The End

Since the world is ending tomorrow according to the Mayan calendar, I've maxed out all my credit cards. I didn't pay any of my bills for December, and I haven't flossed once.
I stopped by the store and bought more sun screen just in case the the forecast to the right is correct.
Jilda and I watched a movie recently entitled: Seeking a friend for the end of the world.
Steve Carell stared with Keira Knightly. Steves movies are sometimes funny, but this one was not. It was poignant in ways I did not expect.
But the theme of the movie gives one something to consider.
If you knew the world would end in two weeks, what would you do?
I've actually spent time contemplating this scenario. Obviously work didn't figure into the equation. I didn't spend much time thinking about getting new tires on the truck, I never once though about calling my financial planner. What I did think about was my friends and family.
Tonight Jilda and I met four of our oldest and dearest friends. Brenda, Danny, Tom and Judy. Sitting there talking, laughing, and getting caught up with each others lives was uplifting.
I couldn't help but think, if the world was ending, what better way to spend it than with the people you love.


  1. I would live my life the way I live it now, as if each day were the last one...

  2. Well, I don't know about you... but I'm off to find a new calendar for my Mayan friend's Christmas gift. :)

  3. lol
    I don't think I'd change anything.
    If the end was coming, there is nothing one can do. But sitting and waiting is not an option.
    This would be the time to steer clear of TV and radio and panic.
    We as a people have a false sense of security.
    No matter what you do, people die and will continue to do so.They say there are no such thing as accidents.
    If everything is already planned to happen then why have court systems in place to judge a man for killing? He was supposed to do it in the plan of things.
    So ......when the end comes, it will come when least expected and we wouldn't have time to think today is the last day.

  4. I'd prefer not to know when the end of the world comes! Sometimes ignorance is bliss! LOL! Take care

  5. I think that you have a good plan of action to be with family and friends. Not bad for Life 101.

    I would like to do the same but my family is scattered. I probably would look for my maker and eat everything that I'm not supposed to eat.

    Have a good weekend

  6. I guess I would live my last two weeks the same way I always live -- loving my dogs.
